On Friday May 9th, 2014, Long Island’s K98.3 Morning Show hosts Steve Harper and Leeana Karlson issued an on-air challenge – if Manhattan has its Cronut™ and New Jersey and Philadelphia have their Donali, why can’t a Long Island bakery come up with its own unique hybrid pastry? Sweet Surrender Bake House answered the call and on Monday May 12th unveiled their Crannoli™ – a hybrid pastry combining a croissant, donut and cannoli, infused with cannoli cream and topped with a thick layer of chocolate frosting and pieces of crunchy cannoli shells to the K98.3 Morning Show hosts as their listeners eagerly tuned in. Steve and Leeana were rendered speechless on air and an instant classic – the Crannoli™ was born!
Since then, Sweet Surrender has introduced a variety of special Crannoli™ – delicious versions of the original such as Jelly, Caramel, Rainbow, Chocolate Mousse, Red Velvet, Coconut. Each is offered on a limited run basis along with the Original Crannoli™. And the best part…stay tuned because there are still many more flavors on the horizon!
