    Anything you like! ::bigsmile:

    I slice them open and apply liberal quantities of butter and apricot jam.:thumb:

    But, cream cheese, nutella, jam, etc etc.

    Haha - another Poulain devotee! - bought some Poulain actual chocolate last year, ie in a bar, wrapped in silver paper etc etc - it was really quite cheap, 3 or maybe 5 bars for a few Euros, not seen it before or since. Nothing like Bournville either, just as smooth but not so sweet. Lerrrvely!

    Croissants are the staple French breakfast bread.
    They make for a healthy breakfast.
    I like them warm with butter and marmalade

    And another here :thumb: I seem to remember they used to also do tins of chocolate shavings-think it was called '1848' or similar-sprinkled on top it was superb,but not seen it recently.
