The Cronut Craze

by DePaolo Equine Concepts

Today is National Doughnut Day!  We frequently have doughnuts delivered to the office (by an un-named source…starts with a Lynd and ends in a Sey).  Typically the treats are from a local North Texas bakery and end up getting picked over after a few days with the last few bit being resurrected in the microwave and then finally discarded in the trash.  I guarantee you if the cronut craze that is hitting Manhattan were to sweep all the way to Pilot Point, TX, those would surely NOT go to waste.

A cronut is a croissant-doughnut hybrid and the brain child of French Chef Dominique Ansel.  People start lining up two hours before the doors open at this SoHo pastry shop with some people even buying the tasty treats and re-selling them on the black market for a profit.  The going rate is $40 on Craigs List – roughly 8 times the actual price at Ansel’s shop.

This month’s featured flavor is lemon maple.  YES PLEASE!!!
