Choco almond milk pies by Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory now available

Japan-based pastry shop Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory (TMCF) has launched a new variant to their best-selling milk pies – choco almond milk pies, available starting Wednesday, October 14.

They're everything TMCF's milk pies are well-known for – being freshly-baked, buttery, flaky, and generously filled with smooth Hokkaido cream filling. This new kind, though, is almost like if a chocolate almond croissant and a cream puff had a baby.

TMCF's choco almond milk pies are palm-sized, featuring a crisp puff pastry topped with a dark chocolate ganache and crunchy almond bits, sprinkled with powdered sugar and dark cocoa powder on top.

Its richness is complemented by the consistent star of the show, which is the silky and milky Hokkaido cream, generously stuffed inside. With every flaky, chocolate-y bite, you also get a burst of light custard, making it a filling and balanced merienda treat with your cup of coffee.

You can get Tokyo Milk Cheese Factory's choco almond milk pies in boxes of 5 for P625. You can also buy it per piece at P135 each from October 14 to November 14.

They're available for delivery via their website or for take-out from their retail stores at Estancia, Podium, SM Megamall, Uptown Mall BGC, Glorietta 4, and Greenbelt 5. –
