Slocum's Joe was a pre-War coffee and donut company based in Malden. The company ran numerous coffee shops around the eastern United States and had a special of a large coffee and jelly donut for 30 dollars.
A staple of pre-War Bostonian and Appalachian fast foods, Slocum's focused on two things: Joe (coffee) and doughnuts. While their food was noted by some to exceed the daily recommended amount of carbohydrates and fat, Slocum's always tried to stay one step ahead of the competition, such as by trying to solve the problem of keeping coffee hot and doughnuts fresh.
Their answer was Slocum's Buzzbites, a delicious doughnut filled with hot coffee and chemically preserved to stay hot, which had a 90% chance of inflicting 3rd-degree burns on consumers. This lead to it being deemed too dangerous for distribution by authorities. The actual coffee was noted to be "stale, acidic rubbish," priced at 28 dollars.
