A Cronut as Sweet By Any Name

Manhattan -

The Cronut,  the popular doughnut-croissant hybrid introduced by Soho’s Dominique Ansel Bakery, is the doughnut-of-the-moment, spurring long lines of customer. The treat also has rival pastry chefs around the city lining up to provide patrons with their take on the decadent dessert. The creators of the Cronut are scrambling to protect its name, while imitators come up with monikers of their own, like “Doughssants” and “Kronies.”
