Muffin Top.

I think I'm going to invent the "Next Big Thing."

The All-Top Muffin.

The best part of the muffin is the top. The slightly crunchy, yet moist and chewy goodness that's easy to eat and tastes great. Really, after eating the top off the muffin, it's pretty much all downhill.

Sure the bottom is alright, but you have to peel the paper off, and it usually crumbles apart, forcing you to brush yourself off before you can go anywhere. The bottom part of the muffin is lost time, and in this go-go world of ours, lost time means...well it means something, but I'm not sure what.

What would the All-Top Muffin look like? Well because it's all top, the crust could be formed in to any shape you wish! Imagine a muffin that fits right into your cup-holder in your car. Better yet, imagine a muffin that is the cup-holder in your car! Breakfast on the go, eh?

The secret to the All-Top Muffin would be no pans. No baking pans means no paper cups, and no paper cups means no soggy, useless bottom on the Muffin. I think the best way to accomplish this would be zero-g ovens. Which means the Muffins have to be made in space. I figure retro fitting a shuttle with some ovens and a couple of tons of batter would be a no brainer. It's not like NASA is doing anything important right now anyways.

What would it sell for?

Well, the initial production run would be slightly more expensive to produce,(what with the cost of rocket fuel) but once the bugs are ironed out I figure they should retail for about $1500.00 each.

Should fit nicely into Starbucks pricing scheme. ( I think it'll be one of the cheaper items on the menu.)

So, anyone want to invest in a guy with a dream?

  1. Didn't Seinfeld cover this one? I seem to remember Kramer running down an alley, trying to feed the muffin bottoms to the homeless.

    I like your Rocketship Spin on it, but I think that your pricing is still not high enough to cover the costs. NASA's all 'lower bidder', these days, and the successful launch percentage just isn't high enough.
