    A Delaware minor league baseball team is taking ballpark food to the next sweet and savory level, but needs help coming up with a name.

    The Wilmington Blue Rocks, a Kansas City Royals affiliate that plays just south of Philadelphia, is introducing a "Donut Dog," and it's every bit as interesting as you might think.

    What's in this glazed menu item, you ask? It's a hot dog wrapped in a Krispy Kreme doughnut bun, topped with raspberry jelly and chunks of bacon. According to CSN Philly, If you don't like raspberry jelly, the team's FaceBook page says you can swap it out for mustard or ketchup.

    This potentially palatable creation does not yet have an official name, but that's where fans and viewers alike can chime in.

    On the Blue Rocks website, the team is hosting a contest to name the culinary creation. The winner will earn four tickets to Opening Night, a chance to throw out the first pitch at the game, and $50 to spend in concessions at the stadium. Five other finalists will receive tickets to a 2015 Blue Rocks game.

    But don't delay; the contest ends at noon on March 17. Voting on the six finalists' names will begin that day and run for a week.
