The average person (including ourselves) should not be able to resist two main things when it comes to food – snacks and sweets. So when we got the invite from Kenneth of Kee’s Creampuffs to sample a variety of creampuffs, there was not a chance that we would decline!
As one might have guessed already, the theme of this post will be creampuffs! Kee’s Creampuffs is located in Subang, with a nearby landmark being The Summit Subang USJ shopping mall. Look out for the yellow shop on Jalan USJ 9/5Q and then walk in to treat yourself to some puffs.
By way of background, creampuffs are light pastries in a ball shape and most commonly filled with whipped cream, pastry cream or ice cream. Kee’s Creampuffs was previously a fully home and online-based business, but they recently established their first outlet in Subang Jaya.
The outlet in Subang Jaya comes with limited seating for those who would prefer to enjoy their creampuffs slowly while sipping a cup of coffee or tea. Coffee was priced at RM5.50 per cup and the various types of teas were RM5 per cup.
Needless to say, the main attraction at Kee’s Creampuffs is definitely the creampuffs. Various types of fillings are available to choose from, including amongst others vanilla custard, chocolate, coffee, mocha, and strawberry. The creampuffs here are made using no preservatives whatsoever, so we knew that whatever we got must be fresh. Therefore, we were advised that the creampuffs should be chilled and consumed within 2 days of purchase.
To start off, we sampled one of each flavour from the display. What we immediately noticed as a whole was that the filling of each creampuff, regardless of flavour, was not too sweet. This was a good thing in our books as it was sweet enough to please the taste buds, but not too sweet that we’d get tired of it after a few bites. The cream filling was thick and wasn’t runny which complemented the denser texture of the puff itself.
The bestseller and also one of our favourites was the Classic Creampuff filled with vanilla custard cream. With a light, unimposing custard flavour, it was simply too hard to resist continuously stuffing more of these creampuffs into our mouths! We were eventually stopped by the lure of the other creampuffs which looked very appealing as well. The Mocha and Coffee flavours are both very enjoyable as well, with Mocha being the sweeter of the two.
Pictured above is the Cookies & Cream Creampuff. However, our number one favourite has to be the chocolate-topped classic creampuff which had all the goodness of the original creampuff, but with added hardened chocolate on top! Special mention also goes out to the Strawberry Creampuff and Blueberry Creampuff, both of which had a distinct berry flavour as they are made with fresh chunk of their respective berries mixed in the cream.
For such quality creampuffs, Kee’s Creampuffs has priced them very reasonably. The Classic Creampuff is priced at RM1.50 per piece when purchase less than 10 pieces and for purchases of more than 10 pieces, there is a 15% discount off the total price. The same concept applies for the rest of the flavours as well (categorised as ‘Premium Creampuffs’), but each individual creampuff will be priced at RM1.80 per piece instead. Pictured above is a box of 25, which was RM25 and RM35 for a box of purely Classic creampuffs and purely Premium creampuffs respectively. However, that’s not to stop anyone from mixing and matching the various flavours in one box. It’s definitely worth it to give them all a try!
For those who already know what you want, it’s possible to just pick up the phone and order your various creampuffs. They’ll be fresh and ready for you to walk in and collect on the desired date. Those throwing a party can consider ordering creampuffs in bulk as well. These finger snacks will definitely be a hit and we’ve been told that Kee’s Creampuffs can cater for parties, weddings or celebrations in general.
We would like to extend our thanks to Kenneth for inviting us to the outlet and for introducing us to the joy of tasting some excellent creampuffs. For more information on Kee’s Creampuffs and for further contact information, do visit their Facebook page.
