You may be right but even so, I'll still ride that bomb like Slim Pickens.

The two worst food trends of the last three years - cupcake bakeries and pulled pork sandwiches. Almost all of them do them badly.

Remember Muffin Break (I think thats what they were called.) The one at Fort and Foul Bay used to be lined out the door. For the first 2 years they were pulling over a Million per year and then by about year 3-4 it started getting boring and by year 5 was gone.

Same for the one on Shelbourne across from the Macdonalds they lasted a bit longer but eventually disappeared as well.

Actually, start working out now because Union Doughnuts is slated to open somewhere downtown this summer. Think Seattle's Top Pot, S.F.'s Voodoo and NYC's Dough doughnut shops as inspiration.
I can hardly freakin' wait!

Ya, that sure was odd how they died. I guess Tim Horton's keeps changing as needed, because they sure don't resemble what they were like 20 years ago.

I'm gonna open a chocolate bar store. No, not a chocolates store like Purdy's or Roger's, not a candy store like the English Sweet Shop. Nope, this thing is only gonna have chocolate bars, factory-wrapped. From all around the world, and beyond.
