Proud New Yorkers finally have something in common with tourists, as both will go to unseemly lengths for a cronut. For the whopping 68 percent of you who are still unaware of what a cronut is, the trademarked donut-croissant hybrid was created by pastry chef Dominique Ansel of Dominique Ansel Bakery.
The pastry has been in such high demand that the bakery was forced to set a limit at two per customer.
Ansel recently sat down with Animal NY and revealed a new philanthropic offer. In an effort to support Food Bank NYC, Ansel is giving special treatment to any customer wearing this Crolanthropy T-shirt, who will then be allowed to purchase four cronuts instead of two.
All the proceeds from the sales of the $20 tee will go towards the Food Bank. That's an equivalent of 50 free meals to New Yorkers in need for the cost of one shirt.
