I cannot resist walking past this place, I try, I really do and I even did today but did a complete u turn and went in. It went like this.....
I am not going to Muffin Break, I am not going to Muffin Break, I am not going to Muffin Break, oh yes I am!! I am going to Muffin Break.
I love this place as I know I'm going to get something which is gluten free. Today's delight was a Banana Chocolate Chip, I wasn't going to get away with saying they were healthy raisins was I? Nope definitely chocolate chips.
It tasted just gorgeous as they always do. Someone at the Muffin Break bakery has these baked to perfection. They don't crumble to pieces when you unravel the paper case and you can cut into it really well without it disintegrating. So moist inside, a true delight, they are a decent size and very filling.
I had never experienced savoury muffins before visiting this establishment. I remember trying my first ham, cheese and tomato muffin and thinking that it is a pizza in a muffin, this is just not going to work but it so does. A nice refreshing change if you are not feeling in a sweet mood. They only tend to have a couple of flavours available on one day but they do vary the selection quite well so you are not met with the same flavour every time. There are dairy free options too and all the muffins are very clearly labelled which is another added bonus.
There are a wide range of drinks available to accompany your food and it's quite reasonably priced too. Nice friendly staff so I tend to visit when ever I venture into Derby. I do have a loyalty card so tend to make a good saving now and again, well worth having one if you visit regularly
So a happy 'free from' customer here, I just need to go back more often and work myself through all the flavours. Oh what a great idea! I could just be a chief taster and find it in my heart to inform the nation of just how good these babies taste. It's a dirty job but if it came up and the job existed I would have to apply.
For now though I will go and count how many syns I've blown on Slimming World, I know, please lets not think about it. I've accepted the fact that I have no will power at all. I will eat muffin first and think about the syns later. Life is too bloomin short sometimes. I have probably said it before but I don't intend having the conversation with St Peter at the pearly gates on how I wish I had just had that choc chip muffin before I popped off this mortal earth. I have exercised so I'm taking that as a fair deal and I am happy so that's even more important.
See, muffins are good for your mental health if they make you happy and free from ones are even better if you participate in the old restricted diet. I should be a life guru coach type person shouldn't I? Maybe not, people would flock for miles to ask me the answer to their problems and I just say 'eat cake'. not good if you come to me for dietary advice eh? I do have an answer for that though.........low fat cake.
Anyway for now I will leave you but if you haven't experienced muffin break do go and visit, tell me what you think by leaving me a comment below. If you would like any information about the place they do have a very informative website at:
Take care for now and I will catch you for a bit of Autism talk tomorrow with Autism Support Saturday.
