Dunkin Donuts to Buy, Close Glazed and Infused

7022232451_726d8746aa_m.jpgIt's lights out for a culinary trendsetter. Local doughnut chain Glazed and Infused, which opened to much fanfare last year with their high-end apple fritters and red velvet cake doughnuts, has reportedly been bought by retailer Dunkin' Donuts; an unnamed source close to the deal says that the Canton, Mass.-based company plans to replace Glazed and Infused's multiple locations with--what else?--a Dunkin' Donuts. A spokesperson for the national chain declined to confirm the sale, but did boast that "an old-fashioned donut from Dunkin' is just as good as anything made with expensive ingredients like with Valrhona chocolate or Madagascar vanilla beans any day. No one notices the difference, trust me."

UPDATE: If it wasn't clear from the link above, this is an April Fool's joke. Glazed and Infused is open and ready for your order of delicious gourmet donuts.
