Cronuts at Safeway?

The Librarian Oct 3, 2013 10:12 AM

My daughter, who lives in Walla Walla, WA, sent me a picture of the label on a box of cronuts that she bought in one of the Safeways there. I thought I would alert all of you who are interested that they may carry them at Safeway here in the Bay Area. I'm no help because I rarely shop at Safeway and I'm not a fried dough fan, so I haven't checked them out. She's no help about how good they are because her boyfriend ate all of them when she was at work!
Good luck in your search...

    Saw them at the Milpitas Safeway about 2 weeks ago, but couldn't bring myself to buy them. I believe they were $5/pkg of 6. Would love to hear if they're worth the calories...

      I wonder if they were labelled "cronuts" as that is a trademarked name by the creator of the product. Unless it was marked as such, then Safeway is bound to be on the receiving end of a lawsuit. I've seen them labelled locally as "cronots" which is a good play on the original name.

          Not exactly a ringing endorsement... "my son stopped eating after less than half a kronut"

            Seeing the trans fat in the ingredients stopped me from buying them. A friend who couldn't resist said they were not very different from regular donuts.
