Re: Authentic gourmet croissants

I thought they were ok.  It might be more that I'm probably just not much of a croissant person than anything about the actual product.  But the ones I've eaten were perfectly good.

 

I had purchased the ones they had early on.  They arrive flat and puff up when you bake them.   This was several, or more, years ago and I actually still have some of them from when I got AD.    What I did was to vacuum-seal them in packets of two.  Since they are vac-sealed, after all these years, they are still perfectly good.  I baked a couple of them a few weeks ago and you'd never know they were in the freezer for many years.

 

The ones I really loved were the ones that came filled with raspberry and lemon.  Half were raspberry and half were lemon.  They were awesome!  I actually vac-sealed those (one of each per pack) and recently found some in one of my freezers.  Woot!  Smiley Happy   By far, those were my favs.  I don't think they've had those for quite a few years now.

Re: Authentic gourmet croissants

Williams Sonoma has frozen ones that are fabulous.  They have a nice variety of size and type.

 

Trader Joes also has a nice selection and they are great too.   I've had both and prefer TJ because you don't have to thaw them out the night before.

Re: Authentic gourmet croissants

I ordered these, based on what ya'll said and the fact I just wanted to see if they were anywhere close to what I had at Cheddars. My UPS guy brought my package earlier today. I just baked two of these and they are so, so delicious. I'm gonna have to take a few frozen ones to my folks. YUM!

 

I have never had anything like this, that I didn't get in a restaurant.
