Croissants: the Staple of a French Breakfast

I think by now, most people know what a croissant is. I mean you can buy them at Starbucks! So it's no secret that this French pastry is a world wide hit. But when you go to France, you have to do it. You have to try a croissant. You haven't tried real croissants until you go to a French boulangerie and get one. 

Croissants are usually eaten in the morning, but to be honest, any time of day is a good time for a croissant. People like to dip them in their coffee or hot chocolate in the morning, which is a genius idea! You can buy them in most places, but the best are the fresh ones that come from the boulangeries. If you're going to do something, do it right. Go to the boulangerie.

So why are French croissants so much better than the ones abroad? Well in America they almost taste burnt. They also have weird stale taste that make me nauseous just thinking about it. They just taste way too processed. But in France it's different. Croissants are cooked perfectly so the outside is crunchy and flaky but not burnt. And the inside, oh man, the inside is my favorite part. It's soft, fully cooked dough that melts in your mouth and tastes of butter. Yep it always comes down to butter with me doesn't it? And that is why croissants became so famous, the perfect combination of soft and crunchy, sweet and salty.
