( Croissants draw you in for their flaky, buttery character and are scrumptuous enough on their own—but give 'em a flavor twist (by way of toppings and/or fillings) and you've got yourself a real killer. Chocolate and almond paste are some popular options, but how's about a filling with more Asian flair—like one inspired by those brown sugar milk boba drinks? Here's one to try: Tiger Sugar and Ijo Bakery have partnered up to bring us the Brown Sugar Almond Croissant that you can try at selected branches.
