Recognizing that I was to be in SOHO to check out a favorite store of mine, UNIQLO (to date there hasn’t been one in Massachusetts but they’re opening one in the Natick Mall in August, SO PUMPED), I asked my friend if she’d be open to us attempting the wait. Usually there is a ginormous line, but that day we got there around 11:30 am and there was around 20 people. We gave it a shot and a few minutes in a lady came outside and advised that only half of the people in line might have the chance to get a cronut. Still encouraged, I waited. Maybe ten minutes later, she came out again and repeated but advised that if we wanted to get something else of the pastries at the bakery, we could do the express lane.
Given that I wanted to make the most of my time in the city, I decided to go in and get a different pastry, may as well get something if you’re there right? I didn’t realize until the end that I had gotten in the line for the cronut. No one had pointed me otherwise. You could buy one or two cronuts, so given the good birthday karma and my luck for getting in line, I only got one in the hopes that other people did the same and everyone to where I was standing got one. Call me crazy, but I thought it was good, not great- for whatever reason I thought it was going to hot? Nevertheless I’m glad I’m able to say I’ve tried it.
Have you tried the cronut?
