The foodie fad that is the cronut has made its impact across the globe. The cronut craze started in New York then Canada’s take on the croissant/donut is the frissant, mixing a fritter and a croissant.
Locally in Hawaii, the cronut now takes shape as the croissada. Yes, that’s a croissant and a malasada. Available exclusively at the Pacific Beach Hotel, a croissada is:
a delicate blend of a croissant and malasada filled with a Polynesian vanilla Bavarian cream.
Damn, my idea for a local-style cronut would have been called Cheeholes, playing off of the “cheehoo” exclamation. The tagline for Cheeholes would have been, “They’ll make you” (it’s meant to be an open ended question), and the URL would have been cheehol.es. There goes a fat fortune. 🙁
