Tipiak tastes success at The Caterer Product Excellence Awards 2017

We were thrilled when our exquisitely French Pop Eclairs were selected as joint winner of the dessert category at the prestigious Caterer Product Excellence Awards 2017, held on 5 December at The In & Out Naval and Military Club in London.

The judges said: “The French Pop Eclairs from Tipiak are fun and have real visual appeal.  They come in a variety of flavours including crème brûlée, chocolate-orange, lemon and fruity raspberry-blackcurrant, all of which are delicate and complement each other.  With their twist on classic pâttiserie, these éclairs would be a perfect talking point for any party.”

A modern twist on the choux classic, our Pop Eclairs are the perfect pâtisserie solution for the busy chef and foodservice operator.  Simply thaw and serve to provide a gorgeous afternoon tea indulgence, a sweet treat after dinner, or a mouth-watering addition to morning coffee.

Hand-created in France, by skilled pâttisiers, the Pop Eclairs come in the perfect mini-size (average 15g each) that’s ideal for today’s latest trend for miniaturisation.
