Thought Shake Shack Was Bad? Try Waiting 40 Minutes for Cream Cakes
The machine’s operators, for all of their efforts with scrapers, tongs, and even a paintbrush, were having trouble extracting the cream puffs from their high-tech pods without tearing them open, recalling the conveyor-belt scene from I Love Lucy. Actually, over the course of 40 minutes, a lot of things came to mind — and we’d be lying if we said the cream cakes (which taste faintly of cornmeal and don’t deliver nearly as much of a custard hit as a Beard Papa puff) were worth the wait. If you want to see the machine in action without blowing an hour, check out this video from the now-shuttered Deli Manjoo.
