Krispy Kreme Krispy Kroissant: Baked Cronut Creations Plus GIVEAWAY

Online and offline, everyone is going nuts over the so-called cronuts that originated from New York.  Have you checked the social media lately?  Celebrities and probably your favorite bloggers are raving over cronuts.  So last week, I finally gave in to try the new Krispy Kreme Krispy Kroissant.

I've heard of a lot of brands when it comes to cronuts.  But, I opted for this one because its accessible and affordable.  It's priced only at 70 php.  Not bad right?

The Krispy Kreme Krispy Kroissant is available in all Krispy Kreme branches in Luzon.  It is baked daily from 10 am to 2 pm so better get them as early as you can.  They have four variants: Apple Cinnamon, Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla Cream.

Chocolate Krispy Kroissant (70 php)
The Chocolate Krispy Kroissant is topped with rich Belgian chocolate ganache and sugar.  Chocoholic like me will surely be thrilled with its bitter sweet chocolate-y goodness.

Strawberry Krispy Kroissant (70 php)
The Strawberry Krispy Kroissant is a cronut topped with a rich whip of strawberry. The strawberry topping has the same sweetness and consistency as a strawberry jam.

Apple Cinnamon Krispy Kroissant (70 php)
My mom who is a fan of cinnamon loved this!  The Apple Cinnamon is topped with sweet apple filling and caramelized cinnamon sugar.  Although she usually complains of flavored doughnuts being too sweet, she said this one fits her preference just right.

Vanilla Cream Krispy Kroissant (70 php)
I've mentioned before that the Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Doughnut is my classic favorite.  The Vanilla Cream is a cronut dipped in their original glaze.  Among the four variants, this impressed me the least.  It didn't have a wow factor.  And, it was too sweet for me.

The Krispy Kroissant had flaky layers similar to a croissant.  I tried this as it is and also by re-heating it on the microwave.  Although you can fill the layers are you bite into it, it doesn't deliver the same crispiness and flakiness of a croissant.   It is soft and chewy but does not melt in your mouth like the Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

All the variants had the same vanilla cream filling.  I enjoyed the lightness of the vanilla cream.  In fact, I think this is the key in balancing with the toppings making the Krispy Kroissants indulging instead of overwhelmingly sweet. 

Since the Krispy Kroissants left us all with a good impression.  We now have an idea of what the fuzz over cronuts is about.  I can't wait to try the rest and compare them with each other.

After being please with our first cronut experience, I just feel like we should celebrate with a giveaway!  I'm giving away Two (2) Krispy Kreme Gift Certificates to Two (2) Lucky Readers! (Available for Metro Manila residents only who can claim it via meet-up)
