If you had a bagel this morning, you’re doing it wrong. Happy National Croissant Day!
It’s a French word, named after their crescent shape. But they supposedly originated in Austria as early as the 13th century. Now you know.
We could only find one national chain running a deal today, but it’s a pretty good one: Burger King is selling their croissant breakfast sandwiches for a PENNY.
They’ve got seven different types of “Croissan’wiches”. But of course, there’s a catch, or multiple catches. You can’t just pull up to the drive-thru with two rolls of pennies and order a hundred of them.
You have to be a member of their “Royal Perks” loyalty program, order through their website or app, spend at least $1, and it only runs until their normal breakfast cut-off, which is 10:30 A.M. at most locations.
