Cronuts! Donuts made out of croissants! This summer, New York City has gone cuckoo for cronuts. The picture you are looking at is of the line of people outside of Dominque Ansel’s bakery waiting for cronuts, and it was taken at 6:45 this morning. People scalp cronuts on Craigslist, and offer sex in exchange for them. It’s a whole THING. They finally made it into the Hollywood Reporter today, which asks if cronuts have the enduring power of the mighty cupcake. Fun question. Powerful and important question. The Hollywood Reporter is truly the paper of record for Hollywood because the article includes this observation: “Cronuts are hardly the first food craze, as anyone who has swirled a fondue fork in the ’70s will tell you, but they are in many respects a unique phenomenon.” CRONUTS ARE HARDLY THE FIRST FOOD CRAZE, IT TURNS OUT. The question now, though, is not whether or not this is the first food craze because I just asked someone who had twirled a fondue fork in the ’70s and they said that it wasn’t, but rather who will play the lead cronut in the movie about cronuts*?! Kristen Bell? Jaden Smith? Justin Theroux? Gabourey Sidibe? WHO?!
