The Cronut Chronicles: Cronut Crazy

I know you'll feel sorry for me when I say that last month I sacrificed my health to find the best-tasting O.C. cronut for our Three's a Trend piece. Our team tried nine different croissant-donut hybrids from five local bakeries--Pandor, The Donuttery, Paris Baguette, Café 109, and Kelly's Burgers & Donuts--and narrowed it down to three. We crowned Kelly's blueberry cronut the winner.
