It's probably best to not eat all three éclairs in one sitting.

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of an éclair. An éclair is a tube-shaped cream-filled dessert. It's also the French word for lightning. The dessert is topped with icing, and while the classic is custard filling with chocolate icing, there are numerous flavors out there. Recipes for making éclairs at home are readily available, but if you don't want to spend the hours making your own, you can just pick one (or ten) up from your local bakery.
