French like food in little cups. I’m not exaggerating. When I would watch people walk out of the market, everyone had yogurt or pudding or something similar in their shopping bags. It was pretty funny.

Look at the yogurt section at the supermarket.

And the pudding section. Insane!

The yogurt was so good. The fruit tasted unbelievably fresh in the yogurt. This pink grapefruit yogurt was pretty tasty…but every flavor was awesome.

I love chocolate mousse (and have since I can remember). So, I love a country where you can buy it in little cups at the grocery store. Oh, and it tastes GOOD.

These little custard cups were delish as well. And the little glass jars…so cute!

    Hahahaha! I’m absolutely in love with your blog. And entirely jealous of your trip and your food!

    Those little cups are completely adorable. I so wish that would catch on in America for everything! You just feel so dainty eating from a little cup!

    Love all of it!

    all of this is taking me back. i love the yogurt section in french grocery stores. yogurt has never been the same back in the states. i also used to get this chocolate mousse pudding stuff when i lived in france that was called ‘damnation’. it was awesome.

    I am LOVING your pictures from Paris. I’m half-French and lived in Paris until I was 10. My mom still lives there and we try and visit every year. I still miss the yogurt and the puddings. There this one creme fraiche based chocolate pudding called Danette – it is to die for. I’m forwarding your post to my sisters!

    I’m here on Chefdruck’s recommendation. (She’s my sister.)
    Wow did your post make me homesick!
    I just bought some of those Whips yogurt, chocolate mousse flavor, on the off chance that it would almost taste like those little cups of chocolate mousse… but no cigar.

    You HAVE to try the La Laitiere lemon yogurts. They are the BEST.

    I’m coming back to see what else you dig up in France!

  6. I just borrowed a couple of these pics (I hope you don’t mind) and linked back to you on a review I did about Fage yogurt.
