Last week we introduced to you the cronut, the new food craze sweeping New York City and other cities in America. We were left wondering if anyone served the delectable treat in Vancouver. Well thanks to our article and social media reach, we have an answer, and that answer is yes, you can find the cronut in Vancouver.

The cronut can be found at Swiss Bakery. Their new product is a combination of the texture of a croissant and the taste of a donut. It retails for $4 and they call it a frissant, not a cronut. Regardless of the name, it’s essentially the same thing.

So what exactly is a frissant? Swiss Bakery explains that a frissant is actually a croissant and donut birthed together. Made with 100% butter laminated layers goodness, proofed, then fried in grape seed oil. They then inject it with vanilla bean custard cream and top it off with a little icing.
