Maison Georges Larnicol ♥

Eating a Maison Georges Larnicol kouignette is #56 on my Paris To-Do list, so I was ecstatic when I stumbled upon his shop on my way up to Sacre Coeur.  

Oh how I love it when the universe conspires to give my heart's desires! :)

Also this super cute Miss Chocolate t-shirt that I so wanted to buy. 
Unfortunately, it didn't come in my XXXL size. Pfffffttt.

And of course, the #56 on my list - the kouignettes

I bought three to try: Chocolate, Almond and Pistachio
If there is one thing you need to know about kouignettes, it is that they are loaded, and I mean
SERIOUSLY, EXTREMELY, FRIGHTENINGLY loaded, with butter and sugar.

SOOOOOO sweet I couldn't taste the chocolate at all!

You know I love anything sugary but this was just waaaaayyyyy over the top.
It was dry and tough and cardboard-y, too. :(


I was too afraid to even touch the pistachio kouignette.


Suddenly I was homesick for Chef Cyrille's kouign aman.
