It is in reality one chou and many choux.
Choux: choux pastry (one of my favorite desert from when I was little)
Why: n Co ?
Let’s be studious for a minute and learn a French grammar rule kids love in France.
Like in english, French adds “s” to nouns when plural.
If only French was this simple… Here is the rule I am talking about with Choux n Co:
Most nouns that end in –ou take –s in the plural. Excluding those ones ending with –x.
- bijoux (jewelry)
- cailloux (stone)
- choux (you know now)
- genoux (knee)
- hiboux (owls)
- joujoux (toys)
- poux (lice)
It exists many songs about this rule. It also is a symbol of my generation’s childhood nostalgy in France.
You now have the answer of Choux n CO. My favorite dessert and all the other nouns of a childish grammar rule!
