Don't Judge: We Want To Try This Spam & Eggs Sandwich On Knock-Off Cronuts
Guys, the folks at DK's Donut & Bakery in Santa Monica have released their own Spam, fried eggs and cheese sandwich that rests between two Cronut-like buns. They've dubbed it "The World's First Spam O-NUT." ("O-NUT" is what the donut shop calls their croissant-donut mashup, probably because "Cronut" is already trademarked.)
LAist spotted this immaculate Hawaiian-inspired creation on their Instagram account today. Now, we understand that Spam isn't for everyone, but don't judge us because we kind of want to try it. Spam is our guilty pleasure.
DK's Donuts & Bakery is located at 1614 Santa Monica Blvd., Santa Monica, (310) 829-2512. It's open 24 hours. The Spam O-NUT costs $4.50.
