Need comfort food while waiting for tropical storm Flossie to arrive? It’s not too late to partake of the buttnut, Hawaii’s answer to the popular cronut. Well, okay, the real name from Regal Bakery is BUTTerNUT, so it seems like “buttnut” is the intended moniker.
Available in bavarian cream, green tea, and POG, the buttnut isn’t in the same class as THE cronut and probably not on par with the frissant. Personally, I’d rather try out the croissada before demanding a buttnut. But then again, the buttnut is available here and now in the 808 state.
