Crumbs did a major bad in my world, they opened a store in the vicinity of my work, and didn't hand out free cupcakes. Well, they handed out mini regulars, but those appeared to run out with no replenishment. Bad, bad, bad. Then Moniker told me to hit up Crumbs anyway.
She knew that they had begun their Halloween designed cupcakes, having had a black and orange cupcake from there. Fortunately (or unfortunately for my hips which are screaming mercy), I needed to meet Bez around Bryant Park the other evening. Do you really think I would pass up the chance to stop by and see what was being offered? I think not. The top shelf had regular vanilla and chocolates with frosting designs, cobwebs, spiders, etc., but they also had a few of their Hostess decked out as well. Excited, I picked one up for some waiting-time eating. I have to say I liked the purple filling, it reminded me of spider guts and put me in the Halloween mood. The one I got must have been sitting around for a while since it was a bit dry, not the best I've had from there. I hope that the recent expansion does not equal a quality downgrade.
