- French chocolate is also very good and you can find numerous variations of it, in the supermarket there is a whole aisle just dedicated to different chocolate bars, not to mention candies and other chocolate sweets. And you can find quite a few that are cheap but still quite good.
- Good French bread is expensive, so I just buy the baguette. Not bad, but I like stocky wholewheat type of breads and other variations which are too expensive at the moment.
- I also tried goat cheese, which I didn't like that much, although the French think it is quite special.
On the whole though, I find amazing how slender French people are, given all the chocolate and croissants, and the butter, cream, etc that they love to cook everything with. I once read a hillarious article asking exactly, "where do all the croissants go?" I still don't know the answer, I constantly see a majority of perked-up, slender people, along with a lovely abundance of blue eyes of every tonality you can imagine.
