    Seriously? What a rude cashier worker. Bitch. Why on earth did she even ask that question then?!
    I deff would've called her a bitch and talked to the manager, file a complaint against her.
    You cant expect everyone to know your countries food and drinks, not to mention paris is a very tourist-y place, so youre gonna get foreigners from all over the place

    How do we drink espresso? (There's no "x" in that word.)

    That's easy. WITH SUGAR.

    That's also a Macaron. A Macaroon (with two o's) is a coconut confection that's very different.

    j'adore comment les français se battent pour le nom du "pain au chocolat" avec chocolatine et pain au chocolat alors qu'un étranger arrive en france et appel ça croissant au chocolat c'est tout simplement ça, c'est un croissant au chocolat

      TheZohan 11 days ago

      SmellyPotatoes Mc Le croissant et "le pain au chocolat" on la même pâte mais le croissant a une forme différent et n'a pas de chocolat donc pour moi c'est un croissant au chocolat

      momo glo t'inquiètes pas! Paris is full of wonderful people and the Parisian snobby thing is just a stereotype. I want you to enjoy France. Eat as much as you want and don't count calories!

    Hey, you!
    Love your videos and, since I'm from (and in) Paris, I was particularly interested in this one, and I have a few things to say. First, you need to realise that, when Parisian bakeries get noticed in the press or because one of their products won a prize, they start receiving a lot of tourist attention, which in turn tends to influence the type of products that they showcase. This can sometimes lead to "innovations" that aim to catch the foreigner's eye, but stray away from "The Sacred Path" of authenticity. Lol! For example, your macaron "montage" is an attempt to merge the heavenly-and-world-famous macaron with the ever-so-gracious shape of a less-renowned pastry called Religieuse. Next time, you have to taste the REAL THING : a montage of two creamy puff pastries, with the same shape, but covered in CHOCOLATE (see what you missed, now? I know you love chocolate). This pastry was meant as a tribute to a group of nuns who sacrificed their life to defend their convent during the revolution riots. Same logic for what they blasphemously sold you as a Paris-Brest. (I have to say, this one is less funny to me : The Paris-Brest is a Sacred Thing gifted to humans by God himself, on a day when He was in a very good mood.) But because the name and shape of ECLAIRS are what tourists come for, they sacrificed the lovely round shape of my favourite pastry to the altar of big money. The good news is I'm not bitter because they seem to have at least respected the golden rule : light, delicious praliné cream. The bad news is normally, there's no chocolate, which is why it seemed overly sweet when you tried it. On this one, I feel that they did you wroooong! Another thing that I liked in your video is your taste-test of the baguette. Made me very proud. because it's really as simple and as awesome as that. If you want the holy trinity, you can always have a good fruit jam, butter and coffee. Try it and see if the biterness of the coffee is not tamed by the buttery and sweet mixture gracing the bread. Better yet : try dunking it! Same principle for croissants (at least two, my friend!) and coffee. You need some jam on them, or some good sugar in your coffee. And you need to dunk! Let us (Parisian fans) know when you plan to come. In the mean time, keep up the good work and take care of yourself!

    What kind of heresy is that ? Chocolat croissant ??? No, no, no, does not compute ! It's Chocolatine, do not believe those primitive saxons who say pain au chocolat or croissant au chocolat.

      +MonsieurNarlan I was in Toulouse for studies, everything was fine, but the chocolatine was the real disruptive abomination. But it doesn't matter anymore, because we already won: http://couteaux-et-tirebouchons.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Carte-pain-au-chocolat-chocolatine-415x400.png.

      Funny accent you said ? I sense jealousy and bitterness in your poisonous words. It's time for you to embrace the glorious sound of Chocolatine. Fill your lungs with pure air, and feast your ears with this wonderfull word. You'll be a better, happier, and smarter man.

    • Jounayd Id Salah
      Jounayd Id Salah 4 months ago

      You know that "chocolatine" comes from "chocolate in" (and really)? Which is treason. (For foreign readers, chocolatine (some parts of the South) vs pain au chocolat is our own Civil War, the weird people from the South with funny accents, and the great, talented and cool people of the North. Decide which side you're with).

    Very sweet ! But really, we never eat éclair or Paris-Brest or macaron for breakfast !!! They're desserts!!!! As for croissant and other " viennoiseries " we usually save them for thé week-end. Weekday typiczl french breakfast is baguette with butter and jam. Some people, like myself, eat cheese or ham aswell.

    what I like to is to cut open a plain croissant and add cheese and ham and then put in the oven a few minutes (microwave will get the thing a bit soggy). put some béchamel inside too if you can ;)
