To hear the New York-based national media tell it, the whole of the United States of America has been whipped into an all-out frenzy this summer over the cronut, a croissant-donut thing originally introduced by the Dominique Ansel Bakery in May.
But it turns out much more proof is needed! According to a new YouGov poll, the quote-unquote cronut craze is basically a media-generated myth.
In fact, a whopping 68 percent of those surveyed have not even heard of your precious cronut, and 11 percent politely said they were unsure.
Bask in the glory of truth, dear reader:
And most people still don't care about cronuts once they're told what they are!
CONCLUSION: THE CRONUT CRAZE IS LIMITED TO A HANDFUL OF OVERLY-INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE. NO MORE TRENDS STORIES WARRANTED.
