Cronut Mania

2013_cronuts_cro-trads12.jpgFoster Kamer breaks down the mania that surrounds things like the ramen burger and the Cronut. He thinks it all started with the bacon craze: "These 'neat' and 'taboo' foods that represent nothing more than a stamp on one's passport of ostensibly adventurous (but really: idiotic, lame, and not-really-all-that adventurous) eating reflect something even worse—a base desire to be part of a mania. If anything, the Cronut itself is an exception, as Ansel's an established craftsman, and this didn't start as the birth of a craze so much as an idea to try out." [FWF]
