No.  (Same goes for the current pretzel-bun craze.)
 
2013-08-14 06:59:26 PM
fark the motherfarking cronut. i don't care. Not even clicking.

/yes, I cared enought to post this. That's it.

Stop putting sweet flavors where they don't belong.

If I want some sweetness in my burger, I'll order it with caramelized onions or put ketchup on it.


/I'm looking at you too, pretzel buns.
 
2013-08-14 07:00:15 PM
I'd try it.  Then again, I live close to Canada and I like poutine.
 
2013-08-14 07:00:16 PM
Sounds like a state fair.

Ugh, had one of these from Wendy's this past weekend on a whim...my god, that thing was HORRIBLE.

Can I have the poutine instead?

/Firefox doesnt have the word poutine in its dictionary,  a complaint to Mozilla is in order
 
2013-08-14 07:04:18 PM
Is that real bacon or that Canadian crap?
 
2013-08-14 07:05:44 PM
Sounds derivative. Didn't Paula Dean already do this one?

Sure, it was a dough-nut rather than a cro-nut, but who cares?

To quote Stimpey the Cat:  "(It's poison.)"

I think the doughnut bun pushes it into the barf zone.
I would LOVE to try a croissant bun, though.

Huh. I thought "poutine" had something to do with porn.*

While I cringe at this (and technically it's just a revamped Luthor, I think we saw something about this on an earlier headline here?) I personally like pretzel breads. It was always a horrible pain in the ass to find them around where I live (I think the only pretzel bread stuff I found once was a pack of pretzel breadsticks from Walmart), so having more publicity can only help my plight. Costco's started carrying pretzel rolls in their bakery, so it's a start.

I do however agree that having something go so mainstream however yields bad outcomes down the line though. Right now it's just Wendy's and Sonics that I've seen, but god knows McDonalds will suddenly announce the "new pretzel bun big mac!" right before Burger King unveils the "pretzel bun whopper"...

I work literally a two min walk from the CNE. It's true the foods there are mostly awesome, and many are pretty crazy. They have a kind of foods of the world thing, so they pretty much got you covered, whatever your food preference.

They even have a giant fan now to blow the smell of Buffalo, NY away as it drifts over Lake Ontario.
 
2013-08-14 07:19:11 PM
When have you ever heard anyone say, "Honey, lets stay in and order Canadian food?"
 
2013-08-14 07:19:28 PM
I don't even have to look at this thing and know it's a f*cking gutbomb. So, no.
 
2013-08-14 07:35:14 PM
A burger on a cronut? What will they think of next?
 
2013-08-14 07:43:00 PM
Not sure what the point of this is, beyond another abysmal failure. Like, Kryspy Kreme (sp, don't care because revolting; stuff that hot light straight up your fat American ass) has tried twice now to get into the Canadian market and has been a miserable failure both times? Just keep your diabetes-inducing garbage south of the border, people. Only a few up here are interested in it, and they will be quietly done away with on ice floes, make no mistake.

Bacon Marmalade is gross too. It's smoky and way too sweet. The bacon is mostly rubbery as well.

The true horror in that sandwich is the hunney-mustard sauce they put in there. I had to wash it out of my beard.

My favorite weird food is live green frog on a bun.  The taste just jumps out of it when you bite into it.

Accept no Imitations, the Luther is the only acceptable doughnut burger.

B-dubs had the pretzel bunned brat burger before wendy's or sonic had their pretzel bunned things.

The people of Alberta take no responsibility whatsoever for the weird-ass foods developed east of us.  Out here, we just eat slabs of beef (or steak for those who want a facny word) with some bbq sauce or perhaps horseradish if it's a prime rib.

In other words, we eat real food dammit!

I have relatives in LV. I love walking up to the CNE grounds...well, not with the current mess but when it's done there, it will be nice.

A store that sells pretzels has... pretzels? Seriously though I do like AA's, they're one of the few places I can get a soft pretzel around here short of going to a Mariners game or something. Pretzel dogs aren't exactly something to be scared of like they sell, it's basically a small evolution of a hot dog-based pig in a blanket.

And now i've depressed myself... Some stores used to carry these awesome as hell bagel dogs that I'd nom on like a madman. Haven't seen one in years... T_T

Just a rip off of "The Luther", invented in the 70's by Martin Luther King when he couldn't get served at a whites-only burger joint.

What about the mini donuts?

I haven't been to The Ex in a few years, but this might just get me there this year! Also love the ice cream waffles and Tiny Tom donuts! If you've never been, you have to go just for the Food Building!
 
2013-08-15 11:00:26 AM
I've decided to skip the "cronut." I don't WANT to know. It sounds like something invented by a food hipster wearing lens-free glasses because he likes how they make him look (somewhat akin to going everywhere in a wheelchair despite being able to comfortably walk).
