Love is in air, as the Wisconsin State Fair announced it's bringing back its strawberry and cocoa Valentine's Day cream puffs for the 2023 holiday weekend.

The two special edition desserts – featuring the classic puff pastry shell but filled with a fluffy mound of either strawberry or chocolate cream – first made their delicious tandem debut in 2021. Since then, the treats have become a bit of a tradition, bringing a little Valentine's Day flavor to the traditional fluff – and, most importantly, giving us an excuse to gorge on bonus cream puffs several months before the State Fair even starts. 

Three-packs and six-packs of either the strawberry or cocoa cream puffs – no mix-and-matching flavors, unfortunately – will be available through the Wisconsin State Fair Park drive-thru in West Allis from Saturday, Feb. 11 through Tuesday, Feb. 14, aka Valentine's Day. To make sure you're not left heartbroken, pre-orders are recommended at the Wisconsin State Fair's website – and as an added bonus, if you order by Feb. 5, you can save on your sweetheart-themed sweet treats, with three-packs costing only $14 and six-packs costing just $25.

To claim your cream puffs, the State Fair drive-thru will be open Saturday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m., Sunday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., Monday from 3-7 p.m. and Tuesday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.

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.
