Vanilla Flavored Beard Papa's Cream Puff.

A look inside the Cream Puff.

So this is what everyone has been talking and raving about. Tried it a while ago and decided to provide my own review on it.

For starts, I can appreciate the effort put into this treat. Walking into their store (on Denman), I couldn't help but realize that I was visiting a very unique store. The service provided was great. From what I recall, you can choose from two main flavors: vanilla or green tea. There might also be other flavors now.

Went with the classic/original flavor vanilla. From what I recall, these aren't cheap....nor were they ridiculously overpriced. After trying one piece, I thought it was okay...I mean I wasn't totally blown away. Was it worth trying? Yeah, I'd say so...would I go back and buy half a dozen occasionally? Probably not.

If you're a big fan of cream puffs, I recommend trying this out. If you're not the biggest fan, I wouldn't say you're missing out on too much by passing on these.

As far as I can remember, the vanilla is standard; green tea rotates on a daily basis, along with strawberry and, if I recall correctly, chocolate.

I am not sure if you noticed but they have a somewhat hilarious note: it is *only* 200 (or so) calories!

Finally, you missed the Crystal Mall location. ^_^

Thanks KimHo. I have edited the post to include the Crystal Mall location.

What is your favorite flavor KimHo?

Actually, I am not that fond of sweets. Once in a while, sure but... As for Beard Papa's. I blogged it here:

I just blogged about these too. I feel the same way as you about the regular ones, but trust me, try the green tea ones if you stop in when they're available. They're amazing.

Hi Lydia,

I'm not the biggest fan of Green Tea, but I will keep that in mind in the future if I ever visit Beard Papa's again.

Thanks for letting me know.
