First bite: Cheese Puff and Kouign Amann

They're the latest treats from Krispy Kreme.



Both are made of puff pastry, slathered with Belgian Butter, and sprinkled with sugar. The Cheese Puff [allegedly] has a custard cream cheese filling. The Kouign Amann has no filling, but Krispy Kreme claims that the treat is "baked under caramelized sugar."



Were they good? Well, the puff pastry was fresh and of good quality. The Cheese Puff barely had filling, and based on the small amount we tasted, this filling was a tad too sweet. There was more custard than salty cheese. We also wished that the Cheese Puff wasn't topped with sugar.



The Kouign Amann tasted like good croissant. We sensed no caramelized sugar though.

Each treat costs Php 50 per piece.



Try them and judge for yourself.
