Best Éclair ever?

It's not rare to find my chocolate addiction interfering with my day. There are some mornings that I crave chocolate as soon as I'm done breakfast. If I don't do anything about it, chocolate consumes my thoughts until I finally get some. Many times I've been in meetings where all I can think of is "I hope this ends soon so I can go find a cookie". 

Last Friday I decided to put an early end to that craving by stopping at La Brioche on my way to work. I never know what to expect to find when I go in (I don't go in that often), but something caught my eye immediately. 

An éclair. 

I knew it wouldn't last once I got to work so I took a photo of it while waiting at a stop light.

Oh and this just wasn't any éclair. It was filled with chocolate. 

It took all I could to keep it in one piece until I got to work. I refuse to eat something as beautiful as that while driving. 

Sadly, it was gone in about 4 bites. But those 4 bites were the highlight of the week for my mouth. The chocolate filling was absolutely delicious. I savored each piece until there was no more left.

It was a great way to start the last workday of the week.
