The other day, I ate and compared the "Fish Burger" that was released at Lawson and FamilyMart at the same time, but here is the comparison. Lawson's "melon bread-like cream puff" (150 yen including tax) and FamilyMart's "cream puff-like bread (custard & whipped cream)" (120 yen)! Both will be released on November 17th.

Two similar and non-similar pastries released on the same day for some reason

In both cases, "cream puff" is the keyword, so it's a little complicated, but Lawson is cream puff and FamilyMart is bread. (Melon) Bread-like cream puff and bread like cream puff. Two similar and dissimilar pastries.

… It's confusing even if you look at it in writing, so let's eat and compare.

● Lawson "cream puff like melon bread"

A visual similar to "I 've burned the skin of melon bread ", which was released a while ago. The cookie dough, which looks like the skin of melon bread, is covered with cream puff dough and baked. The custard whipped cream is inside.

When I try to eat--

The crack looks like a cookie and looks delicious

Ahhhh, this is Umma ...! Even though cream puffs are delicious, you can enjoy double texture and double fragrance because the moist choux pastry is covered with crispy cookies. This is Ummer !!

This is a foul

This is exactly "something nice with cream in a melon bread". It has both melon bread and cream puff elements. By the way, the displayed calorie of one meal is 281 kcal. Those with high calories are delicious. I knew it.

● FamilyMart "Bread like cream puff (custard & whipped cream)"

A sweet bread made by wrapping custard cream in a moist dough, squeezing the choux pastry and baking it. In addition, whipped cream is also included. By the way, this is bread, not namagashi, so it is placed on the bakery shelf (normal temperature).

The fabric is surprisingly fluffy when you bite it! The surface is moist and smooth like baby's skin, and melts quickly when chewed. The sweetness is also gentle ...! Imagine a dry cream puff skin and eat it, and be careful (in a good way) as it will be a shocking betrayal that will suddenly be eaten by a person approaching you while smiling!

The fluffy dough is filled with cream without any gaps.

And the custard and whipped cream were tightly packed inside. Two creams that overflow with every bite. The cream puff element was in the cream inside rather than the dough. The displayed calories per meal is 299 kcal.

● Conclusion: The two are completely different

This time, the things were different (raw pastry and sweet bread), so I settled on the conclusion that both were insanely delicious rather than either. It was just as delicious, but the sweet cream puff was good for desserts and snacks after meals, and bread was good for breakfast and midnight snacks. If you like bread and cream puffs, please try the sweets that you can enjoy both at once!

I like round and sweet things!
