    the frosting is super sweet to make up for the lack of sweetness in the croissant. it was only pretty good.

    oh my.

    I saw a video where this lady made a cronut using canned crescent roll dough. She used 1 can which made only two.



    I don't want to die.

    That looks gimmicky and gross.

    Next thing you know, they will make deep fried and battered ones at the country fair and it will make the local news.

    I don't know what kind of "chip" I'm missing as a human being - but I can't STAND sweets.

    The thought of even taking a bite of that sickeningly sweet looking thing makes my throat clench up.

    hate 'em

    I don't know, but Stew Nod made fun of me for some of the stuff I eat. I found Oreo Brownie Bars at a convenience store and he sort of chuckled at me when I told him about it. He said he would never think to eat something like that, whereas I thought it was the greatest thing ever invented.

    I'm the same way. I like salty food and strong cheese way more than sugar and sweets.
