Complex’s First We Feast blog posted these bisnut Instagram photos that seem to confirm that Carl’s Jr. has not scrimped on one of the most crucial doughnut ingredients: sprinkles.
Cronuts, of course, were developed by chef Dominique Ansel and were such a hit that lines formed outside of his New York bakery. (Until that mouse thing. But that’s all cleared up now!) The part-croissant, part-doughnut pastry debuted last year; you can buy one in New York for $5, or, you know, you can just wait for Carl’s Jr. to roll out the “bisnut” nationwide.
Carl’s Jr. reps did not immediately return an e-mail asking for comment. Presumably because they were brainstorming other things biscuits and/or doughnuts could be combined with.
