We love free things. We also love cupcakes. When you combine those two things together you get a glorious thing: free cupcakes. It just rolls off the tongue nicely doesn’t it? But what would you put yourself through to get a free cupcake vs actually paying for one? Would you wait in line for 15+ minutes? Apparently so.
At 10:30, the free cupcake line snaked around the corner
I had an errand to run down at the circle and thought I too would stop in for my very own free cupcake. As I rounded the circle my eyes got wide and I let out a little laugh. I didn’t expect a line of people down the block waiting for a free piece of cake that would take them 5 minutes or less to eat. Where did they come from I wondered? It was 10:30 in the morning. Were they on an early lunch break? Were they unemployed and happy to get anything for free? I did notice that there were far more women in line than men. Do women like cupcakes more than men do? I suppose that wouldn’t surprise me.
The glorious, free cupcake
In the end I opted to go on with my day and go back to Hello Cupcake at another time when I could pay a couple of bucks for my cupcake and avoid a giant (Great Depression like) line. For those of you who waited, was it worth it?
