Croissants (and Baguettes) are one of a few things that are extraordinary in Paris
(despite our “small world” global economy)
My preferred Croissant (chocolate) is probably at McDonald’s near Le Louvre, called a Pain au Chocolate (Chocolate Bread)
The Croissant at a Montmartre bar that serves Mussels and Pizza (where I had a petit dejeuner “breakfast” before watching the Spiderman movie) – is also a Croissant that I fondly remember
So . . .
Why do they serve that chewy, rubbery, gummy croissant on Air France on the overnight trip to Paris?
(Answer: probably, so there are not a million flaky croissant crumbs and the seats and floor to clean-up)
