It’s not every day you get to enjoy sloppy seconds. White Castle teamed up with Grammy-nominated hip-hop star Fat Joe to promote their sloppy Joe offerings. Castle’s Sloppy Joe trio includes the original Sloppy Joe Slider, the Smoky Joe Slider and, new this year, the Spicy Joe Slider.
White Castle will usher in the month of “Joenuary” by bringing back Cravers’ favorite comfort food — the Sloppy Joe Slider and the Smoky Joe Slider — along with two new items: the Spicy Joe Slider and Sloppy Fries.
White Castle is teaming up with Grammy-nominated hip-hop star and self-professed Slider lover Fat Joe to introduce the Spicy Joe Slider and Sloppy Fries and to celebrate Joenuary as a month dedicated to all things, Joe. Fat Joe and White Castle have all kinds of fun and surprises lined up, including Joe-inspired memes and trivia as well as original “joetry” (poetry) and “joekes” (jokes).
“Our Sloppy Joes are back, and that means it’s time to embrace the sloppy life,” said Jamie Richardson, vice president at White Castle. “We’re excited that Fat Joe is helping us announce the return of our Sloppy Joe and Smoky Joe Sliders and introduce our new Spicy Joe Slider and Sloppy Fries.”
As a Bronx native, Fat Joe grew up visiting his local White Castle.
“White Castle was a big part of my childhood,” Fat Joe said. “I always enjoyed eating their Sliders with my friends and family, so it’s a full-circle moment to partner with them all these years later in an unprecedented way. I’m excited to introduce new additions to the menu and share some other surprises so we can start the new year off right.”
The 99-cent Sloppy Joe Slider is a nod to the classic comfort food, only slider-sized. It’s made with lean ground beef, onions, tomatoes and bell peppers mixed with a sweet-and-tangy sauce. The Smoky Joe Slider is made the same way as the Sloppy Joe Slider except that it’s topped with smoked cheddar cheese and crispy onions.
The new Spicy Joe Slider turns up the heat a bit on the old classic. It’s the traditional Sloppy Joe Slider topped with a perfectly spicy slice of jalapeno cheese and jalapeno crisps. The new Sloppy Fries are White Castle’s signature crispy crinkle fries covered with ooey-gooey melted cheese and topped with the tangy Sloppy Joe sauce.
