In the wake of the cronut craze, we totally missed this new bakery mashup as it was quietly developed on the East Coast. It’s a croissant, it’s a bagel… it’s a cragel. Or, depending on where you go, it’s a crogel.
A supermarket in Norwalk, CT, recently introduced its crogel — a croissant shaped into a ring and baked up like a bagel. But the Bagel Store in Brooklyn, New York, has been testing its own cragel since September 2013. According to Gothamist, it’s a flaky croissant baked into a bagel.
Currently, cragels are only available in one classic flavor, but we're curious to see if sweet or savory will reign supreme.
