Liquid donuts - Don't waste calories chewing
    #2939627 - 07/29/04 10:04 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

http://money.cnn.com/2004/07/21/news/midcaps/krispy_kreme/

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Once the fried dough embodiment of hot and fresh, Krispy Kreme has transformed its original glazed doughnut into a new frozen beverage for summer.

The chain introduced a new line of frozen drinks Wednesday, including frozen original kreme -- a drinkable version of the company's signature doughnut -- raspberry, latte and double chocolate.


"We feel our expanded beverage offerings will provide tremendous growth opportunity for both the company and the Krispy Kreme brand," he added.


The drinks are available in 3 cup sizes -- 12-ounce, 16-ounce and 20-ounce -- and the suggested retail prices vary from $2.79 for the small size drink to $3.99 for the large size.

The Winston-Salem, N.C.-based company said it currently does not have plans to introduce low-carb versions of the new drinks.

This year Krispy Kreme's stock has fallen more than 45 percent, hurt by the growing popularity of the low-carb diet fad, and Wall Street's concerns about the company's aggressive pace of new store openings.

Krispy Kreme has now officially frightened me.

That's just sick.

But they're going to make a ton of cash when people get back to *needing* carbohydrates. :laugh:

I'd like to try it just to know what it's like, but that sounds a little too indulgent, if you ask me.


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein
"Fear is the great barrier to human growth." ~ Dr. Robert Monroe

The de-solidification of food! Some day, all our meals will come in little pills, and we'll drink our doughnuts through straws, as we race towards a condition of post-humanity: where we all begin to resemble the Speilberg's "grays," or worse yet, Michael Jackson -- our skin a diseased shade of gray and our faces in danger of collapsing in on themselves...

A liquid doughnut cannot have a hole; therefor, is it still a doughnut? What is it, that defines a doughnut on the platonic plane of ideals? Does a chair need four legs, does a doughnut need a hole? What is essential 'doughnut-ness?' Is a doughnut female and a twinky male? What is the half-life of a teenage queen?

Has anyone tried this yet? I'm dying to know what it's like.

Acid doesn't give you truths; it builds machines that push the envelope of perception. Whatever revelations came to me then have dissolved like skywriting. All I really know is that those few years saddled me with a faith in the redemptive potential of the imagination which, however flat, stale and unprofitable the world seems to me now, I cannot for the life of me shake.
