In celebration of National Donut Day, Today's Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb sampled the craze-inducing Cronut from NYC's Dominique Ansel Bakery on air this morning. In between clearly enjoyed bites, Hoda gives a brief summary of all things Cronut: that it's a doughnut-croissant hybrid, that the lines have been epic, and that there are now scalpers.

Though the report ends around 4:37, Kathie Lee and Hoda continue sneaking bites in throughout the rest of the video. Below, Kathie Lee and Hoda boldly report on the Cronut, beginning around 1:05:
