Starbucks U.K. solidified the chain’s rep as the dorky dad of the food world by coming way too late to the Cronut party with the Duffin, a sugar-dusted muffin with a jelly-filled centre. Now a popular London bakery is claiming that the product is a blatant ripoff of its own muffin-doughnut hybrid, which it sells under the same name. Like any super-important breaking news, the scandal is being tracked by minute-to-minute updates in the press, as well as its own Twitter hashtag: #Duffingate.
