If you don’t already know about Mr. Puffs – it’s time to try them!
Mr. Puffs donut holes could best be described as a delectable, mouthwatering experience. Their Puffs are based on traditional Greek donut holes, known as Loukoumades – which date back 2800 years, to ancient Greece. These are not like your regular Munchkins or Timbits! You might have already had the opportunity to indulge your taste buds with a Puff or two (or more) from a Puff food trailer at some of the many festivals around the city including: Just For Laughs, Grand Prix, Osheaga and many other ethnic festivals.
At any of their present 11 locations in Quebec (with 7 more opening by the end of 2019), you won’t find any Puffs ‘ready to go’ and displayed behind a glass counter as they are made fresh on site, served hot – and glazed on order from a choice of all natural toppings such as: pure honey or maple syrup, honey walnut, chocolate hazelnut, hazelnut biscotti, creamy caramel, strawberry cinnamon and strawberry sugar. You might even want to try their Mount Olympus – a bed of Puffs with soft serve ice cream.
Can you say ‘yummy’? Vegan yummy too. Their all natural Puffs are egg free, dairy free, peanut free, have no preservatives or additives and cooked in high quality 100% Canola oil – with half the calories and fat of a regular donut. Instead of flowers to win someone’s heart over, a ‘Bouquet of Puffs’ cone might be just the thing.
Puffs can be purchased by half a dozen, a dozen, thirty or fifty variety boxes. Puff platters and other menu items such as specialty coffees, milkshakes, ice cream and traditional Greek pastries are also available. Additionally, they have specialty cold and hot drinks. Their ‘Café Frappe’, a frothed Greek iced coffee drink, made from instant coffee is very popular, especially in the summer. It is called Frappé, because it is beaten and shaken to create its unique froth. You might want to try a Mr. Puffs Mocha coffee to warm you up.
Mr. Puffs also offers catering on site. For corporate & sports events or an office party, you can rent one of their street trucks and ride a Puffsmobile. They can also set up a Station or bring in a Food Truck to your wedding, engagement or baptism celebration and even to a fundraiser.
Founded in 2004 by Billy Siounis, Mr. Puffs is a Laval, Quebec based company and the first of its kind in North America. In the spring, they are preparing to open locations in LaSalle, Saint-Eustache and Vaudreuil, followed by Saint-Jérôme, Pointe-aux -Trembles, Gatineau and Quebec City by the end of 2019. They are equally thrilled to announce that Mr. Puffs will be expanding into the U.S. – with the first of 20 Florida locations set to open this summer in Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
Words might not be enough to describe these scrumptious desserts, so you will have to taste a Puff for yourself. Concerned about extra calories? As Billy Siounis said, “If you are going to cheat… cheat Greek!”
