Forget the Cronut: Enter the Donut Cannoli

Yes, I’ve tried the cronut, the croissant/donut mash-up. It’s okay. But this? I couldn’t resist the combination of a donut with cannoli filling at my local Stew Leonards. It was $4.99 for the two-pack but my curiosity got the best of my wallet and I brought them home.

Result: YUM.

It helps that the filling is light and rich, the perfect cannoli filling, rather than being thick and gummy like some I’ve tried. I’m eating them one small piece at a time because I’m pretty sure eating a whole one all at once will harden my arteries.

Here’s a problem? What do I call it? A donolli? A Conut?

Any suggestions, readers?
