McDonald's Is Going to Start Selling Muffin Tops . . . Yeah, Like "Seinfeld

posted by John Elliott -

I'm not sure if it's good that the top fast food chain in the world is getting its hottest ideas from 21-year-old sitcom episodes, but here you go.

McDonald's breakfast sales have been slumping, so they just announced a new product to turn things around:  Muffin tops. 

Yes, it looks like just the tops of muffins could hit McDonald's stores around the country very soon, and they'll come in three flavors:  Lemon poppy seed, blueberry, and double chocolate. 

And if that sounds like a familiar product to you . . . it's because there was an episode of "Seinfeld" all about selling just muffin tops back in 1997.  I mean, Elaine DID say that selling just the tops could be a million-dollar idea.

(Here's a picture of the muffin tops.  It's from an ad they ran when they were testing these out in Pennsylvania.)
