According to the official website, "Our white glove service enables you to enjoy New York's hottest confection without waiting in line at 5 a.m." So far, this is a dream come true, right? Totally, if you're willing to take out a loan. Cronuts, like any premium product, have a markup value that you wouldn't believe. One cronut goes for $100. Ten cronuts? $1,500. If you're willing to shell out for 20, it's going to run you $5,000. The service is donating 10% of proceeds to Food Bank New York, and we can't fault them there. But still.
People. Really. We all deserve a treat, but someone has to stop this. Friends don't let friends spend $5,000 on dessert. Let's all agree to give Krispy Kreme another shot.
