Trophy Cupcakes drops the ball

SEATTLE, Washington - My favorite cupcake at Trophy Cupcakes in Wallingford has been the Peanut Butter & Jelly flavor. They used to only sell it on Saturday and Sunday. They then started selling it four days a week, and I warned them that that would make this cupcake less special. They said it was "still special."

Now, it's gone, they don't make it at all. Perhaps temporarily, perhaps permanently. It seems to have been replaced by a Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor, but this is just not going to cut it.

UPDATE! See comments - someone allegedly from Trophy Cupcakes has responded, saying that the PB&J will be re-instituted on Good Friday this year. For the Jews out there - that's March 21 this year in the United States. Mark Your Calendars.

While I truly respect your cupcake opinions, you always were a bit delusional about that PB&J! ;-) I didn't know about the new Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcake. Now those two flavors marry well together in my book! You know where I will be next Thursday...

I would not get the Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcake again. No originality! They just used the standard chocolate cake with peanut butter flavored icing. And they love it at Trophy! It had no ooomph. At least your PB&J was unique, even though I personally disagreed that it tasted good.

Why didn't you just email us and ask?!

The PB & J cupcake went on winter vacation to make room for holiday flavors. The PB & J will be back on Good(er) Friday.

Chocolate and peanut butter has its loyal fans, as many as PB&J. I'm sure it all goes back to our childhoods. We have yet to find a single cupcake that pleases all of the kiddies all the time. But we're working on it.

Maggie D,

I have lots of visions for the Chocolate and Peanut Butter cupcake but my biggest thing with it really was there was no gooey peanut butter on the inside of the cupcake. That just seemed wrong to me. :-( At least Trophy has the solid Carrot Cake one on Thursdays to make up for it. My favorite unique cupcake that Trophy has had was the Yam one. Delicious with that marshmallow meringe topping! But then as you said it does come down to personal taste preferences...
