Read more about the cronut history on The Huffington Post here.
We were on the hunt for where to find a cronut in the Sacramento area, so we asked readers on Facebook for suggestions. Here are a few places readers said are worth a try:
- Rustic Grains, 406 Vernon St. in Roseville: Wendy said this bakery "has some really good ones." A reviewer on Yelp said they were "simply heaven" here, however another Yelp reviewer said the cronuts here left something to be desired.
- Sweet Dozen, 5207 Madison Ave Ste E in Sacramento: Here, they're called a "doissant." It's best to call ahead to order these, because there's only a limited number every morning, according to their website.
- Estelle's Patisserie, 901 K St. in Sacramento: A line of customers came here over the weekend for their "croixnut," and they sold out, according to their Facebook page. So come early.
- Safeway: One person said she saw some at Safeway. We found an article about croissant doughnuts sold at Canada Safeways, but nothing about in California. Have you seen them here?
