1731 ~ is that the number of calories in one slice? Seriously though, it still amazes me to read of shops and businesses that have been operating for centuries. They are doing something right!

Well, if you don't eat it every day... I would rather spend my calories here than on the mundane chocolate. These pastries are so worth it!

It's always been my understanding that there are no calories in pastries eaten while traveling...

At least we're able to appreciate your picture and we won't gain an ounce!

Luckily, my metabolism is so good, I can eat anything I want.

I've tried pain au chocolat all over Paris and I still say Stohrer makes the best ones. (Just to make sure, I ate 15 of them on my last 3-week trip, as well as a few from other places, and yep, Stohrer win.)

We don't count the calories when it comes to chocolate as we love it.
