AUSTIN (KXAN) — Cronuts are coming to Austin, but for a short time only.

The trademarked Manhattan pastry treat made by Dominic Ansel is coming to Austin for a two-hour event at South by Southwest Interactive hosted by global communications firm Allison+Partners. Ansel will personally hand out samples of his delicious creation from 11:50 p.m. on Sunday until 2 a.m. Monday at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel.

If you don’t already have a SXSW badge (for any of the three conferences) you better get one, because this event is only open to badgeholders.

Ansel will also debut one of his new creations at the event, a shot of milk in an edible chocolate chip mini cup. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
