Wisconsin State Fair Cream Puffs

From the Wisconsin State Fair site.

89 Days to Go before It Opens, In Case You're Wondering.

They are referred to as Original Cream Puffs and have been sold since 1924 and IS the MOST popular food item.  (I don't even think kringles are sold at the fair.)

On average, 350,000 are sold each fair run.  In 2013, more than 387,000 were sold.

You can buy the delicious cream filled bits of heaven individually, in 3-packs or even 6-packs. Best description of an original Cream Puff: ""A mountain of sweet cream sandwiched between  scrumptious puff shells."

The Wisconsin Bakers Association operates the Cream Puff Bakery in the Original Cream Puff Pavilion which is the main site, but there are two other small sites around the grounds for convenience.  Also, there is a drive-thru at Gate 6.
