Here’s my thing about Crumbs cupcakes: they’re misleading. They make the most beautifully decorated cupcakes, and some too with sweet surprise fillings — but they’re just not that great.
I’ve tried to like them, but they just taste like the ones at the groceries to me. I thought I’d give it another go and stopped by the bakery in midtown on Broadway between 52nd and 53rd. I picked up a chocolate-filled vanilla cupcake with vanilla frosting and crispy chocolate bits:
Looks amazing right?? See what I mean? It’s hard to resist, but just didn’t do it for me. I decided to order a chai latte to down it, since generally chai lattes are hard to mess up — at least I like to think so.
But I couldn’t even finish my cup — it was too sweet if there could be such a thing. I like sweet over bitter tea and coffee drinks, but even I could take so much of it.
Once again. A fail. I’m sorry Crumbs. I tried to love you.
