Cupcake Vending Machines

Posted in category Boom-Bubble Phenomenon

Sprinkles, a chain that sells gourmet cupcakes for the perpetually adolescent crowd, is coming out with the 24-hour diabetes cupcake vending machine. I wonder if the company will soon be a sponsor of the ADA? The gentleman in the video below, a boom-bubble cupcake entrepreneur, calls the cupcake a vehicle for instant gratification. No kidding! Look at the interior of his store and tell me it doesn’t look like a daycare center.

    You know, I heard this mentioned on the Daily Wrap, and immediately wondered how long until you commented!

    Does anybody (beyond your readers, Karen!) actually LISTEN to the crap they are saying?  ”The best ingredients”…what does that mean?  Every since ingredient is terrible, how does “best” even get into the conversation?  And then the spokesman (the man whose body seems to demonstrate how much he samples his own product) saying that they were a success because they offered something unique that you couldn’t get from a franchise…but the piece ends with them crowing their success because now they are going “national” and offering franchise opportunities!  And finally, what they wanted was something that “brought instant gratification” and “made people happy”…sounds like drug addiction (and for sure it is, if people come in there four or fives a week like he claims).  Me, I don’t think I WANT “instant gratification” or something that will make me “happy” from being ingested; that’s just too much “Brave New World” soma.

    What I meant to write was “every SINGLE ingredient is terrible.”

    You people sound as stupid as the people in the government and the medical establishment and others who for decades have been critical of fat, sodium, sugar, red meat, milk, cholesterol, and anything else on their radar. You just focus your criticism on the sugar.

    Just like Michelle Obama and her war on salt, fat and sugar, you know what’s best for everyone. Any deviation from your alleged wisdom warrants criticizing (like calling people or their tastes juvenile)

    One would think the concept of people willing to buy a product and other people willing to sell it (you know the free market) would be good enough you. If you don’t like or want the product, and no one is forcing you to buy it, that should be good enough as well. But no.

    Everyone’s tastes are different so stop acting like you know what’s best for people. If everyone liked “broccoli with melted raw butter, grass-fed meats, calamari, squashed covered w/ canned marinara sauce, free-range 5-egg omelets” they would be eating the stuff and you’d see stores opening up to sell it.

    That Joe Queenan article was just plain stupid. It’s just a cupcake. Live and let live and grow the hell up.

    I’m not coming back to this site to read responses because there are more important things to worry about than cupcakes. (You know, the Fed, the wars, loss of freedom, the government controlling every aspect of our lives etc)

    Why do people like Tom just hate social criticism? Because they are also obsessed with cupcakes? If so, just ignore the people making fun of cupcakes….it’s easy.
