Product review: Quick breakfast fix proves useful in the morning

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but many students skip breakfast and opt for the extra 30 minutes of sleep in its place. Granola bars are a fast alternative, but nothing compares to a nice, warm breakfast.

Here’s where Duncan Hines’ new product acts as the perfect solution to early morning breakfast skippers. The new Perfect for Size One muffins are a quick fix to fight off morning hunger and still get that extra 30 precious minutes of sleep.

The box comes with four packages of mixture and three simple directions. Place the mix and three tablespoons of water into a mug, stir until the mixture is smooth and microwave for 1:10. Short and to the point.

Put to the test

When I first saw this product, I thought it was a really good idea and was excited to try it. I always skip breakfast because I prefer to sleep in a little later.

So, I bought the Perfect for Size One, chocolate chip muffin flavor. I was excited to try it out, but when I started the process, I became a bit skeptical. I didn’t think the goo that was my mixture would turn into a fluffy, warm muffin, but just a gross, mushy mess.

But I continued on, and stirred the mixture until it was smooth, making sure to scrape the bottom of my mug as the box directed as not to leave any dry powder at the bottom. After I finished, I placed the mug into the microwave and waited patiently.

As I watched the mug rotate in circles, the smell of the muffin filled my room as if I had just baked a whole pan of them. As the timer ticked down, I started to think that maybe this would work after all.

When the timer reached zero I took out my mug — be careful, it’s hot. And there was my muffin, fluffy and looking delicious. I grabbed a spoon and dug in, even though the box warns to let it sit for two minutes to cool.

The muffin itself was really good and tasted oven-baked. They aren’t too dry or too moist, and have the perfect muffin to chocolate chip ratio.

Overall, I would give this product a 10 out of 10. It was fast, easy and delicious and it beats a granola bar by miles.

I would recommend this product to anyone who loves sleep but also really needs to eat breakfast in the morning. It’s a fast way to get the most important meal of the day taken care of.
