The Mufgel Takes NYC By Storm

New York City is well known for having one of the best food scenes in the world. While the city is full of five-star restaurants owned by some of the best chefs in the world, it is sometimes the more casual snacks that get the most attention. New York is definitely used to the newest trends in snack foods, which have recently included the cronut and coffee in a cone. According to a recent news article (http://www.cntraveler.com/stories/2016-08-10/the-mufgel-is-the-latest-nyc-food-craze) the mufgel could be the most popular culinary craze of all.

The mufgel is a delicious morning snack that is a cross between a muffin and bagel, which has helped anyone decide on the perfect breakfast. The mufgel, which has started popping up in bakeries all over the city over the past few weeks, was first introduced to the city in early July.

While it has rapidly increased in popularity, the snack has some interesting roots behind it. The snack was initially discussed as a joke on a popular New York City morning news program. Initially, it was considered a joke to poke fun at the recent craze of snack foods in the city. However, one bakery in Brooklyn decided that they wanted to take the idea to the next level. The popular Bagel Store in Brooklyn, which is owned by baker Scott Russilo, was the first to unveil the bagel. Overall consumer reports of the snack have been favorable. Many have stated that the mufgel looks like a bagel, but actually tastes quite a bit like a muffin. While it was initially only released for a temporary time, there is a good chance that the bakery could add it to the permanent menu.

Times Square Cereal Cafe Takes Off

The recently opened and much buzzed about Kellogg’s NYC cereal restaurant is already attracting tons of business from tourists. In a recently published article on Eater, a number of families visiting New York from all over the country said they wanted to experience a hot food trend while in the city. Even though regular bowls cost $7.50 a pop and cereal sundaes are $8.50, the visitors claimed they didn’t mind paying for the experience and felt the price was comparable to breakfast at other restaurants in the area.

Kellogg’s NYC doesn’t just serve up plain bowls of cereal, it serves nostalgia. Milk Bar chef Christina Tosi whips up breakfast concoctions containing fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, marshmallows, ice cream, Pop Tart chunks and more. You can choose one of a long list of cereal creations or customize with add-ons for an extra fee. Kellogg’s marketing guru Andrew Shripka claims that cereal sales are down, so serving up cereal creations is a way to encourage customers to recreate them at home later.

The restaurant tries to evoke childhood memories with brick interior, chalkboard walls, plastic cereal box prizes, and kid-friendly favorites like Froot Loops. Even the service process is nostalgic. Customers open up fire engine red cabinet doors to reveal brown paper grocery bags containing their treats. This is supposed to evoke memories of grocery shopping and bringing home cereal boxes.
