My friend Anna gushed about The City Bakery's Pretzel Croissant like every time I saw her. So one Saturday morning I went in and got one. I was completely disappointed, my taste buds were confused - the texture of a croissant, the salty goodness and coloring of a pretzel - what is this!? Maybe my problem was that I decided to eat the flaky thing while on the street and then while walking through Bed Bath and Beyond, as if that isn't overwhelming enough. So last week I gave it a second chance. I was prepared for the confusing prezzant, as I like to call it. This time I ate sitting down (a more appropriate choice - so the flakes went on my desk, not my clothing), and I truly enjoyed it. The salty flavor, the buttery flakiness that every delicious croissant must have - I scarfed the sucker down. It was definitely the best thing I had in my mouth last week.
On another note, Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day everyone! Below is a clip from The Cosby Show, featuring the family sitting in silence listening to Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech. It is a special moment, that always leaves me a little teary-eyed.
