No matter if you're single, married or somewhere complicated in the middle, you've got a date with delicious pastry this Valentine's Day thanks to the Wisconsin State Fair and its final curbside cream puff event – complete with the return of the cocoa cream puffs as well as the introduction of another brand new flavor, strawberry.

The new pink puffs feature the classic light and fluffy pastry shell, this time packed with strawberry-flavored cream in the middle that's the perfect hue for the holiday and just as sweet too. (As far as Valentine's Day treats go, we haven't tried it yet, but we can already tell it beats those nasty chalk message hearts.)

The cream puff pop-up will take place Feb. 11-14, featuring three-packs of either the strawberry or chocolate options for $14 as well as six-packs for $25. However, if you order before Sunday, Feb. 7, you can get three-packs for only $12 and six-packs for $22. To place your order, head over to the Wisconsin State Fair's website.  

As for picking up your strawberry sweets and chocolate creations, vehicles should enter State Fair Park though Gate 5, found at 640 S. 84th Street. The curbside pick-up spot will be open Thursday, Feb. 11 through Saturday, Feb. 13 from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m., as well as on Sunday, Feb. 14 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Customers are asked to stay in their vehicles to ensure social distancing and keep any lines moving as smoothly as possible. 

“We are excited to be hosting one final specialty cream puff event prior to the 2021 Wisconsin State Fair,” said Kathleen O’Leary CEO, Wisconsin State Fair Park, in a release. "We look forward to bringing smiles to Fairgoer’s faces with not only one, but two specialty cream puff flavors. It is a sweet finale to these innovative drive-thru events."

You read that quote right: This is your final chance to snag a cream puff before the actual Fair returns in August, so don't break your stomach's heart this Valentine's Day and preorder now. And thank the heavens we never got a Malort puff

As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.

When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
