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!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
