Sugar Rush: Almond Croissant at Mrs. London’s, Saratoga Springs, New York

Yesterday, Serious Eats posted my Sugar Rush post about the almond croissant at Mrs. London’s. An excerpt:

The almond croissant comes plated with a fork and a knife, but not one to be dainty, I dive in with my hands. The edges are thin and crisp, like a lace doily, but as I approach the center, the croissant becomes thicker and chewier though still flaky and with some crunch. Seemingly subjected to a major snowfall, powdered sugar gets everywhere, including the fingers, and when I lick them, there’s a little tackiness from the syrup and an ongoing sense of almond flavor. Sticky-sweet, this croissant may be the actual object of desire of Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me.”
