Goodbye Healthy Donuts

There’s a lot of foods out there that a person can make moderately healthy with just a little bit of work, and a little bit of creative thinking. People have turned cauliflower into a form of bread. Others have turned zucchini into a form of pizza crust. It seems that there are numerous ways to get around the unhealthiness of an item, and shift it into a much healthier form. This is especially true of desserts. There are a lot of low fat and low calorie items such as ice cream, and cookies that people can purchase and actually enjoy. But, when it comes to eating one type of dessert, it seems that it’s almost meant to be bad for you.

I’m talking about donuts. Donuts are disgustingly good and come in a variety of flavors. There’s ones that are covered in chocolate, others that are stuffed with jelly, and lots that have sprinkles coating the top! They’re glazed, frosted, and overall pretty terrible for you. People don’t eat donuts for the health factor. One company apparently thought they did, and now they’re suffering.

According to GrubStreet, Holey Donuts has gone bankrupt. They were selling low fat low calorie donuts. But, by taking away all that stuff is it still a donut? More importantly is it still good? Apparently not. The business did not do well and it has shut its doors. To add insult to injury, the owners are facing lots of problems now. Folks at Skout reported to the Huffington Post that they signed a 10 year lease, and haven’t been able to pay rent. Well it looks like they learned their lesson when it comes to trying to turn a dessert food into something good for someone.
