Don’t call it a cronut. Jack in the Box’s newest menu item, dubbed the “Croissant Donut,” was introduced this morning to the masses, though the fast food restaurant has apparently been testing the tasty treat in California since June.

Dusted with cinnamon sugar, the Croissant Donut has a hint of sweetness without overwhelming your taste buds. The combination has enough croissant to add more chew to your bite without the heaviness of a cakey donut.

Jack in the Box’s take on the cronut is meant to be “pop-able, portable and shareable,” though you may not want to share after one bite.

Three go for for $1.99, or 89 cents each. If you’re looking to satisfy your appetite, go with three.

Jack in the Box also debuted two new breakfast burritos — the “Meat Lovers” and the “Grande Sausage.”

The Meat Lovers Burrito combines sausage, ham and bacon with eggs and melted cheese.

The Grande Sausage Burrito packs in eggs, sausage, hash browns, bacon and Jack in the Box’s own “creamy” Sriracha sauce.

"Starting your day right with a hearty breakfast is key, and we're proud to offer bigger and better menu items for our guests," Iwona Alter, vice president of Menu Strategy & Innovation said in a statement.

“Our new Breakfast Burritos and Croissant Donuts give our guests great new options -- whether it's something savory or something sweet, we'll definitely make sure it's craveable and delicious!”

If you want to get your hands on a Croissant Donut, act fast; they’re only available for a limited time.
