6164...Cronuts: This Year's Food Trend

You read it here first coz I read it first on NBC's  The cronut is the faddiest of the faddiest foods in New York City.  Made at the Dominique Ansel Bakery in SoHo this is Mr. Ansel's brain flash of taking a croissant and a donut and marrying them.

A cronut, a croissant-doughnut hybrid, the brain child of French pastry chef Dominique Ansel, sits on a plate at Ansel's bakery shop in New York on Ju...

How hot a trend is this?  Scalpers, baby, scalpers.  "The third-party service, Premium Cronut Delivery, which is not affiliated with the bakery, charges a whopping $100 for delivering a single Cronut, $200 for two, or $3,000 for 10 of the pastries. At the bakery, Cronuts sell for $5 each."

Just a matter of time before Tim Horton's rolls these guys out, eh?
