WI_State_FairThe Wisconsin State Fair opens this Thursday, August 6th and runs through Sunday, August 16th.   Which means there is less than 48 hours left until Cream Puff sales commence!  With their moist interiors, crisp outer shells and golden brown tops these delicious (& VERY LARGE) puffs are generously filled with real whipped cream goodness.

Cream Puff Craze:

Wisconsinites love their State Fair Cream Puffs and 2008 was a record-breaking year with more than 381,000 cream puffs leaving the Dairy Bakery.  Considering attendance at the Fair last year was just over 872,000, that’s roughly 1 cream puff for every 2.3 people at the Fair…  Of course you needn’t actually be at the Fair to enjoy a cream puff.  For those of us who must work to support our cravings, there is drive through pick-up available each morning from 6-8 am and if your group orders 10 dozen or more, Bell Ambulance delivers.  Yippee!

What’s it all about?
Brief history lesson:  The Wisconsin State Fair began way back in 1851 with the cream puff making it’s first appearance in 1924.
Yep, 85 years of cream puff goodness & it’s popularity just keeps growing! The State Fair Cream Puff now has the building named after it: Original Cream Puff Pavilion, it’s own web site: OriginalCreamPuffs.com and it’s own hotline number: (414)266-7111.

Of course, there are plenty of other foods (chocolate-covered bacon anyone?) to try at the Fair and I highly recommend heading over to the Wisconsin Products Pavilion for the grilled cheese sandwiches, buffalo burritos and fabulous baked potatoes.  Be sure to also stop by the Department of Tourism booth inside the Pavilion to sign up for the WisconsINN Getaways e-newsletter and pick up your 2009 Wisconsin Lodging Directory filled with nearly 1,000 great Places to Stay In Wisconsin!
