A Cream Puff Fit for Chicago

1 Jun

These little pieces of heaven turned my day from Worst to First! I had never heard of these before – Beard Papa’s apparently started in Japan and they’re slowly finding their way to the US. Apparently, they’re mostly in CA, but their website says they’re scattered around other places as well. And here in Chicago. Cause how else would I be having one?

My co-worker went and got them as a treat for the office.  She got chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. I had the vanilla. It was huge! The ‘puff’ part was a light flaky crust that barely held the rich, custardy goodness inside. I could even see the little vanilla bean specs. It was, quite literally, a little piece of heaven in my slightly-trembly fingers.

Heavenly

The best cream puff (or anything like it)I’ve ever had. Seriously. They’re down in the loop at State and Washington. You have to try one. Or three. Seriously.
