I was feeling a bit French on Monday.. I was all for a standard plain croissant but my excitement cranked up a notch when I saw these Finest Dark Chocolate Orange Croissants in Tesco. The pack of 2 cost £1.80 but are often on a 2 for £2.50 offer.
Filled with rich Belgian dark chocolate & Brazilian orange oil, hand decorated with a dusting of icing sugar.
The croissants smelt amazing! The zesty orange scent greeted me immediately upon opening the pack. The pastry was soft, flaky and had a lovely buttery taste. I am glad Tesco didn't scrimp on the filling. I could definitely taste the orange oil in the rich chocolate. It was perfectly balanced and not overpowering or fake, thankfully. Although Belgian chocolate on top was a nice extra, it was a little brittle and most ended up on the floor sadly - cutting it probably didn't help to be fair!
These croissants are utter perfection. If you like chocolate orange, I can pretty much guarantee, you will love these too. I would buy them again tomorrow. It's a 4.5 out of 5 from me.. OUI OUI!
