Square Nutella Bacon Cronuts Offer Just the Right Amount of Strange
Are we tired of the Cronut yet? Yes.
Is a huge reason that we’re from the west coast and bitter because we can’t try some for ourselves? Probably.
Are we, however, also huge advocates of anything deep-fried and slathered in bacon and nutella and therefore going to cover this new Cronut knock-off anyway? Abso-f*cking-lutely.
Available at the Le Petit Bakery in Brooklyn, these “Squats” (or “Square Cronuts”) are said to be even better than the original: “Denser [ . . .] more doughnut-like, with a crunchier outside and fluffier inside,” according to DNAInfo. They’re also named for the kind of exercise you’d need in order to not totally ruin your beach bod. You know, in case you had any delusions of maintaining fitness while practically inhaling that crispy, buttery, savory piece of geometric perfection.
In the week or so since the pastry has appeared on Le Petit’s shelves, the bakery’s sales have already tripled – which isn’t too hard to believe, considering there’s no limit on how many Squats you can pick up at a time. There is, however, probably a limit on how many squats you can finish while eating Squats, which means it’s a good thing’s summer more than halfway over, huh? Exactly.
