As expected, a long line formed this morning in anticipation of Dominique Ansel's Nutella-stuffed Cronut holes. Ansel will give out 2,000 holes in Flatiron between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m today — and they're completely free. (Even if he charged $20 a pop, there would still be a never-ending line.) Grub decided to sit this one out, but here's what people are saying on social media.
All quiet before 9 a.m.
The self-loathing begins.
Yes, I am in line for a #Nutella filled Cronut hole. Transformation into fucking idiot complete.— gretchen (@slayedest) May 19, 2014
200 people and counting.
If you're psychiatrist in need of work, the Nutella Cronut line is a good place to look.
Waiting in line for the Nutella Cronut because I hate myself.— Christian Alberto W (@chalbertow) May 19, 2014
By 10 a.m., there was a "long ass line."
No idea wtf a nutella cronut is but theres a long ass line near madison square park sooo maybe you should go get one if you like them?— ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡° ) Matt (@rzanumba1) May 19, 2014
At least it's nice outside.
At 10:20 a.m., the first batch arrived!
The 1st batch of @DominiqueAnsel Cronut(TM) holes made with Nutella is HERE at 23rd & Bway, while supplies last.— Nutella (@NutellaUSA) May 19, 2014
It never ends.
Here they are!
Be careful out there, kids.
Just watched a girl drop her Nutella cronut while attempting to take an Instagram picture. If that's not justice, I don't know what is.— Tyler Gildin (@TylerGildin) May 19, 2014
Hey, at least there are waffles and croissants, too.
