Japan's delectable cream puffs

First the good news about the little pastries made by Japanese cream puff chain Beard Papa's:

The dessert in question contains custard and whipped cream -- speckled with tiny pieces of vanilla bean -- inside an inner shell of choux pastry and an outer layer of pie crust.

Now the bad news: The little buggers pack a whopping 220 calories apiece!

More bad news: Beard Papa's currently has only 13 outlets in the U.S., and none of them take mail orders.

If anyone's tried one of these delicious-sounding treats, please report in!
