I really wanted to go back and see how Chewy Junior is doing now after its soft opening when we first sample their cream puffs and pizza last year. It’s a good thing that despite the gloomy weather, we can still have our cream puff fix because Quick Delivery delivers Chewy Junior!
About the Delivery
We placed our order online a few days before the date when we actually wanted it delivered. So this is an advance order. We set the delivery time to 5:30PM but the order arrived even earlier, 5:00PM. I guess getting your food earlier is always better than later. ^_^ We received everything we ordered, we just had to change one of the flavors 1 day before the delivery because it wasn’t available.
What We Ordered
We ordered almost every flavor except for Strawberry Cream Cheese because it wasn’t available. The best way to go is to get the boxes so you can save around P100 if you were getting purely Deluxe flavors in a box of 12, or save P43 in a box of 6! If you really want to include some Premium flavors in the box, you just have to add P10 per piece premium flavored cream puff. We ordered 1 box of 12, 1 box of 6, and 1 box of Deluxe Mini Puffs.
1 BOX of 12 (all Deluxe flavors) / P460.95
I have to say, opening the box of Chewy Junior was like opening a box of toy. As soon as we opened it, we were so intrigued by the swirls, colors, and sprinkles. We tried guessing which one was which in terms of flavor and it was fun! We ordered 2 of each of the following flavor in the Deluxe choices:
- Almond Sweetheart
- Chocolate Almond Crunch
- Blueberry Cream Cheese
- Cheese Lover
- Chewy Original
- Cookies N’ Cream
The crowd favorites were the 2 flavors with Almond shavings, and the other 2 with cheese. ^_^ Chewy Junior really lived up to its name. The dough was really chewy (good for some, and not for others – it depends on your chewing power, I guess). I love that they were generous with their filling in all the flavors.
1 BOX of 6 (all Premium flavors) / P303.45
The flavors we chose were:
- Dulce de Leche Ensaymada
- Java Chip Cookie
- Premium Triple Chocolate
What we liked in this set were the Dulce de Leche Ensaymada and Java Chip Cookie. One thing I really like about cream puffs is that they aren’t too sweet, but then Mario, the one with the very sweet tooth, thinks that the Premium Triple Chocolate was the best for him and then of course the combination of saltiness and sweetness with the Dulce de Leche Ensaymaa was a hit. These were Premium flavors alright.
Deluxe Mini Puffs (8pcs) / P104
These are the smaller versions of the full-sized puffs. I prefer these bite-sized goodies over the full-sized puffs because I get to sample more flavors without really getting full. Just 1 or 1.5 of the big ones and I’m done. But these little babies, all 8 I can finish all on my own. But of course, smaller size, smaller flavor portions so you don’t get to really taste the flavor, you can just get a sneak peak of it. For snacks and if you’re buying for a group, I would recommend getting the mini puffs.
From the ordering online in advance, to the last bite was a treat! From the last time I ordered online, the website has improved in terms of simplicity and ease of use, speed, and ability to customize orders even in bundles like the boxes. I remember before that it would take time to add/remove certain items from the order.
As for Chewy Junior, being biased since I really love cream puffs from the start, I think their twist in flavors and the right amount of sweetness for the fillings and toppings are spot on. I don’t know if I’m in-love with how really chewy the dough is, but I guess it’s part of the fun. The big ones are tough to divide between 2 people without ruining the look. So for me, the small ones are the better option if you decide to bring home treats or take them to your friend’s house.
