After watching the Cronut craze and wanting to try one for the last few years, I finally decided to go get some. I work from home and set my own hours, so why not? I preordered them two weeks ago, worked late night on a project, and took the morning to go pick some up and take them to my wife’s office.
The verdict: They were delicious. The May flavor is Raspberry Earl Grey.
I’ve had a few knockoffs, but I’m glad I tried the original. Dominque Ansel Bakery has incredible standards and hits the mark every time. The dough was crispy on the outside, soft and flakey on the inside, and the filling was creamy and rich.
I’m glad I picked some up via preorder and avoided the lines. I got to check this off the NYC list. I probably won’t do it again because they weren’t good enough to justify the effort a second time, but damn they were good the first time.
