Klein Croissant

Completely flaky all over

The outside and inside of this croissant are all one, thus making it very flaky.

Dipping the croissant in any tasty sauce is equivalent to filling it with said tasty sauce. Less work for everyone.

Finally, the selling point for this idea making it the holiday treat of choice for many years to come, klein croissants have zero volume. How's that for diet food? Eat as many as you want.

       I don’t know if it would be possible to eat one of these, because when it’s inside you, you would also be inside it. I suspect that you would have to eat two at a time in order to avoid being inside yourself.

       Thanks, that's another great selling point. You have to atleast eat two.

       Can you make a plush version of this?

       Three jolly sailors from Blaydon-on-Tyne
They went to sea in a bottle by Klein.
Since the sea was entirely inside the hull
The scenery seen was exceedingly dull.

       they really should do urine specimen klein bottles! sorry, make myelf laugh sometimes...

       AO: actually, since it's the croissant that goes through hyperspace (or whatever they call it), you could eat one, you'd just be eating the outside at the same time as the inside.

       Who is Klein and why does it apply to pastries? But it sounds tasty.

       No, no, it will make us all croissant dip.

       Isn't a klein croissant a four dimensional object and therefore not able to be rendered in three dimensions?   

       This will make eating difficult. Tut.

       See Sartep's link, although if you look very closely, they're not *true* Klein bottles; (the 'outer' wall of the narrow tube is not continuous at the bell wall boundary).
