Custard* Collapse Disorder
I also don't think we have made it up to the 105 Dunkin Donuts outlets we were expecting. There seemed to be room to grow in that I once did calculate the bakeries per capita metric. That is no joke, or at least the data that I used to generate it is real. I am not sure updated data is out yet that would allow me to update that chart. I'll have to look into that.
I still remember when it was a Krispy Kreme that was supposedly going to open up alongside the Whole Foods in East Liberty. That is one of those only in Pittsburgh things that it even appears to make sense to somebody, but it really was talked about; didn't happen. So now what? Rumors that Tim Hortons might be moving into the Burgh, but I don't think they have a beachhead yet. Still, what is going to save the retail bakery industry?
Just one word. Are you listening?
(Update: Mike points out the correct spelling, 'cannoli' is the plural, though I may not be the only one getting it wrong... I still want to know, is it stadiums or stadia? and if you are perplexed by his title, here's a hint. I''d be curious who gets the origin of the title here?)
* and for those of you who read too many blogs, you know I mean only custard-flavored custard since we never allowed 'other' flavored custards.
