Busken Bakery is proud to introduce their latest innovation: the Lite-Hearted Donut.

The Lite-Hearted Donut is a heart-shaped glazed donut targeted to calorie-counting consumers. Each donut contains just 140 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, and zero trans fat and zero saturated fat. A normal Busken glazed donut contains 300 calories and 16 grams of fat.

That's nearly 85% less fat, less than half the calories, and the same great taste as the ever-popular original.

 “We are excited to finally be able to offer a reduced calorie donut that still offers all the great flavor of our original glazed donut,” commented Dan Busken, President of Busken Bakery, “Health fanatics can now indulge, guilt free, on one of our glazed donuts, and continue to enjoy our skinny cookies as well.”

Busken Bakery has offered low-calorie treats in the past, most notably, the Skinny Cookie, a half-the-fat, fewer-calorie cookie compared to the Busken Original Iced Cookie. Now a staple on bakery shelves and in customer mouths, Busken has sold 890,000 Skinny Cookies in just 3 years.

The Lite-Hearted Donut will be available at all 10 Busken Bakery locations, 135 United Dairy Farmers, and Remke-Bigg’s.
