Discovery of the Week: Crö-Dough/Cronut

This week’s Discovery is food related!

For those of you not in the know, there is a recent food creation called a “Cronut,” which is a hybrid croissant-doughnut. It is as amazing as it sounds.

Glorious, isn't it?

Glorious, isn’t it?

There’s a bakery near where I work that sells “Crö-Doughs.” There are some copyright issues with the name (the original baker, Dominique Ansel of Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City trademarked the name) so all the imitations have had to be very creative with their names but it’s the same basic idea: doughnut shape with croissant inside. 3 Square Bakery on Abbot Kinney in Venice, CA has named theirs Crö-Doughs. And it is amazing! I have tried all three flavors (vanilla, nutella, and raspberry), and it looks like I am officially addicted (by the way, the nutella one is the best, though the others are excellent as well).

First bite. Mmmm

I’m not a big foodie but sweets are kind of my weakness. I had to try macaroons when I found out there was a place that sold them nearby, and any new cupcake place needs to be explored. So, when I heard that these Crö-Doughs were close, I immediately set out to try one. I’m not going to say they are a must for everyone but if you’re dying to try them, and can make it out to Venice one weekend, they are worth it. Then again I drive over 30 miles to work everyday so my perception of time and distance may be different than other people’s.

Thanks again for visiting and I’ll see you around!
