The April Fool's Joke That Became a Real Product: Ochazuke Cream Puffs
Choux Cream (Japanese cream puffs) are a popular cream-filled pastry. Ochazuke is a savory tea soup that is poured over rice and served hot. Now, what started as an April Fools joke is becoming a reality; chazuke choux cream will be offered for one day at Beard Papa's, a popular cream puff chain.
A one-of-a-kind cream puff
Chazuke is served at some restaurants, but instant chazuke is probably the most commonly eaten version of this dish. Packets of dried broth and toppings can simply be emptied over a bowl of rice, hot water is added, and the chazuke is ready to be eaten. Look for instant packets next time you're at the grocery store!
