A Guide to Celebrating National Croissant Day

January 30th is National Croissant Day, and if you’re like us, then you’re already counting down the days until you can indulge in one of these buttery, flaky treats. But did you know there are multiple types of croissants? We’re here to give you a crash course in the different varieties so that you can truly appreciate this special day.


The classic croissant – the one that instantly comes to mind when we think of this sweet breakfast treat – is the plain croissant. This bad boy stands alone with its simple, buttery flavor and crispy exterior. It can be served plain or with a variety of spreads, from jam to nutella. It pairs perfectly with your morning coffee for an unbeatable breakfast combo.

Chocolate Croissants

If a classic plain croissant isn’t quite sweet enough for your taste buds, try a chocolate croissant! This delicious pastry packs all the flaky, buttery goodness of a traditional croissant but has added chunks of dark chocolate throughout. To make it even sweeter, it is usually dusted with powdered sugar as well. Yum!

Cheese Croissants

For those looking for something savory rather than sweet, try out cheese croissants! These tasty treats combine the same light and airy texture as classic croissants but are filled with gooey cheese instead. They pair perfectly with soup or salad or can just be enjoyed on their own if you’re feeling snacky.

Almond Croissants

Almond croissants are reminiscent of French pastries and taste like they were made by a professional baker right in your own kitchen! The almond paste gives them an extra layer of sweetness without being too overpowering. To top it off (literally), they are often sprinkled with sliced almonds for added crunch and texture.

Pain Au Chocolat

Pain au chocolat is similar to a chocolate-filled pastry but shaped differently than most other baked goods; it looks like a rectangle. This unique shape gives pain au chocolat its signature look and allows each piece to hold two bars of chocolate inside!
With so many different types to choose from, how will you celebrate National Croissant Day? No matter what type you decide on – classic, chocolate-filled, cheese-filled – you won’t be disappointed because each one is just as delicious as the last. So go ahead and get baking…or better yet run out and buy some already so that you don’t miss out on celebrating this scrumptious holiday properly!
