muffin tops.

there's a coffee chain out here called dutch brothers that sells "muffin tops." it's exactly what it sounds like - an oversized "top" part of a muffin with no bottom.

it's a nifty sort of idea, and i'm not sure why because i don't know what makes the top part more appealing the bottom part even though I've certainly gone through a share of muffins in which i only ate the top part and discarded the bottom. Is it because it's less messy/crumbly? less effort because you don't have to open the little paper muffin holding thingy? the texture of the top being more well baked than the bottom half?

whatever the reason, it's pretty much a winner in my book.

there was apparently an entire episode of seinfeld about selling muffintops...

They are the tastiest bit - I'd actually bet because the tops sometimes get a bit o' butter or whatall to brown the crown... or because (as you saiid) they have the full on bakey crust...

Yup. Elane couldn't figure out how to get rid of the muffin bottoms. She even tried to give them away to the homeless and they got offended "Oh we're not good enough for the tops?"

The top seems more fluffy and moist than the bottom. Very common for me to eat the top half and discard the rest >_>

Texture. And they usually have delicious stuff sprinkled on top.

The bottom part is usually the most boring. It's just bread. No special stuffs.
