Has anyone tried it? I work and live right by two of them? I was wondering how it is? Have you tried the green tea lattes?

  1. I haven't tried the drinks. But I have tried the pasty. They are quite good. The pastry has a good crunch on the outside and soft on the inside. I had only the regular cream (I think they have other flavors). I guess the trick is that they fill them to order so they don't get soggy. One thing -- they do not keep well (definitely never refrigerate or they get totally soggy). So eat right away! :)

    1. re: LNG212

      I agree with LNG, eat them fresh in the store - the warm, crispy outside and cool, creamy inside is fantastic!

    2. I've only eaten the creampuffs, and are they delicious! I think the vanilla and chocolate are best, but whod'a thunk the Japanese would be so into creampuffs? Live and learn.

      1. They are addictive. I like the original filling (vanilla) but the strawberry ones (when they have them) are delectable!

        1. I agree with the others the cream puffs are quite good but need to be eaten soon after purchase. Although I have not tried the green tea lattes, I can attest that the white hot chocolate is great.

          1. yeah these are crazy. I was apprehensive because of the chain/franchise model, but they are huge, deliciously smooth and creamy filling, and I found they last for at least a few hours (I've had them at a few differemt potlucks before) and never the worse for wear.
