Last week, Crumbs officially closed all of its stores, and stopped selling their giant, face-sized cupcakes online and in grocery stores. We mourned the loss of the desserts that went hand-in-hand with the Google search: Can you die from sugar poisoning (not diabetes)? But good news for all you who don’t want to have to eat a normal sized cupcake. Marcus Lemonis, star of the reality show The Profit, has teamed up with the owner of Dippin’ Dots to buy the cupcake giant. Now back from its sugary early death, Crumbs is going to re-open at an undisclosed date as a “sweets and snacks” store and will sell Dippin’ Dots and other snacks like Doc’s popcorn, Mr. Green’s Tea Ice Cream, and gluten free baked goods.
Honestly, I don’t really care that much about Crumbs, the real news is that you can now buy Dippin’ Dots all over the city. (This is really exciting for me, as I once got one of my friends to drive me to a mall for the express purpose of getting banana split Dippin’ Dots. You know they don’t sell them anywhere except for malls and baseball games?)
