I finally broke down and just tried one of these today. I've known about them for a while but I don't tend to eat sweets in general but, for some reason while walking by the one store that sells them, I decided to give it a try.
I'm seriously impressed with these creme puffs. First of all, it wasn't what I expected. I assumed it would be a soft puff, similar to the ones most of us grew up with (that I dislike). Instead, it was kind of crispy on the outside, and very light and fluffy inside. This turns out to be the perfect compliment to the not too sweet creme, much more to my liking. The only negative thing was that it fell apart in the bag because of the puff being so crunchy. Of course, I can only blame myself for this - since I stuffed it into my pocketbook assuming, again, that it would maybe just get a bit squished, but not broken. No matter, as my mom used to say it tastes the same no matter what it looks like.
I only wish I'd stayed away because now that I realized how great they are, I'm afraid I may not be able to stay away from them - and they just can't be "good" for you (other than making you smile).
