Dunkin' Donuts sampling new Croissant Donut downtown Friday morning

Dunkin' Donuts will be sampling its recently launched Croissant Donut, a delicate and flaky croissant ring that is glazed like a doughnut, on Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on the corner of Pratt and Light streets.

While. Supplies. Last.

The Canton, Mass.-based baked goods and coffee chain will be serving up the Croissant Donut, as well as its dark roast coffee, from a sampling vehicle that is touring cities throughout the Northeast in November.

Visitors can take their picture in front of the vehicle and then post the photo to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #CroissantDDonut for the chance to win free doughnuts for a year.

A little background: On May 10, 2013, the Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York City introduced a pastry called the Cronut, often described as a croissant-doughnut hybrid.

It became very, very, very popular.

Dunkin's new Croissant Donut is kind of like a Cronut, but it is not technically a Cronut. Only the original  Cronut, which is trademarked, can be called a Cronut.

Also, the Croissant Donut is not as good as the Cronut, which is very, very, very good.

On the other hand, at $2.49, the Croissant Donut costs half as much as a Cronut, which is $5. Also, you probably won't have to stand in a long line at Dunkin' Donuts to pay for a Croissant Donut. You still have to stand in a line at the Dominique Ansel Bakery if you want a Cronut, unless you place a pre-order online for weeks in advance.

Or you could have a bagel.
