the Pepito $6.50

Yes! Here I am back at Les Gourmands Bakery for another French sugar fix. This time I got a big 'un called the "Pepito." It is sugar bread with an inside filing of custard and mini chocolate chips. At $6.50 it might fall on the pricey side of things for a baked good, but for the most part, it was the size of a sub sandwich which is the trade off when considering the price of actual sandwiches in this town. The dough, while puffed up, was still thick, sweet and bready. The custard filling was ample throughout and the chocolate chips were of the dark variety helping keep it from being overly sweet all together. It really was like a having a custard sub sandwich and there is more than enough for two people to equally share and enjoy this so I won't quibble too much about the price. Whenever I take about having desserts with heft, this is the kind of thing I'm talking about. Hearty bread, lots of filling and just the right kick of sugar that when I'm done gorging on it, I really feel satisfied with what I've had. This is more than just an afternoon snack as you may be prone to a nap attack afterwards. Best to have a bit at a time and spread the sweet joy of it throughout your day. And here's some food news to wash it all down with.
