I took the GO Train yesterday, a rather uncommon occurrence. It was just before lunch and I was heading to a meeting in Brampton, where there’s unfortunately nowhere nearby to get anything to eat. My options were few, such as:
- The Second Cup
With only a few minutes to spare before my train left, with or without me, I decided to grab a Rice Krispy square at mmmuffins. I often get Rice Krispy squares from The Second Cup, but the kiosk unfortunately did not have any.
What I didn’t remember, is that mmmuffins’ Rice Krispy squares aren’t exactly similar to the ones that I’m used to. Second Cup’s are always soft, chewy and just sweet enough, even if a bit small. For about $2 at mmmuffins, I got a HUGE brick-sized square. That’s about all it had going for it. It was rubbery and not sweet enough. Ew. I didn’t think it was possible to screw up a Rice Krispy square.
One bite in, as I was chewing (and chewing…) the slightly sand-flavoured square I remembered something. Five years ago I had fallen for the same thing! An innocent Rice Krispy square purchase gone awry.
Lesson learned: don’t fall for the alure of that giant Rice Krispy square at mmmuffins. Get a brownie or something from Second Cup instead. Even one of McDonald’s “baked pies” would have been better.
