Scented... toilet paper?

Fruity, fresh and colorful. That wraps up toilet paper in France. Really, scented toilet paper is all the rage. Who wouldn't want a citrus-flavored bum?

Pain au chocolat in a can? Vraiment? Because there aren't enough boulangeries in France, right? Hey, they probably don't taste half bad.

You eat WHAT?

Yup, that's horse meat, friends. Watching Mr. Ed will never be the same. And let's not forget about rabbit. Mmmmm.

Looks like it might taste good?

Nothing like some yummy duck with olives to kick off a meal (if you're out of foie gras, that is). Spread it on some toast and enjoy!

So fancy, so French

We have brownie mixes in the US but in France, you can whip up some macarons via a handy box mix. Forget expensive bakery creations -- just grab a box of raspberry or chocolate-flavored macarons and get baking!
