Cronut. Has anyone here actually had one?

I wouldn't stand in line for one but I wonder if it's as good as people say.

I haven't had one but they look and sound deeeelicious...

There's a way to easily make them at home though.....

Yes, had one earlier today, quite tasty, but heavy with fat and far too sweet. I'm am already having some distress from the fat, Shrek seems okay, though.

How can anything be too heavy with fat sweet? (I know you have special dietary needs----- but I don't.)

Where did you buy yours?

Got it at Rosauers. Croissants have fat, it's what makes the layers and then they deep fry it. Then the glaze is/was quite thick on it. I wouldn't have noticed the fat so much if I hadn't warmed it up and cut it with a fork because it was too hot. It squished with "grease".

I'm having a plain salad and a tuna steak to see if I can control the reflux I feel building.
