After being enamored with their cream puffs, I eagerly returned to the Choux Factory to try their muffins one morning. Though the chocolate chip (which looks like a chocolate muffin decked with chocolate chips) was very alluring, I went the healthful route by selecting one with fruit - a banana muffin; I couldn't say no to it, especially as it looked at me through its adorable banana slice-eyes.
A banana muffin alien!
The verdict: the muffin top was disappointing ! It had the texture of cardboard, but probably tasted a tad better. I did enjoy the inside of the muffin better than the top, which is so contrary to my undying love for muffin tops (the food, not the fashion faux pas) - the crumb inside was soft and fine. Something was just off on the whole banana flavoring though. I would recommend sticking with the cream puffs here.
