Dunkin’ Donuts Latest Cronut Copycat?

DunkinDonutsKorea/Facebook(NEW YORK) -- The cronut, the pastry made up of layers of croissant dough deep fried and filled with vanilla cream, may have some new competition.

Far from the cronut’s birthplace -- Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City -- a similar creation was introduced last weekend.

Meet the New York Pie Donut, now offered by select Dunkin’ Donuts locations in South Korea. The pastries, according to Quartz, are being sold in the high-end Seoul neighborhood of Gangnam, as well as Jamsil and Myungdong.  Photos on the Dunkin’ Donuts Facebook page show people lined up to sample the pastry.

South Koreans apparently are just like Americans.  New Yorkers have been lining up outside Dominique Ansel Bakery every morning to taste the popular pastries, which sell for $5 each.
