But what’s this? Starbucks have just launched a new cake which combines “the best of a muffin” with “elements of a traditional jam-filled doughnut” and which, by amazing coincidence, is filled with raspberry jam and boasts “just a hint of nutmeg” on a buttermilk base. To top it off, they’ve decided to call it the [drum roll…]“Duffin”! And, to rub nutmeg flavoured salt into the wound, Starbucks’ Duffin supplier, Rich Products Corp, has registered DUFFIN as a UK trade mark and is applying for a Community Trade Mark (or “CTM” - an EU-wide registration).
