The not-so-humble Cronut may have bought its creator, Dominique Ansel, a new hot tub or two, but that doesn’t mean this Prince of perfect pastry is standing still. His newest creation? A lobster tail that is heavy on the pretzel and peanut butter and not so heavy on the lobster.
The appropriately named Pretzel Lobster Tail is currently available at Ansel’s bakery in Manhattan, NYC. This lobster tail-shaped pretzel is filled to the brim with peanut butter and brittle candy. It comes served with a cup of whipped honey brown butter for dipping purposes and the whole thing is topped with sea salt. What it lacks in sea-based protein it more than makes up for in carby, peanut buttery goodness.
Each tail will set you back eight bucks but, hey, that’s a whole lot cheaper than if it happened to be made with actual lobster.
