Starbucks in the UK recently unveiled a new, sugary confection. The Duffin, a doughnut and muffin lovefest features an oozing jelly center. But, it didn't take long for the Duffin drama to begin.
According to The Guardian, London tearoom Bea's of Bloomsbury says it invented the Frankenfood -- and its name. While we await the outcome of Duffingate 2013, let's have a look at some other interesting food hybrids. Like all pairings, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't.
Gross or fantastic? You be the judge. Here's what Twitter users had to say.
Which side do you come down on in the Duffin controversy? Why can't a donut just be a donut?— Dean Lockwood (@psdean) October 11, 2013
Today I tried a "duffin". Believe the hype people - they are delicious.— Rebecca Prescott (@beccaprescott) October 11, 2013
Shame on you, Starbucks. Copying an idea is not the same as "inventing" it. #duffingate— Sylke Neal-Finnegan (@OregonPRGirl) October 11, 2013
