supersized cupcakes

Were a dumb idea to start with.

The cronut came along after the chain had expanded too quickly and BOOM it went tits up.

Don't imagine he'll make a go of it without a major revamp and review.

Unless you consider mildly-sugared cardboard 'addicting', they aren't. Crumbs cupcakes were the worst.

Bizarre. The cachet of a big investor is meant to be enough to revitalize a bankrupt business based on a fad? Really?

Will they rename the business from "Crumbs" to "Pump N' Dump"?

Not at all related to TFA, but if the 'baccy companies want to ensure their profitability, they need to go big-time behind legalizing weed. They already have massive plant processing and distribution networks in place.
