State Fair Creme Puff cream is made in IL

Postby rabble » Sun Jun 02, 2013 3:43 pm

Well, this year it is. When Golden Guernsey went out of business they shopped around and the only one they could find who could supply 1,200 gallons of cream was Prairie Farms Dairy of Carlinville, Ill.

I haven't gone to the State Fair or had a creme puff for about fifteen years, but I am incensed.

So is it creme puff or cream puff? I've always had the impression that creme was a stand-in for something you couldn't legally represent as cream. (Crème [fr.] is another matter.)

I believe in real cream, or no cream at all.

Damn. I didn't realize how I was spelling it. I think that was New England conditioning. I still catch myself calling a milkshake a frappe.

Yep. I bet you call a drinking fountain a bubbler, too. How weird is that?

(Or pop, soda, and so on.)
