Cupcake product extensions gone awry

A lot of chains that shouldn’t be getting into the cupcake act are “diversifying.” I really don’t get why Cinnabon is doing cupcakes. These don’t even look the least bit appealing when I’m walking by the store in National Airport.

And the tagline should be outlawed: Cinnabon cupcakes – Anything else is just a CupFake.

Haagen Dazs and Cold Stone Creamery (below), that makes more sense since everyone loves an ice cream cake. Yet I never see anyone ordering them in the store. Is that because everyone knows that Baskin Robbins makes the best ice cream cakes?


My anaconda don’t want none unless you got Potenza’s buns, hon

Ah, Potenza bakery. Reasonably priced goodies and sandwiches that are way better than any chain. They bake these buns fresh a bunch of times every day. I’m not the type that gets tempted by the smell of Cinnabon wafting through the airport, or by cinnamon buns in general. (They’re usually too rich.) These cherry sticky buns are awesome, though, which is why they made our Best of DC list ($2 each).

The first time I tried these, I shared one with a friend. Now I know better. BTW their sandwiches are awesome, too.

Potenza bakery, corner of 15th and H Street right near McPherson Metro.
