In A Cronut-Obsessed World, Twinkies Make An Impressive Comeback

BY MICHAEL STONE, FORBES CMO NETWORK, AUGUST 16, 2013 - If you’re reading the news, it may appear as though Cronuts have taken the country by storm. While they’ve certainly amassed a large following, Cronuts are still only available, at least for now, in Dominique Ansel’s bakery in SoHo New York. I still haven’t tasted one myself, but as a New Yorker, believe me when I say that they’re all the rage. In case you don’t know, a Cronut is a cross between a doughnut and a croissant. Think of circled layers of croissant (with a hole in the middle) with the outside texture and cream or glaze of a doughnut.
