The Plaza at Preston Center Adds New Tenants

    You missed a story in the WSJ today about the declining cupcake fad. Good thing Sprinkles is branching out into ice cream, although judging by the inexplicable line out the door for cupcakes every afternoon they don’t seem to have much to worry about.

    Just like frozen yogurt (round 1) and bagels, cupcakes too are bound to pass. Coffee seems to have staying power.

    Did Bagels “pass”?

    You three bring up an interesting story idea about food fads. Personally, I am still on the frozen yogurt, bagel, AND cupcake train. Not sure what that says about me!

    Frozen Yogurt had a great run during the late ’80s early ’90s (anyone remember Penguins?). Don’t understand the cupcake thing, but good for them. If only we could get a place that serves all the fads; Bank-Taco-Sprinkles-Chain-‘Bucks.

    You can still find bagels everywhere, but there seem to be few dedicated bagel shops (Einsteins) – during bagels’ heyday of the mid-90s, they were everywhere.
