Crumbnuts at Crumbs

crumbnut sign

OMG Crumbnuts are here! screams the sign outside a Crumbs store in Midtown.  I’m not sure if Crumbs was preparing for a long line outside to rival the line at Dominique Ansel’s bakery, but there were plenty of crumbnuts on the shelf at 2 p.m. in the afternoon.  There are three varieties available of crumbnuts:  plain, powdered sugar and Bavarian cream.  I opted for powdered sugar, although I can tell you the Bavarian cream looked like the most popular, as it was nearly out.

Maybe I should’ve gotten the Bavarian because the outside of this one was a bit hard, as if it were getting stale.  The inside had more give and tasted fresher.

It tasted like a grocery store doughnut that’s very airy.  It’s not very impressive.  I’d opt for the cupcakes at Crumbs.  They have some great-looking ones for the season like pumpkin and apple.  They also have some Italian-bakery-inspired cupcakes like cannoli and rainbow cookie with a mini cannoli and mini rainbow cookie on top.  I am curious to try the Cronut from Dominique Ansel, but I just can’t get myself to get up that early and really can’t wait in line that long.

Every season in NYC is special, but the fall is a great time to be here.  Everyone comes back from summer vacation.  The lecture circuit heats up again (hey, I’m a nerd).  New restaurants open.  New students come from all over the world for a new New York adventure.  And new treats (and old) pop up with seasonal flavors like apple, pumpkin, maple, pear and sweet potato.  Enjoy one of these fall treats in NYC!
