Overrated: Cronut Knock-Offs
Dominique Ansel’s deep-fried croissant made to look like a donut moved swiftly from New York across the country. As the lines grew longer in Manhattan, every pastry chef and donut maker tried to copy it. Most of the time, however, the clever names they came up with - the name Cronut is trademarked - were better than the end result. Done right, they’re delicious. Done just because someone jumped on the bandwagon? Not so much.
