There could be a legal battle brewing over some high-calorie treats that have similar names — one of them at the CNE here in Toronto.
Yesterday on opneing day at the Ex, Toronto’s Le Dolci Bakery and Epic Burger and Waffles introduced the Cronut Burger — a beef patty and cheese wedged between two cinnamon-sugar coated “Cronuts” topped with maple bacon jam.
The Cronut – a doughnut-croissant hybrid – was invented by New York chef Dominique Ansel, and launched at his Manhatten bakery in May.
He trademarked the name “Cronut” and his lawyers have cautioned others from using it.
A manager at the New York bakery says they’re aware of the Toronto concotion, but wouldn’t confirm if lawyers are involved yet.
