The latest fad in the bakery world is the cronut. It is a cross between a doughnut and a croissant We have a local bakery, The 'Good Butter' who has just celebrated their 'Grand Opening' several weeks ago. Now, I do not need an excuse to satisfy my sweet tooth but when you dangle that carrot of bacon, look out, because here I come. The bacon maple cronut was listed on the menu on the 'Good Butter' website. When we visited they were sold out. I was disappointed temporarily because they have plenty of other treats to sample. We sampled this sweet pastry bar that had a shortbread crust, chocolate fudge middle layer and was topped with sweet pecan toffee like spread. This was fantastic.
The good people at 'Good Butter' promised to message me and set aside a bacon, maple cronut for this Mad Meat Genius the next time they were made. I received the announcement and borrowed the 'Racing Honda' to make haste to my sweet destination. The cronut was brought home and sampled. I personaly do not see what the hub-bub is all about. It was decent enough. Of course I love bacon but the combination of doughnut and croissant is just an abomination of nature. Leave the bacon for deodorant, floss, toothpaste, soda, peanut brittle, and etc Have a doughnut or a croissant separately.. I will stick to the other treats in the future.
