Saturday, September 28, 2019: CroNut Surprise
Oct 25th, 2019 by Katekoster

Sorry  that we haven’t posted for a while: school started and we are both playing varsity soccer so it’s been tough.  So for a surprise and treat this weekend (when I (MAX) didn’t have a game), I decided to get up super early and go to Dominque Ansel Bakery in Soho, NY,  to try the infamous “Cronut”: half croissant/half donut.  (The line was insane, but I got up so early I was first in line.)  I also bought a variety of other treats in case we didn’t like the cronuts.  First, I do want to congratulate Dominque Ansel on the atmosphere and packaging: they put on a good show  — I mean look at this packaging!  It opens up like a flower!

However, frankly, I am not (nor were the rest of my family) huge fans of the cronut. Apparently they change the color, frosting and filling every month? And this month’s was purple frosting with a grape filling:

It just didn’t work for us, super sweet.  (Mom scraped off the purple frosting and ate some of the pastry, but I think she was just trying to make me feel good).  I also bought frozen s’mores which looked amazing! But again way too sweet (and we like sweet things).

Fortunately I bought a lot of other things, including an apple puff pastry tart and some sort of nutella twist/circle thing.  Those were delicious! And the staff there were super nice.  Definitely worth visting, but maybe not just for the cronut.
