A glazed Krispy Kreme doughnut, split open and stuffed with savory sloppy joe, doused in a tomato-based sauce and sprinkled with cheese. It's not a response to Dunkin' Donut's new bacon-and-egg-on-a-donut breakfast sandwich, though. The Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe is the brainchild of Charlie Boghosian, owner of Chicken Charlie's, which has been providing food to county fairs in Southern California for 17 years.

Still, the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe sandwich is something new, even for him.

"We're known for crazy fried foods, so this is a little bit different," Boghosian told Yahoo! Shine in a telephone interview. "It's crazy, but it's not fried."

Boghosian said that he came up with the idea after one too many of his wife's sloppy joe dinners.

"I've eaten so much sloppy joe the traditional way," he said. "I thought, 'We've got to change it up.' "

Chicken Charlie's already has a Krispy Kreme sandwich on its menu — it's a chicken breast drizzled with honey and layered between two glazed doughnuts, and it's a customer favorite. So stuffing a doughnut with sloppy joe meat wasn't too much of a stretch. It looked a little strange, Boghosian admitted, but the flavors totally worked.

"It's been a huge hit," Boghosian said of the $7.95 sandwich. "We make it fresh there in house, every day, and the doughnuts are freshly picked up, every day."

"The Krispy Kreme doughnut corporation, the corporate entity, has absolutely nothing to do with a Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe sandwich."

There's no official nutritional data for Boghosian's creation, of course. But according to Krispy Kreme's website, a single glazed yeast doughnut has 200 calories and 12 grams of fat, and nutrition calculators like Myfitnesspal.com put a home-made Hunt's Manwich-type sloppy joe at about 300 calories and 7 grams of fat. So the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe hybrid probably clocks in at about 500 calories, and 19 or so grams of fat; the sprinkle of cheddar cheese on top would add another 28 calories.

It's an evolution going on in sandwich making here, even at home. It went from bread to bread-like buns to whole wheat breads & buns, tortillas & other flat breads, croissants, bagels, thin sliced breads & bagels, pretzel breads and now - donuts.

I'm not much on evolution.

It's certainly an evolution upwards in the carb & calorie count.
