Once every few thousand years comes an invention that changes the world. Changes the world in a way that effects every man, woman, and child. Some would argue that it was the automobile or the computer but those people would be wrong, dead wrong. In fact, some people would call those people idiots. Because we all know that the single most important invention was invented by Dominique Ansel. Did he cure cancer? Find life on Mars? Purify water for 3rd world nations? No, he combined the flaky goodness of a croissant with the heavenly perfection of a donut. May I present you with the Cronut.

Ansel was recognized in 2013 with the James Beard Award for Outstanding Pastry Chef. And if all goes according to plan, he will receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his Cronut. Because if there is one thing that can bring all humanity together is fried dough and sugar. Did I mention that they are pumped full of cream? No? I didn't did I? They are pumped full of cream, might as well be pumped full of angel tears because this is as close to heaven as some of us may ever get. 

There is only one place in the entire world to buy a Crount and that is at Dominque's Bakery in New York. They are released every morning and sell out within minutes. For those of you lucky enough to live in New York, you should probably drop out of school, quit your job, abandon your family, postpone that life saving surgery and go wait in line. There can be nothing more important than tasting one of these Cronuts.
