Mouse Infestation Closes ‘Cronut’ Bakery

The Dominique Ansel Bakery in the SoHo section on New York is the one who brought us the ‘cronut’. They are donuts that have the shape and texture of a donut but the crispy, flakey texture of a buttery Croissant, sort of a hybrid croissant-donut, thus named the ‘cronut’.

The bakery has been shut down after failing a health inspection, so no more ‘cronuts’,  at least for a while. The Department of Health closed them down because of a mouse infestation and the bakery needs a professional exterminator to fix the problem. A customer posted a picture of a mouse in the bakery on line and the Health Department stepped in. Now the basement will be re-cemented and the bakery will be exterminated.

The hope is to open soon because the ‘cronut’ has become a food craze in New York with people lining up hours before the bakery opens in hopes of getting a fresh ‘cronut’.
