Attention: Carson Daly wants some cronuts and he wants them NOW.

What’s that, you say? You’ve never heard of a cronut? The croissant-donut hybrid is the latest breakfast fad to sweep the nation. It’s also been dubbed a doughssant.

The craze originated in New York City. Lines have formed around the block for just a taste of the sweet treat and now there are delivery services charging upwards of $100 to bring it straight to your door.

“Just the idea of a basic donut having a little more of that kind of succulent flakiness, a little more, you know, baked if you will. That combination of the dough and the baked flake is very intriguing to me,” Carson said Monday morning.

The LAist reports that you can grab a piece of the cronut action at Semi Sweet Bakery in Downtown LA, Frances Bakery & Coffee in Little Tokyo, and the Canoga Park Spudnuts location.
