Since the launch of the Cronut™ on May 10, 2013, a social media craze, a black market, and support site have all cropped up. Is this half croissant, half doughnut treat the next big thing? Or will Dominique Ansel’s creation go the way of the Magnolia gourmet cupcake and Pinkberry frozen yogurt, spawning numerous imitators until becoming almost ubiquitous?

One thing’s for sure: the imitators are already here. So if you’re not nearby the New York City original (or don’t have the wherewithal to stand in the hours-long line), here are a few other places where you can try the crusty cronut, or at least something similar to it:
