I Feel Bad About Everything I Ever Said About Donuts…
June 4, 2010: NATIONAL DONUT DAY.
National Donut Day? Are you kidding me? That's right, and to celebrate the occasion, today Dunkin' Donuts was giving away one free donut with your coffee purchase.
Question: Have you any idea how many calories are in one glazed donut? Answer: A few hundred or so (unless it's a diet donut - really, diet!, like Krispy Kreme Low Trans donuts) . That may not seem like alot - depending on how many daily calories you consume - but just one Dunkin' Donuts Glazed Cake Stick, containing 340 calories, consists of 9 grams of saturated fat, 20 grams of regular ole' fat, 300 mg of sodium, and 20 grams of sugar. More than half the donut is pure fat.
If you must have your daily donut, you may take comfort in the fact that the same Glazed Cake Stick also contains 1 whopping gram of fiber! Still, you may want to have a few prunes with that breakfast.
I wonder if Dunkin' Donuts can give enough of these away?
