It's been over a couple weeks now where I go to the Crumpet Shop each morning and get myself a tasty crumpet. Sometimes sweet with rasberry, strawberry, or marmalde on it. Sometimes savory with pesto, or just butter. Sometimes with eggs, or salmon. Etc etc. Why didn't people feed me crumpets before? Soooo good.

I find this thread strangely unsettling.I'm very suprised a parody thread on this hasn't "popped up" yet.

If that's the case, I'm glad I didn't mention drinking tea with my crumpets

A for effort, though.

I found crumpets at a local grocery store one day and had always wanted to try one. I loved them! Like spongy pancakes mixed with english muffins..

When I went to the UK, I bought a pack and some butter and had that all week as a snack in my hotel.

When we drove up to Seattle on our honeymoon, I found a crumpet shop near Pike Place market. Is that the one you go to? That place was packed, but good crumps there!

There is this place here in Seattle at the Pike Place Market that has been around for thirty years named The Crumpet Shop. And it's delightful. They have Crumpets, moist scones, Groats, fresh made tea, and toast where you choose how thick or thin you want it. And you can get all sorts of things on them, even Marmite... Or my favorite, Maple Butter. They're so warm and soft and yummy. I want more.

You're crazy!! I LOVE the food there!! They have chocolate digestives and the most amazing sandwiches (Brie and apple for example). I love pub food. And the only time I ever liked Indian food was there. Not to mention traditional English breakfast and scones are delightful. And possibly these crumpets!

The only thing I don't really like is the Chinese food. And there are great pizza places, but nothing like a Pizzeria you get here (although out of NYC they're not very good anyway) so I can't grab a slice...

And they have the best beer ever... John Smith. And Kinder Eggs too. Thank God I live an hour away from Vancouver BC, and that we have tons of European food at work. And crumpets are better than scones. They're warm, and a little bit crunchy on the outerside, but on the inside they're warm and soft and fluffy. Mmmm

Oh but I love a good scone with jam and clotted cream...

I wish I could type that sound Homer makes when he's thinking of some delicious item...

You can actually buy refridgerator crumpets at many supermarkets in the US. They aren't near as good as the ones I had in Merry old... but they beat thomas' English muffins by a long shot. :D

Muffins = yuck. Too many holes in them. They're like the Marshmallow Fluff of breakfast pastries

Well, I happen to like our "English" muffins, but I will seek out the crumpets!

My wife and I send her grandfather a gift basket of scones and jams from Wolferman's every Christmas.

groats are husked grains.
