Croissant Bread Is The Breakfast Innovation That We've All Been Waiting For
If you don't live in either America or one of the more hip London boroughs, you'll probably have never heard of the 'cronut', a cross between a doughnut and a croissant, but the snack has taken the dessert world by storm.
And now it looks like a new croissant crossover is here to blow us all away! Introducing, the croloaf.
While the name isn't quite as snappy as that of the humble cronut, at least the croloaf will be a lot easier to get your hands on as it's going on sale in Marks & Spencer.
The delectable snack is made with all French butter and can be sliced like a normal loaf of bread. What's even better is that a single slice of croloaf contains around 114 calories, while a normal croissant will fill you up with about 340 calories. (Let's all just overlook the fact that a normal slice of white bread contains about 66 calories, shall we?)
A croloaf will set you back £2.40 but you'll be pleased to know that, unlike a normal croissant, you don't have to eat the whole thing in one day. In fact the croloaf can be saved for at least a few days. Perfect.
M&S says in a statement that it was inspired to release a version of the croloaf after seeing tonnes of artisan bakeries from across the world sharing their own versions of the dish:
Our croissant loaf is perfect for those who like the convenience of grabbing a slice of toast for breakfast but love the delicious buttery taste of croissants.Now they don't have to compromise and can enjoy the best of both.We know our customers really enjoy trying new foods and we travel around the world looking for new ideas that we can bring to their dinner tables.We're really excited about our latest creation, which is the perfect fusion of French and British breakfast.
What do you think? Are you excited to try the croloaf or does it all look a bit much for you?
