"The Cronut – the US pastry sensation that must cross the Atlantic."

Big American trends that I'm only hearing about because of a foreign news report.

Wait 'til they hear about deep-fried Twinkies.

UPDATE: Kringle.

There's a casino in downtown Vegas that still serves deep fried Twinkies!

"They do have an expiration date!" Zombieland

He could patent these as a new composition of matter.

I think that would make the donut too dense.

I heard through the grapevine how to make croissants in a big way BLAM like that and it changed my life.

But to say croissant you must block off your nose and say flatly as a brute within a non-brutish sentence so that it sticks out, "quaw-soo"

Don't tell Bloomberg.

Portmanteau Google alert?

Before it was a sensation, it was feeling waiting to become an idea in the cusp of popping into somebody's head and out the mouth.

Cronut Cusp.

Chip - that "Quaw-soo" vid was highly educational and enlightening.

After I eat all of those goodies, I'd need to be squeezed through that machine.

I understood that the "deep fried anything" trend started with a chip shop in Scotland discovering deep fried Mars bars.

Twinkies came later, a natural evolution on the path to the annual deep fried food contest held at the Texas State Fair each year.

Oh Lord Jesus, making your own bastard child of a doughnut and a croissant?

Ain't nobody got time for that!

Sorta funny that this is worldwide frenzy started in New York, fed by celebrity fans.

Naked Bob Dylan Robot says:

They'll deep-fry you when you're at the breakfast table
They'll deep-fry you when you are young and able
They'll deep-fry you when you're trying to make Cronuts
They'll deep-fry you and then they'll say good luck
It's as American as Mom's Apple Pie
Everybody must get deep-fried.

Hmmm.

Bob Dylan Robot might have used all the Good Stuff in yesterday's epic "At The Dog Walk Cafe..." Post.

Thank You Muchly to betamax3K for Deep-Fried Dylan!

True cronut connoisseurs insist that they should be paired w/ at least 32 oz. of Mountain Dew.

Someday, Britons will learn that New York City is not the same as "America".

Nor is California.

I eat them every time I go to Milwaukee. They have had them for years. And Europe and New York are just "discovering it". It doesn't exist I guess till it hits Paris and New York. Meh.
