Everyone has been talking about the Cronut. The demand, the limited supply. People line up for hours in the wee hours of the morning to get a taste of this doughnut-croissant hybrid. But you know, there's an easier way to get your hands on a Cronut. Order them online. Yup, and that's exactly what I did to get my hands on some Cronuts. It was fairly simple and I was successful twice out of the three times that I tried. Well, the first time, I didn't know I needed an active Paypal account so my Cronuts were released back to the masses to snag. I didn't make that same mistake the second time around.
So the first of the two flavors of Cronuts that I tried was peanut butter run caramel. I ordered this in January which was bitching cold. I still made the trek downtown with some friends to try these elusive treats. With my pre-order in hand, I skipped the line and received my precious pastries. We decided to eat them fresh so we sat in the garden room in the back. Luckily, they had it covered during the winter to keep the cold out.
