When the Honey Dew Donuts chain location at the Quincy, Mass., YMCA location opens, according to a report today from the Associated Press, one key product will be missing from the menu: Doughnuts.

The Patriot Ledger reports that the one and only store in the Honey Dew Donuts chain to grace the streets of Quincy will be allowed by the city’s licensing board to set up shop inside the new $30 million YMCA facility, as long as they don’t bring the doughnuts.

Sara Trubian, spokesperson for the South Shore YMCA, told the news outlet that the Honey Dew Donuts location will open sometime within the next few weeks on the first floor of the facility, and will cater to the organization’s physical fitness initiatives.

“It’s definitely tailored to the healthy lifestyle the Y supports,” Trubiano said.

The doughnut shop will instead sell coffee, salads, sandwiches, yogurt, fruit cups, smoothies, and low-fat muffins –– the latter containing more sugar and calories than most of Honey Dew’s doughnuts though also containing more fiber and protein, according to the report.

All of the menu items must be approved by the YMCA.
