Here’s the Scene at Today’s Nutella Cronut Hole Debut

How long would you wait?

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.

200 people and counting.

If you're psychiatrist in need of work, the Nutella Cronut line is a good place to look.

By 10 a.m., there was a "long ass line."

At least it's nice outside.

At 10:20 a.m., the first batch arrived!

It never ends.

Be careful out there, kids.

Hey, at least there are waffles and croissants, too.
