Au Bon Pain’s CroisBun

Au Bon Pain recently premiered the CroisBun, a croissant-bun hybrid, and the latest in the line of cronut knockoffs.  The CroisBun is different because it’s a cross between a croissant and a “bun.”  I think it’s more of a cross between a croissant and a Danish.  This one has strawberry and cheese filling.  Normally, I’m not crazy about chain stores/bakeries, but this CroisBun is delicious.  It is fresh.  It is buttery and flaky like a croissant.  And it also has the creamy cheese filling of a Danish.  It’s not overly sweet but just right.  It’s a winner.  The name is a little weird, though because the way it’s written makes me want to call it a “croybun” not a “crowbun” like “croissant-bun.”

  1. Oh I love Au Bon Pain – always a favorite visit when I hit the East Coast, even if it is a chain! :) This looks like a fun spin, I like this twist on the cronut since it’s not deep fried.

  2. I’m so glad you tried this. I’ve been eyeing the croisbun for a few weeks and couldn’t decide if I should try it. I’ll have to take the plunge and give it a shot, it sounds delicious!

  3. I’m so glad you tried this. I’ve been eyeing the croisbun for weeks and couldn’t decide if it’d be good. Now I’ll definitely have to try it!
