My $0.02 on Cronuts

Based on exhaustive research in reviewing metadata obtained through social media channels and forums, I’ve birthed an opinion of this Cronuts Craze.

People wake up in the wee hours of the night to stand/sit/squat in line to make the 8am opening of Dominique Ansel’s Bakery┬áso that they may acquire these croissant/doughnut hybrids. Much like Black Friday lines, craziness abounds, e.g., a passerby offered a line-waiter $100 for a cronut. For $5 and ~2 hours of discomfort at a most inopportune time of day, many say it’s not worth it. Of course, when you’ve gone through that much effort and inconvenience and when you’re starving/adamant about breaking your fast with a cronut, your brain will tell you it’s the best thing you’ve ever had.

So, what do you do if you don’t believe me/really want to try one/are afraid of missing out on a seemingly-necessary-experience-but-is-actually-not? There are 3 potential remedies to this:

1. Party the night before. Stay out till last call. Then head on over and wait in line.
2. Get a TaskRabbit to get it for you.
3. Read about it and convince yourself/others that it’s not worth it.
