Cronuts-Frances Bakery-Los Angeles (Little Tokyo). So Cronuts have been all the rage recently. Cronuts are a Croissant and Donut hybrid claimed to be invented by Dominque Ansel Bakery in New York in 2013. Word quickly spread about these delicious morsels and many copycats of the product were introduced across the country. I decided to try the best known Cronut Patisserie in the Southern California area; Frances Bakery located in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles, CA. If I can sum this experience up in 3 words “BELIEVE THE HYPE.” The decadent delicious desserts are amazing…Triple D! Lets get one thing out of the way I am not a dessert person. But this could change me into a dessert person. Frances Bakery does these Cronuts right with a crisp flaky texture and smooth custard or tart jam filling. The Original with Custard and the Blueberry with Jelly are both must tries. The flavor profiles are completely different but both are close to perfection in their own right. The Smooth custard with the icing on the Original is only matched by the Blueberry’s tart Jelly. Add this one as another must try and OCFoodlist approved. Love Peace and Cronut Grease!
