Krispy Kreme Fighting Back With Doughnut Drinks?

As Krispy Kreme stock has dropped 45 percent this year, the North Carolina-based company announced the transformation of its original glazed doughnut into a new frozen beverage for summer. The chain introduced a new line of frozen drinks, including frozen original kreme--a drinkable version of the company's signature doughnut. Customers can also add coffee to the concoction.

The drinks are available in 3 cup sizes, 12-, 16- and 20-ounces and the suggested retail prices vary from $2.79 for the small size drink to $3.99 for the large size. The 20-ounce frozen original kreme drink tops out at 730 calories and 117 grams of carbs!

Whether it's a drink or solid food, doughnuts are one of the worst foods you can eat. It's too bad that so many Americans view doughnuts as a breakfast food as, nutritionally speaking, eating a doughnut is one of the worst ways to start off your day. It will throw off your blood sugar and won't stay with you so you'll be hungry again soon.
