REVIEW: Paillard vs the Cronut

The cronut is not a doughnut, nor a croissant, it’s a little bit of both. Packed with pastry cream, it’s light, flaky and filled with a GINORMOUS amount of calories! One calorie per milligram and the cronut weighs on average 500 mg. 0_o

Starting tomorrow, Paillard bakery in downtown Quebec City will have its own version of this New-York city inspired gâterie. Dipped in oil, tossed in maple syrup sugar crumbs and filled with their unique custard-like pastry cream, meet the crobeigne!


For 4$ you are guaranteed to immediately gain a pound! The best time to have one fresh out of the oven is 11:00 am.
