What It’s Like To Buy A Cronut

You can taste New York City baker Dominique Ansel’s cross between a Croissant and a Doughnut only if you can brave the early morning line

1. You Wake Up Early

Really, really early.

2. You Get There at 6:20, And You Aren’t the First One There

The bakery opens at 8 a.m. on a weekday, but the first person in line gets there at 5 a.m.

3. But You Aren’t the Last One Either

The bakery only sells 200 Cronuts a day with a 2 Cronut per person maximum, so you have to be one of the first hundred in line to ensure this early morning journey is worth it.

4. As Time Ticks On, You Realize You’re Part of a ‘Craze’

5. Yet If This Many People Are In Line …

6. Passersby Think You’re Nuts

They have to get to work before 9, so who’s laughing now?

7. This Pasta Dress Starts to Look Attractive After 70 Minutes

9. Phone Games Pass the Time

10. It Starts to Rain

11. Then at 8, the Baker Opens the Door!

YES! Thank you Chef Ansel!

12. Inside, Pastry Chefs Set Fires

13. As You Wait for One of These Cronuts

14. Cronuts That Are Already Sold Out!

Except for you, the early morning Cronut riser. You get two. TWO! For $10.

15. And a Smile from the Cronut Master

17. You Take a Bite …

18. And Your Tastebuds Go …
