This “Better-For-You” Croissant Has An 8,000-Person Waiting List

Of all things in the world that could possibly have a waiting list, it’s a pretty safe bet that most people wouldn't expect the humble croissant to be one of them. However, with over $1 billion in retail sales, croissants are the go-to carb for a ton of people who love indulging in its buttery goodness. Now imagine that dollar figure going up simply because of a guilt-free or better-for-you croissant. Enter Hero Croissants, a product from Hero Bread that boasts fewer calories, only 2g of carbs, and high fiber and protein — all without sacrificing the taste of the 24 layers of buttery, flaky goodness. It’s no wonder the demand for Hero Croissants has skyrocketed since is initial release. In fact, there’s actually 8,000 names on waiting list for them. After three product drops that have completely sold out, the hype from fans is starting to resemble the Cabbage Patch Doll craze of the ‘80s. It seems that all the goodness of a croissant minus the high calories and carbs is enough to send croissant lovers into a frenzy. There’s no release date yet on the next Hero Croissants drop, but you can put yourself on the waiting list here.
