Yesterday I decided to stay at work for the extra hours required to finish up a project. Because of that I told The Wife that she should do something “fun” and that entailed baking a few mini pies as shown. Not only do they taste awesome they got me thinking about how tons of type of foods are presented as “Mini” or some other word for small and are more popular than the original.
Mini Wheats – Good luck trying to buy regular wheats, they are few and far between.
Personal Pan Pizza – Heck yes I will read a book for a free one of these. Even though they end up tasting like a regular pizza with more crust, everyone thinks these are better (apparently due to size!).
Mini-Burgers – It’s hard to say a lot of these are worth while, yet White Castle and a ton of chain restaurants apparently can stay in business pushing 1/16th pound burgers better than 1 lbers.
Do you buy into the hype and prefer little/mini food options to the full size alternatives? Do you see it as a smaller portion at an increased cost like I do? I’d like to hear your thoughts on this mini food craze.
