In case you didn't get your fill of gut busting food at the L.A. County Fair, never fear. Currywurst is introducing a Frankenfood that'll do the job. It's no cronut, but it appears to be equally as unhealthy. It's called a Donut Dog. And it sounds dangerous.

This crazy, crazy junk food is made up of a warm Long John Donut bun topped with Chicago's finest Vienna Hot Dog, house made sweet and spicy mustard, and your choice of caramelized onion or fresh sauerkraut.

The Fairfax shop will be launching the Donut Dog next week.

Hopefully it doesn't get people sick like Toronto's cronut burgers. That was a mess.
