Signs Of The Apocalypse

Put on your Rapture boots, it’s the End Times:

Krispy Kreme, the company known for its glazed doughnuts, its chocolate iced glazed doughnuts and its glazed “kreme”-filled doughnuts, on Monday introduced a whole wheat doughnut.

In case anyone is wondering, it is glazed. And it has a caramel flavoring. The company called the new doughnut an alternative for health-conscious consumers, with 180 calories. The original glazed has 200 calories, according to the company’s Web site, and the glazed cream-filled weighs in at 340.

“The Krispy Kreme whole wheat glazed doughnut delivers the delicious taste that our customers have come to expect from us,” said Stan Parker, the company’s senior vice president of marketing.

I find the concept of a healthy doughnut simultaneously admirable and horrifying.

    Fear not for it will stay with you until the end of time.

    And the little donut shop I used to take my kids to offered whole wheat donuts 30 years ago. Of course, it was in Montgomery County, MD, and you could get almost there on bike paths.
