Krispy Kreme has a new offering: a glazed, whole-wheat doughnut. Billed as "an alternative for health-conscious consumers," it weighs in at 180 calories. Of course that's if you eat only one.


And after those workplace worries and tensions in global stock markets, we end today's business news on a slightly sweeter note. Our last word comes from Krispy Kreme. The donut maker has a new offering: a whole-wheat donut. The Krispy Kreme whole-wheat glazed donut is billed as, quote, "An alternative for health-conscious consumers." And the company emphasizes it's only 180 calories. Of course, that's if you eat only one.

This is MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.
