The fans of Dominique Ansel’s Cronuts may seem even crazier now than they did when they first started waiting in line at 4:30 am for a pastry. Thanks to the Today Show, we can hear all about the ridiculous things Cronut lovers have to say about their beloved donut-croissant hybrid—and also about Ansel’s creation of the pastry and subsequent success. And even if you’re just waiting around for the Cronut craze to die out, you know you appreciate a good food-reaction hyperbole.
Be sure to check out the full video above for the Today Show hosts’ innuendo-laced tasting reactions, and in the meantime, consult our list of some of the best Cronut quips, mostly from the vid:
“This pastry changed my life.” (Chef Ansel claims people have said this to him many times.)
“The hype is real.”
“It’s like a religious experience.”
“It’s like fine wine.”
“I’ve had dreams about a cronut before, but I’ve never actually tried one.”
And last but certainly not least: “I think Cronuts are what Jesus eats on a Sunday morning.”
