It’s time to go back to school! Our little fair-haired children are ready for school, and with them the ordinary question of what to prepare for their 4 pm o’clock snacks!
Of course, there is the traditional “pain au chocolat”, also known as the “chocolatine”, as the people in the Southwest of France and Quebecers call it, with their singing accent. It will certainly be difficult to compete with this such an appreciated pastry. Our kids are really lucky, since a few years, confectioners have decided to add a second chocolate bar.
Chocolatine or Chocolate Croissant At Snack Time?
Surprisingly, we know only little about the real origin of the chocolate croissant unlike other pastries. It was apparently invented after World War II. It looked like a small stuffed bread with dark chocolate.
As for the origin of the “chocolatine” word, it is even more uncertain! So everybody is inventing his own legend. For some of us, it would come from an English word (“bread with chocolate in”). But no inhabitant in South West of France could accept such contempt: for them it would rather be a word coming from the Occitan (old French language).
Whatever its origin, and how we call it, we all know about the little chocolate croissant and appreciate it a lot.
And Why Not a Snack With Real Bread and Chocolate?
Eventually, this little chocolate croissant has been throning in the windows of bakery shops for the last 70 years, it may even become almost outdated! So it is decided, this year you will change your children snacks!
Why not choose to give our hungry children after their hard school day, a slice of deliciously crusty bread with a chocolate bar, souvenir of childhood snacks for some of us?
Our favorite “Bonon” pastry shop at 14 rue de Longchamps 75016 Paris – makes fabulous and delicious milk buns and butter brioches which will appreciate the company of our chocolate bars.
At ROY chocolatier, you will find among our chocolate bar range, the one your children will appreciate above all: the cereal bar with its crunchy taste, the chocolate bar with milk for a snack tender, the tablet with hazelnuts for a crisp taste.
We make you a promise: your children will be delighted with their new snacks and will be full of energy to do their homework!
