The Cronut is a mythical creature that you have to wait a ridiculous amount of time for in NYC, regardless of how you feel about both croissants and donuts. You could be their biggest fan and the wait in line would STILL probably not be worth it! Ha!
That's why Dunkin Donuts is here to save the day — if you don't live in the U.S., that is! They have unveiled two different takes on the pastry, which you can't get here! You CAN get the New York Pie Donut in South Korea, though, and the Donut Croissant (less creative name, obvi) in Manila! That one comes in TWO flavors, Apple Cinnamon and Choco Almond (above).
The thing is… because both products are so new, there are STILL lines out the door for Dunkin Donuts, and they have a two-per limit for customers!
The insanity won't last, though, and we expect everything to even out and eventually find its way to the USofA, where our cronut dreams will finally come true without us having to go to NYC and waste time in a line!
Ha! We REALLY want to try one!
