Petitpot Now Available in So Cal

Pin It


I love getting packages,
especially when it's new food items to try.

 It must be something French...

Hence the "Bonjour" reference


 And Yummm!


It's a sampler 
of pot de creme
from Petitpot.

Without going through all of the
details, it's a type of custard.


The lids made it easy to identify.


 On National Vanilla Pudding Day,
this is what I'm celebrating with...



You can see the specks of
Madagascar vanilla beans. 


See What Jay Eats...

Yes, we had a Petit Pot tasting.

I had the pleasure of a pastry chef joining 
me in the tasting.


Great packaging
in re-usable glass jars.

They're all gluten-free and certified organic by CCOF
(California Certified Organic Farmers)



The Dark Chocolate
was really good and one of
my favorites.

Made with dark Belgian chocolate,
70% cacao.

Had a nice dark chocolate finish to it.
Something that was a nice surprise
for a pudding/custard.

The Salted Caramel
had a nice caramel flavor,
but I missed the salt or
too light I didn't taste any.

The Lemon Curd

Lemon is one of my all-time favorites.
Made with organic California lemon juice,
it had a nice lemon tartness.

I wasn't a fan of the texture of this one,
a bit too liquidity for me.
My friend the pastry chef said she has an
idea to use this with a dish she has in mind.

The Strawberry & Cream
was the same consistency.
Good rich strawberry flavor.

When I think of pot de creme,
the Vanilla is the closest to what I know
(in my mind anyway).
Great flavor and texture.


All 5 flavors are great tasting and can
see why they're popular in Northern California.

Now Available 
in selected Southern California
Whole Foods Markets

(Arroyo, Brea, Jamboree, Fairfax, El Segundo,
Playa Vista, Venice, Downtown LA, Glendale, 
La Jolla, and Irvine)


 Petitpot also sent me some 
of their cookies.

BTW, they went great with the pot de creme.



Great idea,
inside of the cookie boxes.



Merci
Petitpot




NOTE:  I was invited to sample these products.
I thank Petitpot for the sample tasting.
