Dunkin Donuts trying “healthier”

This can’t end well, can it? I haven’t eaten at a Burger King since they screwed up their french fries by switching oils. Can this go better? I hope so. I like those Munchkins. (Yes, I’m a horrible horrible diabetic.)

News: Dunkin’ Donuts going free of trans fat | dunkin, trans, fat, doughnut, chain – OCRegister.com

Dunkin’ Donuts, the food-on-the-go chain whose name celebrates a treat that’s symbolic of unhealthy eating, is trying to refresh its image by largely eliminating trans fat across its menu, Homer Simpson be damned. Dunkin’ planned to announce Monday that it has developed an alternative cooking oil and reformulated more than 50 menu items – doughnuts included. The Canton, Mass.-based chain says its menu will be “zero grams trans fat” by Oct. 15 across its 5,400 U.S. restaurants in 34 states.

    Hmm…not sure what to think of this one. I will definitely have to try to see how they are.

    Whats the point? A donut is still mainly white flour and sugar. It won’t matter if you clean up the oil. I don’t think people go to Dunkin Donuts thinking, gee, I hope they serve trans fat free products!

    On a positive note, the food industry now knows that it can’t get away with dangerous and cheap filler anymore. And I know a thing or two about this industry because I have worked for a chain for the last 6 years.
