The State Fair is Releasing A New Strawberry Cream Puff

The brand new puff celebrates Valentine’s Day.

The Wisconsin State Fair is continuing their pandemic puff experimentation next month with a brand new, Valentine’s-inspired Strawberry cream puff.

The new flavor will be available for curbside pickup from Thursday, Feb. 11 through Sunday, Feb. 14 at State Fair Park through Gate 5. They’ll be sold in 3-packs and 6-packs, and if you pre-order before Feb. 7, you get a discount. 

And if you’re thinking, “Man, I hate strawberries. This stinks,” I have some goods news for you. They’re also going to be selling cocoa cream puffs, which made a first-time appearance last year.

If you also hate cocoa, I’m sorry my friend, but they’re not selling originals. 

Sadly, this is the final curbside cream puff event. The series of new flavors and drive-thru puffs has come to an end. Hopefully, we’ll be able to safely enjoy in-person puffs come August.

But for now, here are the hours when you can pick up these two flavors:

Thursday, Feb. 11-Saturday, Feb. 13: 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Sunday, Feb. 14: 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
