I haven’t had a Beard Papa cream puff in a while, but I think they changed the recipe or something. The vanilla cream filling had a different texture than what I came to expect, and frankly, I didn’t like it as much.

Mmm, how I love Beard Papa’s cream puffs! I hadn’t seen this variety before so I decided to try it. The cookie crumble on top was actually really good, but these puffs are plenty good without them too.

Mmm, how I love Beard Papa’s cream puffs.  And vanilla is my favorite!  The chocolate custard has a weird grainy texture that I’m less partial to.  The choux pastry is SO frickin’ light and fluffy and the vanilla custard is yummy!  The dusting of powdered sugar adds a little more sweetness.  I can only purchase one at a time otherwise I tend to eat them all, hehe!
