National Chocolate Eclair Day is held annually on June 22nd. A great day to enjoy the wonderful cream-filled pastry.

Did You Know?

  • The dough of the chocolate eclair is the same as that used for profiterole, is typically piped into an oblong shape with a pastry bag and baked until it is crisp and hollow inside.
  • The eclair originated during the nineteenth century in France where it was called “pain à la duchesse” until 1850.Eclair means “lightening” in French. Many people believe that eclairs got their name from the traditional frosting that resembles a lightning bolt.
  • Some pastry chains in the US and Canada market Long Johns as eclairs. Long Johns are not identical with eclairs, as Long Johns use doughnut pastry, which is yeast-risen or batter-derived, rather than choux dough, which is steam-puffed.
