To celebrate National Donut Day, let me introduce you to the new treat that has the pastry world buzzing.

It's called the Cronut.

Thanks, Steph! What is that, exactly?

The Cronut seems to be the world's newest pastry sensation. The sweet treat is a hybrid cross between a donut and a croissant, and was developed by New York City pastry chef Dominque Ansel for his bakery earlier this month.

The yummy confection has gained such popularity that an online community for Cronut lovers has been established!
