The cronut is taking America by storm but as yet it has not hit New Zealand shelves. What is a cronut you may ask??

A cronut is a mixture between a croissant and a donut and it is taking  the pastry world by storm.

The small pastry has the shape of a donut but the dough is very similar to croissant dough.

The cronut, was designed at the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York and is made up of layers of croissant dough that are deep fried and filled with vanilla cream.

Its insides are flaky and light and its shell is crispy and warm.

  1. whew…..i thought that someone changed the name coconut to cronut….just as long as no one doesn’t change the name of any island stuff then i’ll be all gudz!!!!!

  2. Mmm this artical made me hungry the only problem is is it looks realy fatty! 🙂

  3. this sounds awesome it just needs a little improvement like adding different vlavoured filling and you can choose home many layers you want but by the pointers they have now i think that this is going to take new zealand to a whole new level and i mean litterally 🙂 🙂

  4. OMG!(oh my god) those americans have gone OTT!(over the top) But i bet they would be RRY!(really really yummy)

  5. Those look very good! The problem is does the cronut taste good? How much would this tasty looking pastry cost exactly? I mean it is the same price as a normal pastry? The price of a donut plus the price of a croissant? Or does it cost more than that because it looks like a lot of effort goes into making that because of all the textures and deep frying and triple layered then it is rolled in icing sugar. Some people might think this looks like it contains too many ingredients and it is overkill. The name is not that creative because all it does is take two names split them in half then put them together and then you have a new name. I think the name could have been more attractive because ‘cronut’ does not sound that delicious. Over all I think that the Cronut is amazing!!!

  6. New Yorkers were in line since 3am in front of the cronut shop and the cronuts soon became outta stock… imagine how YUM would they be…

  7. Reading this now it’s not that much of a big deal.

    I love Cronuts and think they are an AWESOME invention!!!!!
