What is a Choux Cring? It’s a choux cream pastry in the shape of a donut ring, filled with pastry cream and topped with glaze like a donut. Choux cream + ring shape = Choux Cring!

At 180 to 240 yen a pop, choux crings make a delicious snack while in transit in Omotesando (there’s a Choux Cring store inside the Marche de Metro on the B1 level in Omotesando station) or a great gift for friends or co-workers. Flavors range from vanilla and chocolate to matcha milk, cappuccino, and seasonal flavors, such as sakura cheese which was available during sakura season. My personal favorite is the almond caramel choux cring – a perfect puff pastry ring filled with fluffy pastry cream, topped with a delicious caramel glaze and slivered almonds.
