NEW YORK -

Two streaming services are reuniting. Hulu and Spotify are launching a new $13 per month subscription plan exclusively for Spotify premium members in the U.S. It includes a full Spotify subscription and access to Hulu's entry-level on-demand service. This comes after Hulu and Spotify launched a successful joint plan for students in September.   

Former Speaker of the House John Boehner is joining the advisory board of a marijuana firm. Acreage Holdings cultivates, processes and dispenses cannabis in 11 states. The news comes nine years after the Republican said he was opposed to legalization.

Krispy Kreme launched three special edition doughnuts inspired by popular cookies: Oreo, Chips Ahoy and Nutter Butter. The doughnuts are topped and stuffed with pieces of their respective cookie. The trio will only be offered for a limited time in select locations.
