I'm not completely fair when it comes to other countries' foods. I found the fact that this treat I purchased in France had a Mexican theme to be really strange. I say that, but I don't find a Taco Bell in Canada to be weird at all. I don't mind that they make Japanese-type cartoons in North America, but a guy with a sombrero speaking in French seems to be very odd.

That's why I bought this little cake - it threw me off culturally. As a treat, it's nothing that spectacular at all; it's cake with chocolate chips. Actually, the chocolate chips are pretty good, and fairly abundant so I guess that's cool. Nothing's worse than biting into a cake and expecting a sweet treat inside, only to be disappointed. (I find this particularly annoying when a cream centre is involved.)

I guess if I got this in my lunch I'd be a happy little boy. But I'm still not sure about the French hombre on the front.
