Taste Testing Petit Pot French Desserts
I love getting packages in the mail especially those that involve food. You can probably imagine my delight to receive a package as cute as this filled with Petit Pot French Desserts! Petit Pot was founded by Frenchmen Maxime Pouvreau who sources his chocolate from Belgium and his fleur de sel from Brittany, France. Yum!
Petit pot desserts are made from quality ingredients. They are gluten-free and handcrafted locally in the Bay Area. They even come in these cute glass, reusable jars. The best way to describe them would be little flan/pudding cups made with unique, but really good ingredients. Here are the flavors I tried:Dark Chocolate, Lemon Curd, Strawberry & Cream, Salted Caramel, and Vanilla flavors.
The pots are creamy and not too sweet. They're approximately 300 calories each. The Dark Chocolate Pot de Crème had a nice very rich dark chocolate flavor. The Vanilla Pot de Crème had a very strong vanilla bean flavor. I loved both flavors as pudding on their own, but they tasted even better dipped with Petit Pot cookies. I was really thrown off by the Strawberry & Cream flavor. By itself, the flavor wasn't too strong, but once I dipped some of their French cookies with the pots the flavor was completely different. It complemented the cookie so well! At this point, I decided to try each flavor dipped with a cookie as well as by itself. I love salted caramel so of course was one of my faveorites. The Salted Caramel Pot de Crème had an intense French sea salt aftertaste that I loved. For the Lemon Curd Pot de Crème, I was worried that the taste would be too tart. Luckily, the lemon custard had a nice tangy, lemony zest that went well with the lemon cookies.
Petit Pot 's French cookies were amazing. They crumbled and melted in your mouth. I could eat them all day. Petit Pot's cookies are adapted the famous French butter cookie (sable) and topped with Fleur de Sel to get that savory and sweet taste! They come in three flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, and LemonThumbs up for Petit Pot! Give them a try!
You can get their custards and cookies through Whole Foods in Nor Cal, their storefront, or online through GoodEggs, Munchery, Grubmarket or Farmbox, or get them through your local Farmigo pickup spot!
