International Croissant Day 2022: Warning don’t read this while you’re hungry!

Reading Time: 6 minutes

It’s International Croissant Day 2022 and to celebrate we’re sharing with you some of the special croissants you can find around Australia. Instead of the standard butter or almond croissants, which are also very delicious when done right, we’ve compiled some of the more original croissants you can find.


If we’ve missed your favourite place, let us know the croissant creation and the place!

Adelaide’s The Sugar Man is opening his own store on Hutt Street at the end of next month so we can experience his creations all year round.

His favourite croissant is the Self Saucing Chocolate Pudding croissant. Delicious twice baked pain au chocolat filled with chocolate pudding, topped with dark chocolate ganache and shards of 64% dark chocolate. YUM!

His croissant flavours are inspired by childhood nostalgia, seasonal produce or even seasonal desserts. As long as it’s delicious.

We’ve already mentioned their January specials in their entry under Brisbane above.

This is their take on the iconic ham and cheese croissant.

They say what makes is so special is

“careful selection of ingredients; @hagensorganics ham in Melbourne and @gillys_smallgoods in Brisbane, Swiss Gruyère and a cheeky little hint of seeded mustard, it’s the RATIO of these ingredients to pastry.”
