Krispy Kreme introduces drinkable glazed doughnut.

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.

Customers can also add coffee to the kreme and double chocolate.
Not sure where to go with this one.
  1. Drinkable fried dough.
  2. Add coffee to it
  3. "it's like having our coffee and glazed doughnut swirled in your cup!"

But WHY? And WHO? And WHAT does it say of this country? Have we no shame?

So many levels. So many readings. And maybe not. Maybe it is just a new drink in the market and not the symbolic interpretation of the American Culture.

Lost my direction but am sure of the destination: "CNNMoney notes that a 12-ounce cup of Original Kreme has 440 calories and 70 grams of carbs. A single Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut has 220 calories and 22 grams of carbs. I currently have 44 ounces of vomit in my mouth."
