i found my thrill on blueberry ...

Available at all 3 Dufflet cafes only until the end of August, fresh Blueberry mini tarts.

Imagine a sweet and buttery 1.5" tart shell painted with chocolate on the inside, then filled with scrumptious pastry cream and crowned with a mound of plump, fresh blueberries.
