food: muffin tops

March 15, 2017

For those Seinfeld sitcom fans, “The Muffin Tops” was one of the more memorable episodes. It asked the questions on all of our minds, whenever we had muffins. “Can I have just the top?” “Why do they have to make the bottom also?” Muffin top is the crunchy, flavorful, essence of a muffin. The bottom stump is that dry…. Does anyone even remember what the bottom tastes like? Is the stump really necessary?

McDonald’s apparently did not think so. It came out with the Muffin Toppers. Has McDonald’s hit another jackpot, like the all-day breakfast?

I haven’t seen the muffin toppers in our local stores. There are reviews online. Apparently, it’s not really a muffin top “popped” from a whole muffin. They are really muffins with a very shallow stump. It’s more like a miniature muffin.

You don’t really get that crunchy top, baked to perfection. Worse, you just get a miniature muffin that tastes like it’s all stump.

 

 

McDonald’s apparently did not follow Seinfeld’s (Elaine’s) advice. You need to bake the whole muffin, then “pop” the top, chuck the stump away.
