Cronuts are the New Donuts

February 20, 2014

 

Just when I thought I had seen, heard, and tasted it all -- the half donut half croissant hybrid, the Cronut arrives. The internet has been going mad today over the Cronut itself, the price of the Cronut, fraudulent Cronuts and even Cronut scalpers.  

 

Say "Cronut" 4 times fast...

 

 

The delicious pastry, concocted in the mind of pastry chef Dominique Ansel, owner of New York City's Dominique Ansel Bakery helped Ansel receive a spot in the "Top 10 Pastry Chefs in the USA" by Dessert Professional Magazine.

While Ansel describes the taste of a Cronut as something close to that of a "crepe cake" her customers and enthusiasts say it's something closer to a cruller.

 

But why so special? What's goes into all those layers?

Currently, NYC is the only place where the treat can be found and they are priced at 5 bucks each. For a single pastry, the price may seem a bit exorbitant, but if the line that you will run into on any given morning that stretches around the block of the Dominique Ansel Bakery is any indication to it's taste -- I'd have to think it's worth the money.
