Cronut: The New Pastry Craze Takes NY

Dominique Ansel’s cronuts — a combination of croissant and donut — are now being scalped on Craigslist. With only 200 cronuts made per day, and a line 30-people deep before Ansel’s Manhattan bakery, located in SoHo, even opens its doors, the $5 croissant-donut hybrid has become a hot commodity for sweet-toothed New Yorkers – and opportunists are taking note. Selling on Craigslist for up to eight times their original retail price, cronuts are now available for delivery by scalpers in Manhattan ($20 each), Queens ($30 each), and Brooklyn $40 each). Watch video of this morning’s line after the jump.
