A chocolate strawberry something or other..

Cream pies are always a good thing. We were please to see one turn up today as we hadn't had one in quite a while.  This one looked like a classic chocolate cream pie albeit a commercial one.  Typical whipped cream like topping - it wasn't the real thing  - with some shaved chocolate and a strawberry garnish. When we cut into it imaging our surprise to see the filling was actually a strawberry flavored mousse. After the initial surprise, though, we just dug right in.  As with most cream pies this was very light and the chocolate and strawberry went well together. The filling was not as heavy as custard based cream pies which was a plus but in truth we like them all.
