Yum! Almond croissants from Fairway!

I got an almond croissant today from Fairway ( was the Stamford store, but is it fair to assume all the croissants are the same from store to store? If not, banish me to another board I guess).

Anyway, it's perfect! I just warmed it up for 20 seconds in my microwave at home. Lots of filling, slightly stick outside over the sliced almonds on the exterior.

Will report on the chocolate one I got if no one else in the house grabs it first.

  1. Aren't they great?! Has been my little "secret" the past few months ever sense I tried one at the Westchester store. And the almond cookie they sell is also amazing (the thick one shaped like a croissant).

      Where are the cookies sold? In the bakery too?

      Yet another reason to make the big trip more often.

    2. My daughter loves their almond croissants. I find that the filling can be variable.. sometimes they're more generous than others. You can typically tell how full they are when picking them up to put in the bag. Also not all stores make the top sticky. My daughter prefers them unsticky.

      The chocolate croissants are just OK. The frozen ones from TJ's are MUCH better.

        Thanks, I'll have to look for the frozen ones next time I'm at TJ's. I agree, the chocolate one (had it today) was merely okay. Hope to get more almond ones in the next week or so.

          Wow, the frozen ones from TJ's are actually good? There's a revelation.
          I thought that freezing a croissant would be taboo to be quite honest.

            Perhaps she means the ones that are frozen unbaked. They are very good. You take them out of the freezer the night before you want to have them, and you bake them in the morning. They have good pain au chocolot too.

              It's the frozen pain au chocolat's that I am talking about from TJ's.
