I hate trends.
Okay that is not entirely true. I hate trends that beat nice items into … the… ground.
At one time pomegranates and blueberries could be purchased at reasonable, if not cheap prices. Then their anti-oxidant properties were discovered. Ah… supply and demand. Demand went up. Prices soared. I’m paying more for my Pom Juice and fresh blueberries on my Wheat Chex.
I’m sorry honey. No matter how much no amount of juice will not smooth out your age and weather damaged skin.
Don’t *#$# with my blueberries.
Everything has a trend: clothing, movies, and of course, desserts.
Cupcakes and bacon-on-everything stand aside. Meet the new kid in town: Cronuts™.
- People are standing in lines for hours in New York City.
- There are opportunities to earn money by stand in queue for the people with a desperate sweet tooth and little time
- There are more knock off Cronuts™ in production than fake Louis Vutton bags
So when I strolled into my local Paris Baguette, I noticed between the chocolate croissant and the red bean donut stood gleaming in the display case lights a Croissant Donut (a.k.a bootleg Cronut™).
Alright I know I said I hated trends, but I couldn’t pass up this opportunity.
For $3 I walked out with my own Croissant Donut. I could have eaten it there or in my car, but I wanted to try it undisturbed by follow diners and Sunday morning after-church traffic.
