I love the Trader Joeís frozen croissants that rise overnight and taste great after 20 minutes in the oven. Plain chocolate and almond choices. Yummy.

my big question - why doesnít anyone else sell this type of product? Iíve never seen it at Safeway or Whole Foods... supposedly isnít at Costco.

There is a brand that is very very good. I don't recall what it was called, they aren't cheap, and I believe I bought them at WF in Berkeley. You must "proof" them (i.e., take them out of the freezer the evening prior), ready to bake in the AM. (I'm out of the USA right now and won't be in WF again until sometime next year.) Clear plastic bag with a (IIRC) blue label.

Also the TJs one also needs proofing.

I can’t find a TJs thread in this forum - we should have one like we have the Costco and Apple threads in Omni.

Yes, https://www.picard.fr/on/demandware....ault/Home-Show, you can even do a whole dinner using their frozen foods.

I loved visiting Picard in Paris in 2005 - the shop assistants got so freaked out when we took pictures with a digital canon. We still have nothing like a Picard.
