Welcome to the land of cinnamon and pastry goodness. Honestly one of the best baked goods to ever cross my lips in my entire lifetime thus far!
What is a Cronut you might ask?, allow me to educate you in the best way possible. A Cronut is basically a croissant & a doughnut smashed,infused & blended together to create this deliciously delicate little pastry. This little invention was created by a brilliant man know as chef Dominique Ansel of Dominique Ansel Bakery from New York City. People literally lined up for hours just to get a taste, and lucky for us XO has blessed us with the opportunity to try it for ourselves!
This beautiful pastry looks and feels a lot like a doughnut, however it is made out of croissant-like dough. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, they then fill the center with cream, roll the entire thing around in a sugary bed of cinnamon and then top it all off with one of they’re many fantastic flavours.
Myself and bae decided to go for the most extra thing on the menu which happened to be the ‘Freak Shake’, which is a thick and creamy milkshake topped off with a Cronut of your choice. We both agreed to try the chocolate hazelnut Cronut with a vanilla milkshake to even out the sweetness. It’s safe to say that majority of this scrumptious treat was not enjoyed by me because it was gone before I knew it (He practically inhaled it lol).
One thing is for sure, when I get the opportunity to visit XO Cronuts And Coffee again (which I most definitely will), I would most certainly have to get more than one because sharing is almost impossible!
