She didn't have to speak, her eyes said it all, like they always do. In this case they said: "Come taste my crispy outside and my sinful, creamy dark chocolate inside". I was sold hook, line, and sinker as I delved into the Mona Lisa chocolate eclair from Fauchon. Those rousing eyes tempted me so many times while staring into the showcase and I was always strong enough not to give in. This time I was on a mission and I finally toppled in order to satisfy my readers and my longtime curiosity. Was she worth it? YES, every last bite, even though I only had two or three. Were her words accurate? YES! The outside was crispy and the inside pure, velvety, chocolate heaven.
