Cruffin

Wow. Croissants are trying so hard to be in on everything. It’s not surprising. The Cronut achieved viral status last year. So why not make more stuff with flakey dough, add a “cr” to its name and try to hit worldwide baker fame.

This cruffin came from my local grocery store. It’s croissant-ness is clear. But the muffin-ness is only apparent in its quasi-muffiny shape. Flavor, texture and concept are all croissant. This guy even had a creamy chocolate center. Muffins don’t have creamy chocolate centers. Croissants do.

That said, I am not tired of the croissant hybrid trend. I am ready for more. Crupcake? Apple critter? (Or would it be Crapple fritter?) Crizza? Cragel? I could do this all day. Cramburgers? Crinkies? Croffeecake? Craffles? Crancakes? Crisquits and Cravy?
