    Cronuts - You know you want one!

    But do you want them enough to pay over $20 each? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3389694.html

    I'm just hoping the bacon on dessert fad goes away.

    I walk past this bakery every Friday on my way to my part-time job, but I can't say that the idea of a cronut appeals to me. Their eclairs though - yum.

    Those don't even look good. Give me a Krispy Kreme any day. Or some maple donuts from Donut Den, a little local shop...hands down THE BEST donuts I have ever eaten.

    I don't like Croissant and I don't like Donuts, so Cronuts don't appeal to me

    I do, however, understand the queuing for novelty items part

    In general, I don't like sweets so I'm pretty sure I don't want one.

    Well, that article was worth it just for the pleasure of being able to read the term "cronut scalpers."

    I'd be curious enough to give them a try, but I wouldn't line up for more than 5 minutes, and I sure as heck wouldn't pay more than about $4 for one.

    I could fund a new pair of skates pretty quickly with cronut scalping. I imagine I could make a knock off and scalp those.....

    I will take a Zabar's chocolate croissant, thanks.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I could feel my arteries closing up just looking at the picture. No way would I spend even $5 for this.

    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    I hope she paid $20 for each one. That sort of stupidity deserves to be punished.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    I would rather eat an almond croissant from the local French bakery or a custard-filled Krispy Kreme.

    I remember when Krispy Kreme first opened in a mega-strip mall in Issaquah, Washington. It was in a complex with a Home Depot and a big grocery store. There were two+ hour lines to get donuts, and the police had to direct traffic, which was blocking access in and out of the parking lot. At least there isn't a big car jam-up for cronuts.

    It is NYC. Isn't the big car jam-up just anywhere and everywhere? Last month, it took me an hour and a half and $40 to get from 100th and Riverside to Penn Station in a cab on a Sunday. It was pouring, and I had gone shopping at Zabars so I had a suitcase and some bags, and I couldn't get out and walk/subway. $40 well spent not to get soaked while lugging bags.
