The era of the doughnut/other-tasty-thing hybrid doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon. Chains couldn’t stand to see the humble Cronut stand alone, and they’ve been trying to bottle the same mash-up lightening ever since it launched.
Back in April, Waffles Cafe in Chicago decided the world needed a wonut (waffle donut). And just last week, Jack in the Box decided to not even try to be original, shamelessly launching its own “croissant donut.”
Now, Carl’s Jr. is throwing its own knockoff pastry into the ring. According t to Brand Eating, the chain is now testing a donut made out of biscuit dough at certain locations in Southern California. It’s called a “Bisnut,” naturally.
Bisnuts are $0.99 for one, or $1.89 for two. So obviously buying just one is out of the question.
Carl’s Jr. takes pride in its “Made from Scratch Biscuits,” which are the basis for the new hybrid item. The restaurant already offers strawberry-glazed biscuits, so transforming them into doughnuts wasn’t such a huge stretch.
You get a choice of white or chocolate icing with sprinkles on your Bisnuts. No Nutella. No powdered sugar. Nothing fancy.
