In This Corner: Herb Box
The Setup: Herb Box, high-end catering company turned restaurant and market, focuses on utilizing local ingredients to add a twist on world cuisine. With their Southbridge location, and market below, there is endless marbled space for pastry chef Ladawn Driscol to fill with delectable delicacies.
Termed the "Doissant" at Herb Box, the flavors change daily on this version, which is marked "50% Donut 50% Croissant 100% Delicious," and will set you back $5. The day we arrived, the flavor was Strawberry Lemon.
The Good: Excellent exterior sugary crunch on this Cronut™. The lemon filling was fresh and tart, and the server took the care to pack the Cronut™ in a plastic container, to keep it from being crushed.
The Bad: This cronut was a little doughy. The thing we love about the cronut/doissant is the flaky croissant layers. Also the strawberry glaze wasn't overly flavorful and really added nothing but a pop of color to the Cronut™.
