Cronut creator demands NW La pastry name-change

Posted: Updated:

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A northwest Louisiana restaurant's croissant-doughnut hybrid is getting a new name - Juggernut, Highlander or Steve.

Lizz Bowen and her husband, Scott Roebuck, got a cease-and-desist letter last week from Cronut creator Dominique Ansel. He told them not to use any variation of his trademarked name at Sevendipity Cafe in Shreveport's Highland neighborhood.

Bowen tells The Times (http://bit.ly/1myyIx3) she's thrilled that Ansel knows about her variation, but baffled that he cares what she does in Shreveport.

Her pastry's former name was pronounced like Cronut but used a hyphen and spelled the first syllable c-r-e-a-u-x.

A name-the-pastry contest on the restaurant's Facebook site drew dozens of names including Fais-do-donut and 7Nut.

Bowen posted the finalists late Sunday.

The winner will get a whatever-it-turns-out-to-be every day for a year.
