Ohmigosh. Disney’s finally hit on a food trend…while it’s STILL A TREND!!!
[dfb-restaurant id=”44″ align=”right”]
Yup; according to our fearless DFB reporter, James A., the cronut (well, actually called the “croissant doughnut” due to the actual word “cronut” being trademarked) can now be found in Epcot!
On the menu at the Refreshment Port (the understated powerhouse that has brought us the incredible spicy chicken and cheddar poppers in the past), your cronut can be had for $4.49 or a Disney Dining Plan Snack Credit.
And here it is!!
What’s a Cronut?
It’s OK. I didn’t know either until just recently. But these hybrid croissant doughnuts have been taking the snack world by storm.
Introduced by chef Dominique Ansel for Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City, the cronut is a doughnut made from layer upon layer of croissant pastry. The whole thing is fried up, then filled with silky cream and frosted. Flavors can vary, so there’s always something new to bring to the recipe.
Earlier this year, they were so popular that there was actually a black market developing for the sweets!
Try Disney’s Version!
Anyway, the trend has made its way to Disney World, so if you’re headed down to Epcot anytime soon you get to try one (lucky ducks)!
It doesn’t look like this version has filling or frosting, but it still seems to be pretty great.
James says, “It was very good, and my wife is obsessing over wanting another one already. It was flaky and tender and did not disappoint from what the news has been saying about cronuts.” He coupled it with a Starbucks coffee from Fountain View Cafe and deemed the pair just about perfect.
I can’t wait to hear what you think!
