Foodie Friday: Cronut vs Dossant

Most of you pastry lovers like me must have heard of the Cronut by now. But for those who haven’t, a Cronut is a recently invented creation which combines the flaky & buttery texture of a croissant into the sugary fried goodness of a donut. Sounds amazing right? It is. But to be honest, when I first heard about this strange hybrid, I wasn’t sure what to make of it. I passed it off as some strange fad which would disappear after its 5 minutes of fame and wasn’t too keen on trying it out.
But last week when I took my sister on a tour of Selfridges, including its very delightful and slightly snooty food hall, we came across a small selection of cronuts and decided to try one out. It was basically love at first bite. The cronut had so many different textures which started a party in my mouth. From flaky, to slightly crunchy, with just the right amount of sweetness, your taste buds will thank you for it.

After the cronut, I thought I had tried everything the world of pastries had to offer. But of course not. Meet the cronut's sibling, the Dossant. What’s that now? To be honest I had never heard of these until I saw them being sold at the Harrods Bakery. Leave it to Harrods to come up with something that almost trumps the Cronut. I say almost, because even though the Dossant (basically a deep fried sugary croissant) was melt in your mouth delicious, it will make your heart shudder. Literally. I couldn’t have more than a few decadent bites of it, because it’s just so rich with tons of sugar and butter.
So what comes out on top? For me the winner is the Cronut simply because it has a good balance between naughty and nice. Although, I urge you all to indulge yourselves and try both and judge for yourself! xo
