On The Road Friday ~ Wisconsin State Fair ~ Original Cream Puffs

We are on the road today, to the Wisconsin State Fair.
We are actually right in line to buy the famous Wisconsin Cream Puff!

Look at all the Cream Puffs!

 It is fun to see how Team Cream Puff works. They do a great job keeping the line moving and making up the most wonderful dessert!

 Filling the insides up with cream! Yummy!

 Some fun facts about Wisconsin State Fair Cream Puffs

The iconic Original Cream Puff, sold at the Fair since 1924, is the most popular food item among Fairgoers – an average of 350,000 are consumed each year, and more than 400,000 were enjoyed in 2014! The delicious cream-filled pastries can be enjoyed individually or in three- or six-packs. The Wisconsin Bakers Association operates the Cream Puff Bakery in the Original Cream Puff Pavilion, two additional conveniently located vending locations in the Fair Park.

Can you believe it, 400,000 were enjoyed in 2014! I ate one! But could have eaten many more.

 Your cream puff is packed in this fun box.
Guess what?

Drive-Thru / Pick-Up

Want to order Cream Puffs for pick-up during the Fair? During the State Fair, August 6 – 16, stop by the Cream Puff drive-thru location, which is open each morning from 6 – 8 a.m. Cream Puff drive-thru orders must be placed 24 hours in advance by calling the Cream Puff hotline

Yes, Wisconsin knows how to do it! Pick up your Cream Puff at the Cream Puff drive-thru. All you have to do is call the Cream Puff hotline!

 You will have to wait until August of 2015! Go ahead and put it on your 2015 calendar to visit the Wisconsin State Fair. You just might see me in the Cream Puff line.

  7. I am so jealous!!! I have heard of these famed Wisconsin pastries, but have not yet had the pleasure of trying one. I hope with my husbands new job, his schedule will be easier to work around, and we can go to the fair next year. So happy for you to be one of the 400,000!

  8. Husband absolutely loves creampuffs! I think he would make a special trip to Wisconsin just to enjoy these and I honestly couldn't blame him! Looks like such a fun day :-)

  13. That cow is hilarious! We have the Mayfield Dairy here in Tennessee and occasionally they send the Mayfield cow out to events. They give out free ice cream. I think your cow is more fun-looking than ours, though!
