The Crauxnut is dead. Little Bigs' imitation of Dominique Ansel's wildly popular (and trademarked) Cronut will no longer go by that name after the small South Portland bakery received a cease and desist order from the Cronut legal brigade. Little Bigs posted the news on Facebook yesterday and solicited recommendations for a new name. The winner? The C&D (which earned the suggester a free dozen of the flaky doughnut croissants).
Little Bigs debuted the item formerly know as a Crauxnut in January, offering them only on Sundays starting at 11 a.m. They've been selling out ever since, with pre-orders now requiring a booking several weeks in advance.
