My research tells me that Donut Holes are a million dollar
industry in Canada. They cost 20 cents each even though
are only one/sixth of a real donut.
If someone were to make a muffin-holing device, the bite-
size morsels could be sold individually at 30% more
than an already
Of scooping holes into muffins will mean that a regular
muffin will change in shape possibly offending our core
customer base. In order to educate the benefits of this a
we will need a marketing campaign explaining the F.A.B's of
the new muffin shape it will cost no more than 25% of our

||Muffins are excellent toasted with butter.
||Some people like cupcakes better. I, for one, care less for them.
Some people... some people like cupcakes exclusively, while myself, I say, there is naught nor ought there be nothing so exalted on the face of Gods grey earth as that prince of foods, the muffin.
||Are you selling these to the Canucks? The theory
that they will pay an upcharge for any small round
food seems sound. I am concerned about doing
battle with the doughty donut hole on its own
home turf, though. It might be hard for some
muffin fenestrations to usurp this kingdom.
||But here is the idea. Canadians are known to love
cheese curds (also small round food), french fries
and gravy, in a large heap. Why not savory muffin
holes taking the place of fries here? Just as the
muffin drinks up butter, so it will drink deep of
the gravy. And the combination of balls of cheese
and balls of muffin will be like catnip for the
Canadian aesthetic sense.
||Mini-muffins, much like doughnut holes in that they are simply smaller portions of cooked batter, can be found in many coffee shops and fast food restaurants around Vancouver so I think I can rightfully suggest the idea is Baked.
||Be careful, [bungston]. Most Canadians don't care for poutine. That's just another myth, like saying we all live in igloos and commute to work at the fish cannery by dog team.
||Poutine was originally invented by the French, who decided it was utterly unpalatable so they pawned it off on their distant cousins in Quebec. The Quebecois quickly embraced poutine as a gift from the motherland and the rest, as they say, is history. Warped and cliché history, but history nonetheless.
||Now Canuck, I meant no offense to the good Canadians. Don't start poutine.
||I thought he was a man, [mitxela]... But he was a muffin.
||Muffins have holes. You just need to make the
dough form an open-celled sponge rather than a
close-celled, and verify that the muffin hole
encapsulates the void-space inside another muffin.
||Bungston! I miss your ideas! Please post more.
||As to this idea, it's been proven that consumers. (Morons)
will pay more for less. "Muffin holes! All the flavor for 1/2
the calories". It'll sell.
