PRODUCT: Jolie’s Kronies, Cousin Of The Cronut

If you’ve been hankering for one of Dominique Ansel’s famous Cronuts but are neither willing nor able to wait in line at 5 a.m., we can recommend an excellent subsitute: Jolie’s Kronies, made by a Bronx baker.

You don’t have to wait for them. You can order them by phone and send a messenger.

The original Cronut from Dominique Ansel Bakery is made in a small SoHo kitchen that can produce only 250 Cronuts a day. The national hype has lines wrapping around the block.

By contrast, Enrico’s Bakery, maker of Jolie’s Kronies, has a large facility and the capacity to make as many Kronies as the market demands.

The New York Daily News called the Kronie “life changing.” After eating a Boston Cream Kronie, we’d go so far as to say “It doesn’t get better than this.”

The appearance is simple; the flavor is heavenly. Photo of Boston Cream Kronie courtesy Sal’s Bakery.
Jolie’s Kronies are not a replica of the Cronut, but a different hybrid of a croissant and a cream doughnut.

  • The Cronut alternates layers of croissant dough and custard. Jolie’s Kronies are a filled donut: croissant dough with filling running through the middle (and given how good that vanilla custard is, we were happy to have a larger hit of it).
  • There is one flavor of Cronut; Kronies are made in Apple Crumb, Boston Cream (our favorite and closest to the Cronut), Chocolate Mousse, Dulce De Leche, Jelly Glazed, Maple Bacon, Nutella, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Pistachio, Pumpkin, Raspberry and Salted Caramel.
    The Kronie was created by Joe Floriano and named by his five-year-old daughter, Jolie. So if you want a Cronut experience—or simply an incredibly good doughnut—contact Enrico’s Bakery: 1.914.723-0340 or The bakery is looking into shipping Kronies to those who can’t bet to the bakery. If you’re interested, email Joe to see if you can get a shipment.

    There’s a Jolie’s Sweet Creations kiosk in the Holiday Shops at Bryant Park through January 5th. It’s just inside the 40th Street entrance (between 5th and 6th Avenues), by the carousel. They’ve offered a 25% discount any Wednesday if you mention THE NIBBLE. Kronies will be a hit at any holiday event. Yum, yum!
