Remember when cronuts first hit the dessert scene a few years back and literally everyone on the planet was clamoring to try out the half-donut half-croissant creation? There was no line too long to wait on, when the promise of a cronut was the final outcome.
Yeah, so I wasn’t really into it. I’ve never been much of a sweets person, (to the complete surprise/dismay/disgust of so many people I’ve come across) and as far as pastries go, croissants have always been too dry for my tastes.
Then a co-worker brought in a batch of Crumbs Bakery’s version of the treat into the office. While everyone else gushed over the gooey goodness of each cronut, I tried not to be grossed out about how a tiny lump of bread could single-handedly be both the greasiest and sweetest thing I’ve ever tasted at the same time. I wasn’t into it.
But now, I had the opportunity to try out Dunkin Donuts‘ croissant donut version, and I was hooked. I finally got what everyone was talking about, and I was only like, two years late to the party. Less sugary than your traditional donut but flakier than your average croissant, it’s a perfect treat to accompany a warm mug of tea. And you don’t even have to wait in crazy lines to get your hands on one – most of the time.
So now I ask the world: have you had any luck sampling the different cronuts of the world? Have you any advice for a newbie like me? Drop us a comment below!
I have yet to try any cronut. I’ve always been turned off by how sweet it looks, but now you’ve got me reconsidering it!
I have tried just a bite of the Crumbs version and found it very greasy. Not for me.
