I personally love croissants, although they are quite fattening. What is a croissant? The croissant is a crescent shaped French (Vienna- Style) pastry. It has many layers and each layer of the dough has a layer of butter; as an outcome, the pastry is super flaky and light. There are many varieties of croissants, butter, cheese, etc.
Last weekend, as I happened to be a one of the new locations of the Aroma Espresso Bar (inside Markville mall), they had fresh baked, just out of the oven croissants. My mum couldn’t resist. We had a full avocado sandwich made with the croissants. They were heavenly. Melted in your mouth, crispy, flaky, air-ness. I was temped to get another, but after finishing half my Mango Kale juice (which btw, was also delicious, healthy and cleansing), I didn’t think I could eat anymore.
The next day when I went into work I was still craving for that delicious croissant, so I bought one from Tim’s. It was not the same thing in anyway. I have to be fair, it definitely wasn’t a fresh made croissant, but the density of the pastry just didn’t feel like it lived up to the infamous French crescent bread.
There is a big gap in the price as well, $2.45 at Aroma’s and $1.60 at Tim’s. I guess sometimes you really do pay for quality, but to be fair, I’m going to do a comparison post later. It will be fresh baked Tim’s croissant Vs. Aroma’s fresh baked croissant. Come back soon for the review.
Who will be Off the List?
