The Dausage claims to be "the original doughnut-sausage hybrid," leading me to wonder if the creator of the Dausage actually knows what a doughnut is.
Is this picture of a delicious jam-filled sausage, or the dissection of bizarre new thick-skinned worm? I could go either way. (via Dausage)
The Dausage is a new doughnut-sausage hybrid that's trying to get that sweet sweet Kickstarter money. Except that it's not really a doughnut-sausage hybrid. It's a jelly-filled sausage that's wearing the oh-so-clicky marketing mask of a doughnut.
If you think I'm being too harsh on a fad food, let me ask you this: what makes a doughnut a doughnut? I'm pretty sure it's the... well, dough. If being filled with jelly is what made a doughnut a doughnut, anything filled with jelly would be a doughnut. I mean, the sausage filled with jelly wouldn't be a sausage at all by that definition, it would simply be a doughnut. Hell, that hideous breakfast corn dog, the Jimmy Dean Sausage & Pancake on a Stick, is closer to being a doughnut-sausage hybrid than the Dausage is.
How can this both include the "sweetest" strawberry jam and be low in sugar?
Not that a jelly-filled sausage is a bad thing! In fact, it sounds like an awesome thing. One of the best things about breakfast is when you can dip a sausage in something sweet, like some maple syrup or jam. And meat in general is delicious when paired with a sweet sauce. But that still doesn't make it close to a doughnut.
I don't want to make too much fun of the Dausage, though. Like the Cronut, the KFC Double Down, and so many other attention-grabbing stunt foods before it, the Dausage will probably make a splash and then fade. Then again, if they start promoting it as a jam-filled sausage... well, that seems like an idea with some staying power.
