The “Cronut” June 8, 2013 | It’s no secret that I’m a foodie and that my inner fat kid usually always gets her way (note the strawberry cupcake with cream cheese frosting that I had for dessert tonight), but this time my craving is so exclusive that I’ll have to fly to NYC and wait in a line that starts forming at 6 a.m. Ladies, have you heard about the Cronut that’s all the rage in Manhattan?! It’s a super yummy delicious (in my head it is at least) pastry that’s a cross between a croissant and a donut. Two of my most favorite junky foods in one little piece of heaven…please quit toying with my emotions. Anyway, you can only get these little pieces of gold at Dominique Ansel’s SoHo bakery in NYC. They have become so popular that the line starts forming at their door at 6a.m. and you are only allowed 6 per person. But get this…people actually wait in line, buy them, and then SCALP them. Shut up! Cronut scalping. Sad thing is I would probably be one of the suckers who fell for it. My mouth has been watering for one for days now. NYC friends, please tell us are they as good as they look?! So tell me ladies, is the Cronut the new cupcake? Happy Saturday, Ya’ll!
