“Huh? Where’s the muffins?”
Yeah right. Why ask silly questions as if you don’t already know the answer? You know darn well they went into my Food Trap to be churned by gastric juices. That’s where Duncan Hines Whole Grain Blueberry Muffins belong.
I ate one, two, (maybe) three muffins. I almost lost control, so I sent out a Twitter plea for some quick muffin therapy and received many virtual slaps of the muffin out of my mouth. One Twitterer even yelled at me in all CAPS (how rude). So I conformed.
The emphasis is on 100% whole grains. I can tell it’s the real deal, because these muffins have the same awesome whole grain aroma that comes from the amazing Ronzoni 7-Grain Pasta Blend. But no, they don’t taste like pasta. It’s a muffin all the way, complete with a “can of real blueberries” that you throw into the mix.
If you’re transitioning out of white flour foods into a whole grain extravaganza, the taste may take a wee bit of getting used to. But it’s worth it, so eat on.
There are five muffins left. I’m going to stroll past the kitchen for another peek. I won’t touch. But I’m not promising either.
