Are they worth the hype?
|$3.99 for a two-pack seems a bit steep but it’s a nice treat 🙂|
A short while ago we brought you THIS piece that Stew Leonard’s now has cronuts or as they dubbed them “Cro-Dos,” and a bit of history on the most sought after pastry in the present day.
So I’ll make this quick seeing how I cannot give a full review until I try more of the varieties at Stew’s (rumor is they have a chocolate cronut too) and when I can finally get my paws on and shove an entire cronut in my mouth at Dominique Ansel, the birthplace of the already legendary donut-croissant.
But what did I think?
|Out of the box and in its naked glory.|
Honestly, I was surprised. I expected something extremely sweet but what I got was a pleasantly chewy, croissant-like effect but with the butteryness calmed down by the donut batter. It was different from any donut I have ever tried but in a good way.
As far as sweetness is concerned, I would have liked more than the sugared exterior. I did see that someone on Twitter mentioned a custard filling or some type of glaze would go over well. I totally agree. Anything with glaze or custard is an instant hit, but Stew’s should keep their original version because with more types of cronuts or Cro-dos there are, we’re all better off.
Stay tuned to Stew Leonard’s on Facebook for more Cro-Do news, specials, and more!
