Cronut Craze

There is something fascinating about the cronut craze.  Whenever we travel and see a food line, I always feel the need to get in on it.  Waiting for hours is not in my vocabulary anymore but you have to love that people are so food obsessed that their desire to taste the latest and greatest, go to the latest and greatest restaurant, etc is very much a sign of the times.   Just a side note, my sophomore year I waited 24 hours in line to get a Peoples Express ticket going from Boston to NYC for $9.

Had to get in on the craze and taste the cronut.  Admittingly I pulled a few strings so I did not have to stand in the long line.

There are a few different lines.  One for other items and coffee.  BTW, there are plenty of delicious items at Dominique Ansel besides the coveted cronut.  There is the outdoor line and the indoor line for the cronut.  If anything there are people everywhere and the bakery is very long and narrow.  I give huge kudos to the staff who seems to be enjoying the insanity. 

Here is our box.  Needless to say we were very psyched. 

Our beautiful cronuts.  This months flavor is coconut cream with a sugar/cinnamon topping.  They are pretty delicious.  Light and airy. 

Just the right amount of filling.  Sweet but not too sweet. 

Not a crumb left.  MIght have to return for the flavor next month.
