Sconuts are the new cronuts?

First we have the fusion of croissants and donuts. Now it's scones and donuts (sconuts)?

I wonder if this is a local thing or have others seen this? I must admit, the chocolate chip/chocolate glazed sconut sounds appealing.

  1. So, um, it's a round scone with a hole in the middle? This is different how?

      That's exactly what it is. A fancy scone in donut shape (and baked as scone would be). Plus a novel name.

      But how is that 'o' pronounced? In the Scottish way or American? (Gone or cone)

        But they put donut glazes on them! Sheer genius!

          Next step, chocolate pretzel sticks in scon-dolls.

        That actually looks oddly appealing . . . I could see tossing a fried egg and cheese on there for a breakfast sandwich.
