Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Episode 46: Nuts to Donuts

New, 1 comment

It's cronut time! We suppose this was inevitable.

There's a taste sensation that's sweeping the nation and that taste is cronuts. What is a cronut, you ask? Well, it's not quite a puppet, and it's not quite a mop, but oh man! On this episode of Scientific Podcast Goes Boink, Pete and Bill sample three types of cronut and have all manner of doughnut-centric discussion. Pictured above are the sugar and powdered sugar varieties of cronut. The Jellied cronut is pictured below, in the extended show notes. Or the cronotes, if you prefer.
