Bacon “Cronuts” Are Apparently Better Than The Real Thing

Hey Cro-nutbags! It's your weekly cronut update! Though imitators have run rampant (doissants, anyone?), Le Petit Bakery in Fort Greene, Brooklyn has apparently done the unthinkable and topped the original. That's right, first reports indicate these confections (called "squats" but clearly advertised as cronut-y) are giving Dominique Ansel a run for his money. What's the difference? Well, they're square. But, far more importantly, they're sprinkled with BACON.
As it is the universally acknowledged truth that bacon makes everything 400 percent better, we think this report might actually have merit. (Update: Gothamist confirms reported deliciousness). There's only one way to find out though. Better get in line now. If we've learned anything from Cronut-A-Palooza 2013 it's that these new bacon-covered goodies will be sold out by the time we publish this post. (Gothamist)
