Sink your teeth into your first Chewy Junior and you'll know it's not any ordinary cream puff. It's crispy on the outside, yet soft and chewy on the inside, making it perfect to munch on! The puffs were an accidental creation by founder Kevin Ong, who had experimented with a blend of recipes from two different countries. Thereafter, it took him two years to adjust the processes and bring the puffs to perfection. The result is a healthier version as the puffs are baked and not fried, and use only the finest ingredients and pure dairy products from mother’s nature! Today, Chewy Junior sells thousands of puffs daily in every outlet! The craze has also been featured on the Sunday Times and Youth.SG. With so many delicious flavours to choose from, you'll absolutely be spoilt for choice @ Chewy Junior!'
I dont have a sweet tooth so Chewy Juniors isn’t exactly my idea of an ideal dessert. However, I’ve bought it a couple of times as an afternoon snack and understand why it’s worth all the hype. Their cream filling is very light and fresh - it doesn’t have the thick consistency like whipped cream. As i ordered the Oreo cookie flavour, (which is one of their most popular flavours) I was able to enjoy many different sensations - crispy oreo cookies, soft butter crust as well as the cold fluffy cream. Overall, i would recommend Chewy Juniors for people with a sweet tooth and for a snack at birthday parties for kids!
But I did. It was one of those "I don't believe it was that bad" moments and I bought the Oreo one and this time I actually liked it. The cream was sweet, the Oreo crumbs complemented it, and it wasn't overly chewy like the first time. I was very pleasantly surprised.
Since then, I've been back to Chewy Jr a few times and have revoked my declaration of war against Chewy Jr. However, I have tried the end-of-day sales again and those are still terrible. Their cream puffs are inedible at $1.
With more than 20 flavours, I dont think I will stop going to chewy junior till im toothless! Every two weeks, I will buy a box for my family but honestly, I have the habit of eating half of it! That is simply how good it is! This chewy goodness should not be left out.
The taste was sweet and filled with chocolate. The cream ooze out of the puff and it was messy. You can never have clean hands, or face, while eating it, but it is worth the mess. The creamy goodness was so delightful. It was like heaven in a puff.
They began to have more flavours after some time, making your Chewy Junior experience a best one all the time. Those little puffs are hard to resist.
The first bite I took and I knew it was a mistake. It was horrible. I'm cringing now just thinking about it. You know when you eat something really bad and you feel like throwing up? That's how I felt. The chewiness of the puffs makes it all the more worse.
I do feel a bit tempted every time I pass by their outlets because they look so good but then I'd remind myself that looks are deceitful. So no, just no.
My father does not like the strawberry topped puff though. I personally love the Hazelnut caramel and the almonds sliced cream puffs. Today, I bought home a new flavor: caramel butter. Bought it from Serangoon Nex Mall. The outlet at Nex has more varieties than that in Bugis. They had samples for the Caramel Butter cream puff and i fell in love after trying!
And no, the flavours don't help. The chocolate spreads and cream cheese toppings are not bad, but the texture of the 'bun' gets to me all the time. What is this I'm eating? A bread? A puff pastry? Both? Neither? If I want cream puffs, I'll go for Beard Papa. If I want bread, anywhere else. I definitely will not crave for something in between (or whatever chewy junior is selling). It's just... plain weird. It's not something that'll make me go 'oh let's come back again' or 'hmmm I'm craving this'. The total opposite actually, it's a confusing piece of food.
Am I the only one who feels like that? Because this will be the first and only and last time I patronise this place.
The concept of chewy cream puffs is by itself innovative. I like the original best, but the peanut butter ones are not bad either. I'm not keen on the ones with icing or sauces because these taste rather artificial, not something that the store has prepared from scratch.
I do wonder how good the savoury ones are. Having eaten only sweet puffs my whole life, the idea of putting mushrooms and curry in a puff puts me off.
I am always spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing which flavors I want. So many how to choose?!?!? Since I don’t really like it when it gets too sweet, I always go for lighter flavors like mango cheese. It has a fruity taste that makes the puff seem even more delicious. I would advise against going for double chocolate if you not going to have it on the spot because it can create quite a mess when carried in a box.
I'm not sure what about Chewy Junior that I like in particular, probably just the taste of the puff-like, donut-like, flour-substance of it, and at decent prices. They have discounted rates too, at late hours! And perhaps my parents would find Chewy Junior too sweet, but then again, this is probably also their opinion for most snacks at such food kiosks.
And I think Chewy Junior especially stand out because I would say that their closest competitors are donuts. Yet, you have several donut shops that have successfully made a name for themselves, such as Dunkin', Donut Factory, J.CO, and no offence to donut lovers, but I fail to find the difference among the donuts sold at these shops.
So yeah, all the way, Chewy Junior!
