Drinkable Donut

You know, I like Krispy Kreme. A lot. But their latest idea… it stinks.

The concept is simple: let’s make a drinkable donut. After all, it’s worked really well for fruit (smoothies) and, uh, cake, I guess. But the drinkable Original Glazed frozen blend is a ridiculous idea. And while I’m not counting calories, I admit I have a hard time envisioning blowing 710 calories on this thing. A regular KK donut has about 240.

And besides, what situation are you going to be in when you want a cold, donut-flavored drink? Really.

I bet it took KK years to come up with this. Here’s another idea: how about a donut with coffee in it? Hot, steaming coffee that drips out when you bite in it. No dunking! Yum!

It tastes a little bit like bad butterscotch and both times I've had it there was something like tiny slivers of plastic suspended in the mixture. You're right: it's a loser. Why did I need two tests to confirm that?

Well, you had to be sure, Robert. You had to make sure you didn't miss something the first time.

Yeah, that's right. I mean, the double chocolate malt drink has done me right so many times. Why could the donut-flavored one be as kind?

A drinkable donut, you got to be f***ing kidding!
