Yelp Review: Bearclaw
A new writing prompt emerged from the amazing people at Death to the Stock Photo asking us to review something from the last 24 hours.
I love pastries. And bread. And most carbs.
So when it's probably the last time (ish) for me to purchase anything in the School of Public Health cafe, you can bet I'm going to buy a pastry. Ordinarily I am a croissant girl, but they were out. Usually, this would be a star off -- BUT the saving grace was an almond covered bearclaw sitting in the front of the cabinet. It called to me saying, "You love almonds. And glaze. And carbs. And you got paid today."
It knows me so well already.
I got my pastry to go, taking it to class with me. As I watched Killing Us Softly, a great short documentary about the objectification of women's bodies in the media (Tough Guise is the guy version), I slowly took bites of my amazing bearclaw.
I'm not that person who says chocolate cake is too rich--I'm the girl who will finish whatever you don't (if you're the first kind, no problem, let's be friends because I would love to eat your leftovers). BUT WOAH. This Bearclaw was rich. It had glaze on top and a creamy almond filling, a soft buttery croissant crust; it had no flaws. I took the whole documentary to eat it and was completely satisfied to the last bite. A decadent afternoon delight that perfectly ended my semester (notwithstanding the fact that I still had two days of classes left, this made me forget it all).
As a bonus, it gave me a great amount of energy to enter my presentation an hour later. Sugar highs for the win! Would I eat one every day? Absolutely not, then it wouldn't be nearly as special. I'll see you again soon Almond Bearclaw. It's not you, it's me (and by me I mean my wallet).
Overall? 5 stars.
