I saw this story this morning and it made me intantly gag. The thought of drinking a donut makes me ill. Although I would suspect this is a poor business decision, I'm sure they'll sell millions of them and prove me wrong. It's a good thing that stomach by-pass surgeries are being covered by more and more insurance companies, now we can all drink donuts!!!

 

I'm gonna go get sick now,...

12 oz = 440 calories

16 oz = 590

20 oz = 740

 

:shock:

And I thought McGriddles sound disgusting! A 16 0z Original Kreme shake even beats out the McGriddle in calories. Here's the numbers for a sausage, egg and cheese McGriddle and the percent of daily allowance in parentheses from their website:

 

CALORIES: 550 (-)

FAT: 33 G. (51%)

SATURATED FAT: 11 G. (55%)

CHOLESTEROL: 260 MG. (86%)

SODIUM: 1290 MG. (54%)

CARBOHYDRATES: 43 G. (14%)

DIETARY FIBER: 1 G. (5%)

PROTEIN: 20 G (-)

 

I assume that the shake doesn't have the McGriddle's punch of saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, though.

Mmmmmmmm....now I have a cool refreshing drink to go WITH my McGriddle! J/K I am a pretty healthy eater.

 

Did anybody ever see that Swanson's frozen breakfast meal that had like 2 days worth of fat, chloestorol, sodium, etc. in the single meal? I like how the box proclaimed "over 1 pound of food!" or something like that.

Ya know, it's not like it really has a donut in there. It's just another Frappacino imitation.

 

Exactly. It's a frozen drink that tastes like their original donut. What's the big deal? If Dunkin Donuts came out with a frozen drink that tasted like their glazed chocolate donuts, I'd try it!

No, see... I have a problem with the notion of simulacra in the food industry.

 

If I want a donut, I'll eat a freakin' donut. If I want an iced latte, I'll drink a freakin' iced latte, not some obscene freakshow of sugar and fat creme.

Well that's your right, of course, but it would be a sad world without orange or grape soda, root beer-flavored hard candies, green apple jolly ranchers, and coffee ice cream. :P

Eww, eww, eww, and eww. :P

This from the person who used to sit down with a tube of cookie dough and a spoon....

(pass a spoon over here too)

Mmmm ... cookie dough ... btw, I found out last week that raw oatmeal raisin cookie dough does not compare to chocolate chip ..... oops, note to self, read packaging carefully.

 

Hey Zathras ... is 30 creaping up on you yet ... How's Jana holding up, mere days from the cliff?

Eh? Whats that Kujeaux? I didn't have my ear horn in position because I was viewing the new stereo-opticons from the Worlds Fair... (woo woo that Little Egypt sure is a looker showing her calves and all.... now eh where was I). Oh yeah donuts.... let me turn down the new Kay Kayser album while i'm at it.

 

Well back in my day we didn't have all this high tech modernizing liquid-donutifcation. We had water with sugar in it. Half the time it didn't have sugar. or water for that matter. and the glass was chipped!
