While we were celebrating National Donut Day by eating Chewbacca-shaped maple bars, John Clarkson, enterprising owner of Mister Eaters fish and chips shop in Preston, Lancashire, England was celebrating by stuffing traditional jam donuts with thick slices of Spam, dipping them in batter and then tossing them back into the deep fryer until they turned a mouthwatering golden brown.
Mr Clarkson said: “I have always loved Spam - it’s bloody beautiful and I don’t think it gets enough recognition. The idea for the Spam doughnuts just came out of nowhere and I liked how jam sounded with spam and thought I could give it a try.
I am not even a fan of doughnuts to be honest. They are so easy to make and taste stunning, the saltiness of the meat really goes with the sweet dough, sort of like ham and pineapple really.”
We’re pleased to report that Clarkson isn’t the only person who enjoys his Spam donuts. According to him they’ve been flying off the shelves for a mere £2.50 ($4.20) a piece.
It never fails. Every time the hard-working Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys thinks things have grown quiet enough to step out and get a bloody marys for themselves, along comes an even bigger one. Technically this monstrosity is a Bloody Caesar, a Canadian variation on the classic Bloody Mary.
It was created by the folks at Score on Davie, a bar located in Vancouver, BC. They call it the ‘Checkmate Caesar' and its gargantuan garnish features a whole roast chicken, a bacon cheeseburger, a pulled pork mac & cheese hot dog (just pause and consider this hot dog for a moment, because, wow), chicken wings, a slider, one triumphant pickle spear, roasted veggies (to make it healthy) and a whipped cream-covered brownie (for dessert).

Is it a Wonut? Is it a Doffle? These gloriously deep-fried waffle-donut hybrids are made by the batter wizards at Chicago’s Waffles Cafe and we don’t care what they finally decide to call them, so long as we get to try each and every flavor. They may be Chicago’s answer to New York’s cronut and they’re a mouthwatering reason to forgo sleeping late in favor of getting up early and indulging our insatiable sweet tooth.
According to Waffles Cafe owner Alex Hernandez, each batch of wonuts can take up to two hours to make. They’re made using various flavors of a thicker version of the cafe’s signature waffle batter, which is first cooked to perfection in a waffle iron. The three-inch doffles are then deep-fried in vegetable shortening and finally dipped in a sugar, marshmallow, maple or chocolate glaze. But wait, they’re also served covered in an assortment of additional goodies such as sprinkles, chocolate shavings or candied orange peels.
They even made vivid green Shamrock Frosting Waffle Donuts for St. Patrick’s Day.

Pizza is pretty much always a good thing, but what sort of super awesome, cheese-packed, dream come true is this? Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza recently launched a new marketing campaign, entitled “Pizza Game Changers“, for which they are asking their customers to vote on what new items they’d most like to see on their summer menu.
Their promise is “If you like it, we will make it,” and the ideas currently on the virtual ballot include pizza mints, a gas-powered pizza cutter, pizza cheese clippers, the pizza pocket, pizza car fresheners, the pizza protector, the pizza beardkin, and the glorious pizza cake pictured here.
The six-layer pizza cake is currently in the lead, so we’re hopeful that this gloriously overindulgent pizza fantasy becomes a reality.
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) continues to amaze us with his awesomely overindulgent creations. His latest effort is this impressive tower of food called the Alphabet Sandwich. It’s a sandwich featuring 26 different toppings, each one starting with a different letter from the alphabet.
"Now, I know that sounds simple enough, but do you realize how difficult it is to find a food that starts with the letter X? To solve that issue I eventually settled on xylocarp, which is defined as “a hard, woody fruit that grows on trees,” or in other words, a coconut.
Here’s a complete list of every ingredient in the gloriously gluttonous Alphabet Sandwich:
Italian sausage patty
Krispy Kreme doughnut
Macaroni and cheese
Quest blanco dip
Nick from DudeFoods (previously featured here) is a bacon wizard. Everything he’s made using bacon has made our mouths water and this latest creation is no exception. Behold the dainty, decadent glory of Bacon Weave S’mores. They’re like traditional s’mores with one meaty exception: Instead of graham crackers, the melted chocolate and marshmallow are sandwiched between two heavenly pieces of woven bacon strips.
"I made each square the exact same size as half of a Hershey’s Chocolate bar, which as you can see from the photos ended up being three pieces of bacon by two pieces of bacon. Since I didn’t need full slices of bacon for the squares either I was able to create two complete squares from just five pieces of bacon by cutting each one in half first.
Since the chocolate and marshmallow melt so easily that if you make these you’ll want to make sure that your bacon weave squares are completely cooked before you add the two final ingredients. After adding the chocolate and marshmallow it was just a quick 30 seconds in the microwave until my Bacon Weave S’mores were ready to eat!”

Nick from DudeFoods, creator of outrageous edibles and Geyser of Awesome hero, (previously featured here) recently combined one of every single sandwich on the menu at a McDonalds in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. To create this awesome edible monstrosity, which he dubbed The McEverything, Nick made sure to include all of the breakfast sandwiches in addition to the regular lunch/dinnertime offerings. The towering feast cost $140.33.
"You see, I have a bucket list, but instead of things like sky diving, swimming with sharks or other death defying feats of adventure that you’d find on most typical bucket lists mine is completely food related. The number one thing on my list for two or three years now has been to make this sandwich, which I’ve dubbed the McEverything."
"After all 43 sandwiches were finished and sitting at my table I got to work putting the McEverything together. I originally anticipated it only being a couple of feet high, but as you can see from the pictures it ended up MUCH taller than that. I took a few photos along the way as well just so the whole thing wouldn’t be a total waste if ended up tumbling over onto the floor before I finished stacking all the sandwiches on top of one another. Oh, and if you’re wondering how I held the entire thing together the answer is bamboo skewers… lots and lots of bamboo skewers….”

We hope you’re hungry, because it’s time pay a visit to the Bureau of Brobdingnagian Burgers where we’ll take a look at what might just be the “World’s Single Most Expensive Fast Food Hamburger.”
Ordered by Beau Chevassus of Chevassus Studios, this edible monstrosity is a modified Jumbo Jack burger from Jack In The Box. Instead of one beef patty there are 20, along with lots of bacon (probably not enough, because is there really such a thing?), slices of every cheese on the menu, fried eggs, onion rings, ham, turkey, chicken patties, and sour dough buns - all topped with one of Jack In The Box’s signature antenna balls. Whew! The price for this 9,044 calorie meal was $38.23.
Here’s hoping that no one grew so delirious while consuming all of this meat, cheese, and fried goodness, that they ended up eating the antenna ball too.
Even though we’ve barely recovered from our most recent visit, it’s time to grab a bib and head back over to the Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys
Last week we posted about an amazingly over the top Bloody Mary created by Sarah Jayne Pickart at O’Davey’s Irish Pub in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Sarah works at O’Davey’s on the first Sunday of every month. The pub doesn’t open until 11am, but eager patrons start queueing outside as early as 8am in hopes of getting their eager hands on one of Sarah’s awesome creations.
"While there, she works up between 100 and 150 very insane Marys, each of which 1) gets loaded with more food than most people eat in a day, 2) follows a changing theme (next month’s is “Props to the Pig”), and 3) COSTS FIVE FRIGGIN’ DOLLARS. God bless you, Midwest.”
It seems that the folks over at Thrillist were so impressed with Sarah’s Milwaukee Brewer’s Bloody Mary that they challenged her to outdo herself, and boy did she ever succeed. Behold the glorious monstrosity that is the “”Wisconsinite Delight" Bloody Mary.
Here is a complete list of ingredients (It’s a doozy):
And remember, it only costs $5:
"…despite giving away a shopping cart for $5, thanks to the crowds, they make more money on the days Sarah’s making bloody magic than the days she’s not."
Sarah Jayne Pickart, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you!
If there’s a bloody mary out there that doesn’t pale in comparison to this one, we’d love to see it.

We’ve found a new addition for our collection of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys. This one comes with appetizers, lunch, snacks, nibbles, and more snacks. It’s the work of Midwestern food wizards at O’Davey’s Irish Pub located in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin.
This ultimate hangover cure is topped with an extensive beer chaser consisting of pop corn, bacon, peanuts, beans, sausage, pretzel, sliders, a pickle and (this is Wisconsin after all) a cracker and cheese curd. Plus a Brewers flag.
"That’s amazing. I’m coming to America just for these," a reader remarked in the Reddit forum.
An Australian commented: “As an Aussie, I can’t help but look at that and think… ‘Is this actually a thing??’ Are you serious? You can actually order that?”
It sure is. And it’s awesome. Just make sure you’ve got a few friends to share it with and some Tums on hand for later.
