QUINCY, Mass. (AP) — A doughnut shop chain won't be selling doughnuts at a new Massachusetts location.

Quincy's licensing board this week approved a plan for Honey Dew Donuts to open a shop inside the city's new $30 million YMCA.

A spokeswoman for the Y tells The Patriot Ledger ( ) that because of the organization's emphasis on physical fitness, no doughnuts will be sold. The shop will sell coffee, low-fat muffins, salads, sandwiches, yogurt, fruit cups and smoothies. All menu items must be approved by the Y.

According to Honey Dew's website, its low-fat muffins contain more calories and sugar than many of its doughnuts.
