It's widely accepted that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This is an easy maxim to accept because breakfast can also be the most delicious meal of the day. Unless you're eating a muffin. When you can have a cinnamon roll, a sticky bun or a scone, why on Earth would you ever choose a muffin? When you can have a buttery, flaky croissant or a cinnamon sugar doughnut, how could you even entertain picking a muffin instead? It's a ludicrous decision that we just can't accept.
Muffins are kind of the worst. Sure, there are decent muffins out there -- and there might even be good ones. Excellent muffins are hard to come by, however, and they must be homemade. Store-bought muffins shouldn't even be placed in the same category as homemade muffins, but even if they are made by hand, they run the risk of, well, sucking. At best they're an inferior breakfast food and at worst they're total disasters.
Here are 11 reasons muffins are the worst and we wish they'd just go away.
