[Food Review]- Délifrance’s Award-Winning Heritage Croissant
I was introduced to the world of croissants at a very young age and back then, no other croissants could beat the ones from Délifrance. Even after so many years, I still love Délifrance’s signature butter croissant and more recently, I got very hooked to Délifrance’s Heritage Croissant, the highly commended enriched version Délifrance’s signature butter croissant, which sells close to one million pieces annually in recent times.
Tastier, healthier, and crispier, the Heritage Croissant is Délifrance’s answer to other challengers in the croissant market and it is the only product in Singapore to receive three Golden Stars in a blind taste test in June 2013 by a panel of experts from the world-renowed International Taste & Quality Institute in Brussels.
During the evaluation, the Heritage Croissant was lauded for having high quality butter and a harmonious fully flavoured finish, coupled with a lovely presentation and good bite texture. The judges complimented its crisp texture and appetising interior, and also praised it for being a genuine top-quality croissant with a splendid taste, delicate with a nice tasty finish.

Techniques such as slow kneading and gentle rolling are used in the making of the Heritage Croissant and they are naturally inspired by artisanal French baking methods taught in Ecole de Boulangerie et de Patisserie.
The Heritage Croissant is made from top quality French ingredients such as finely milled premium wheat flour from Grands Moulins de Paris, which contains higher dietary fibre and several vitamins including folate, riboflavin, and Vitamins B1, B3, and B5.
Other ingredients include fresh butter from Brittany, a renowned butter-producing region in France and certified Label Rogue eggs which are laid by hens reared on 100% plant-based feed, minerals and vitamins including 50% minimum cereals with no artificial colouring.
These fine ingredients ensure that every Heritage Croissant packs a delicate flavour and fragrance that is quintessentially French.
Our Personal Opinion/Review of Délifrance’s Heritage Croissant
Jacqueline and I really love the Heritage Croissant. It is so buttery, flaky, and crispy that you can eat it on its own. As only authentic French ingredients are used, the result is a deliciously flaky croissant that literally melts in the mouth.
Available at all Délifrance outlets, the Heritage Croissant will retail at a special introductory price of SGD$2.50 a piece until 28 February and from 1 March onwards, it will be selling for SGD$2.90 a piece, or SGD$8.90 for a pack of four.
Having said that, the Heritage Croissant also comes in two savoury flavours [Turkey Bacon & Chicken Ham, and Almond Poulet] and two mouth-watering limited edition sweet flavours [Cream Cheese with Strawberry Toppings, and Hazelnut Chocolate with Almond Flakes].
Turkey Bacon & Chicken Ham Heritage Croissant, SGD$7.50 a piece
Almond Poulet Heritage Croissant, SGD$7.50 a piece
Having tried all four, we would highly recommend the Turkey Bacon & Chicken Ham Heritage Croissant and as well as both the sweet flavours [Cream Cheese with Strawberry Toppings, and Hazelnut Chocolate with Almond Flakes]. The savoury flavours will cost SGD$7.50 a piece and the sweet flavours will cost SGD$3.90 a piece and it is available at all Délifrance outlets except Délifrance Coronation Plaza.
Cream Cheese with Strawberry Toppings Heritage Croissant, SGD$3.90 a piece
