There is a reason the world's best restaurants employ pastry chefs: No one can resist a delicious pastry.
Whether it's a breakfast pastry, an addition to afternoon tea or a decadent follow-up to a meal, pastries are temptresses even the strongest-willed cannot resist — especially when they hail from Europe! (Just try to pass a bakery window filled with these treats, we dare you!)
But which country has the best pastries? We left it to social media to decide (because, even after taste tests, it's just too tough for us to call!). These are the pastries that appear in social media hashtags the most, working as a makeshift decider for our ranking. But, honestly, we'll let your sweet tooth decide.
