Review: Starbucks - Chocolate Hazelnut Croissant

Starbucks' Chocolate Hazelnut Croissant features a buttery croissant filled with a chocolate hazelnut paste and topped with chopped hazelnut and chocolate crunch.

I paid $3.25 for one.

As far as the croissant portion goes it was decently buttery, moist, and just lightly crisped from the oven. It's not all that thick so the chocolate hazelnut paste came through rather well.

The paste was a little clumpy but otherwise good. It's similar in flavor to Nutella but came across with a notably stronger note of chocolate.

Up top, the combination of chopped hazelnut and chocolaty crunch candy contribute a bit of crunch as well as an extra dose of chocolate and hazelnut.

Overall, Starbucks Chocolate Hazelnut Croissant made for some good eats with a nice combination of varied texture between the paste, the croissant, and the crunchy bits.
