I don't like the taste of croissants. How about a strawberry flavor?

With a name like 'Smuckers', it has to be good http://www.smuckers.com

       Surely, even though they were flavoured strawberry, they would still taste of croissant *as well*?   

       Anyway, I would have thought the main objection to croissants is that they're flaky as hell, and by the time you've finished eating one, a good 10% is on your plate, taunting you. (If that hasn't happened to you, you haven't eaten a real croissant, BTW.)   

       Besides, there's an easy way to have a strawberry croissant. Take a croissant. Split half-ways. Spread with strawberry jam (and whatever else you choose to put in your croissant). Eat.

       Flavored croissants get fish and flavored communion wafers get croissants?

       When I was a teen, one of my favorite munchies was pain-de-chocolate, a French delight consiting of a rectangle of croissant dough (nice and flaky) filled with a fudgy, yummy chocolate filling. Ooey-gooey DELECTABLE! Probably 1,000 Weight Watchers Points though!

       I don't know if it's true for the OP, but there are plenty of people who've never really had a decent croissant. I can't blame anyone for not likeing the croissant analogues that they use for such things as the "Croissandwich." And the ones you buy at your local megamart were made on an industrial scale with industrial ingredients, partially baked, frozen, and then baked again at the store. That doesn't necessarily make them bad, but it's a good guess that they weren't made with the highest quality ingredients.   

       Go find a really good French bakery and try a croissant there, perhaps with a little jam. You might be surprised.
