Hundreds of people lined up at Madison Square Park Monday morning for the epic mash-up of Cronut and Nutella.

2,700 free Nutella Cronut holes were given out to hungry New Yorkers and tourists, as well as other Nutella-covered treats, from strawberries to croissants. The delicous (and very, very crowded) event was a celebration of Nutella's 50th anniversary.

Chef Dominique Ansel created the Cronut holes especially for the occassion, and said he was happy to do so. He loved Nutella growing up.

And he still does! Guess how many Nutella Cronut holes Ansel himself ate this morning?
