CNN – Krispy Kreme introduces glazed doughnut frozen beverage

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.


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.

Somehow, I don’t think people are going to Krispy Kreme to lose weight! Although, frankly, for $3.99, I’d rather have a half dozen or so doughnuts.
