"Viennoiseries" refers to breakfast pastries or snacks that are sort of like a bridge between pastries and bread. They are often made from puff pastry or a richer, sweeter bread with the addition of eggs, butter, milk, cream, and sugar.

From left to right, row one: "Chausson aux pommes pur beurre"--apple filled pastry (pure butter!), "Croissant" using a butter with the AOC label ("Appellation d'Origine Controlée"--a French food labeling term that protects the style, ingredients and origin of products such as wine, cheese, and butter), "Pain au chocolat", using the same high quality butter--a puff pastry with chocolate in it, "Croissant aux abricots"--croissant with apricots, "Triangle aux amandes"--puff pastry with an almond cream filling, "Pain aux raisins"-- a sweet bread with pastry cream and raisins, "Suisse longue aux pépites de chocolat"--sweet bread with pastry cream and chocolate chips, "Torsade aux pépites de chocolat"--same as a "suisse longue", but twisted. And finally, many of these are available in "mini".

This is not an exhaustive list. There are more! My favorite? That is very hard decision! I really like the almond pastry (triangle aux amandes), which often comes as an almond croissant as well. But if I'm in the mood for chocolate, then a suisse longue. But sometimes a fruit-based viennoiserie is just the thing, and then the apple-filled pastry, the chausson aux pommes, is perfect. You see where I'm going with this!

Notice the listing of allergens next to the product. This is new!
