Cronuts

cookie8July 17, 2013

So, there is a "new kid in town" in New York called the cronut. People are lining up at 3-4 in the morning to hopefully get one. I don't know, I don't think there is anything that good that it would warrant me waking up at 2 am, driving there and then standing in line. Anyone hear of them? Anyone tried them? Just curious. Is there anything you would stand in line for hours for (food wise). I don't think there is for me - unless we were suddenly rationing food but not for something that is fad like.

Ha, yeah, NY is funny that way. I'm a NewYorker and i don't stand in lines. I'd rather eat glass, lol. I think someone in Texas is making a 'dosant'.
I'm sure it is delish. Years ago i had a dark chocolate french toast croissant. Memorable.
With bacon. But would not wait in line...
I'm guessing most of those people waiting are underpaid assistants.

Yes, I've seen them marketed here too. A local boutique ice cream parlor is offering them as ice cream sandwiches. I won't be trying them. I'm not a fan of donuts, and I certainly don't want more high fat/ carb choices.

Hmmm, maybe, this is an opening for Paula's comeback?? :) Could be filled with mac 'n cheese.

Even DD has gotten into the act down under.

Ha ha, scalpers? Wow. Funny, I came across cronuts on a gluten free website.
