In Which One Doesn’t Have to Decide Between Doughnuts and Cream Puffs…

Chewy Junior!

There are days when the only thing that can cheer you up is a fat Bavarian creme doughnut virtually bursting with cream filling – vanilla for the most, slightly lemon-scented if your local sinker joint likes to be a bit posh.  And there are days when you want a good, fat cream puff drizzled enticingly with swirls of amber-tinged caramel.

And then, you have days like this when you have no idea what you want and you don’t feel like tossing a coin to make a choice.  On days like this, run like heck for the nearest Chewy Junior branch.

What you get are large, cream- / custard-filled sinkers with equally tempting toppings.  Like cream-puffs, they’re filled till almost bursting with billowy swirls of flavored custard.  However, the outside is as chewy as a yeast-raised doughnut and is just as moreish.

Personal picks – recommendations just in case you find yourself shocked into indecisiveness by the assorted flavors on display – are the white-choc-topped and cream-cheese-stuffed strawberry shortcake, the chocolate almond crunch, and the marshmallowy kiddie rocky road.  Whichever you choose, your cravings will certainly be satisfied.  😉
