Inspiration can come from anywhere, even a Seinfeld episode!
McDonalds announced yesterday that they will be adding a new menu item to their breakfast selection: Muffin Toppers. They will be baked fresh daily in flavours like blueberry, double chocolate, and lemon poppyseed. You might be thinking…hey, I feel like I’ve seen this done before. And you have, in an episode of Seinfeld. Julia Louis Dreyfus’ character Elaine Benes loves the top part of the muffin, so she decides to open a shop called Top of the Muffin to You! Unfortunately, she runs out of places to dispose of the “stumps.”
According to a spokesperson, the toppers are just part of a larger roll out on other breakfast items including coffee cakes, cookies, and apple pies.
Still, no word on what they are going to do with the stumps.
