With December a week away, Dominique Ansel has revealed the next cronut flavor: Valrhona Chocolate Champagne. December's cronut will use real champagne—Brut Champagne, to be exact. Furthermore, it won't be overwhelmingly sweet, because it incorporates Valrhona Caraibe 66 percent dark chocolate. The finishing touch is a sprinkle of orange zest sugar, just for good measure.
This is anticipated to be the best-received flavor to date, thus making the process of ordering one online akin to the Saturday morning struggle associated with the highly-coveted new sneaker release. Also, winter is coming, so anyone waiting in the cronut line is really a die-hard fan.
