OMG Cronuts!

Screen%20Shot%202013-08-05%20at%209.19.32%20AM.pngDominique Ansel was smart to trademark the "cronut," protecting his croissant/donut from impostors and knockoffs now widespread across the country and even overseas. DK's Donuts in Santa Monica, one of the first LA bakeries to riff off the cronut with the DKronut, has been forced to rename their layered baked good after receiving word from Dominique Ansel Bakery's legal team that "kronut" apparently "infringes on Dominique Ansel's intellectual property." New name: DK Double Decker O-Nut. [LAT]
