Yes, I saw it on the Today show.  Isn't it just a croissant cut out in a ring with glaze?  I guess to the baking impaired it sounds like the best thing since sliced bread. :)

I just read the article you posted - the New York baker who invented it has trademarked his creation!  If I were him, I would be making more than 200 a day while the craze is hot, because it seems like a short lived trend.

In Canada, Safeway has been selling croissant donuts for years.  They are still in the regular croissant shape, but glazed and drizzled with chocolate.  And they do feel fried.  Tasty for sure, but not something I can see myself lining up for hours for.  

 

What's next, deep fried cake pops?  Don't anyone go steal my idea now ;)
