Can we talk about the word dumplings for a second?
Why dumplings? I mean I get it…you’re dumping in a dollop of dough into a bubbling pot of soup. But the ‘dump’ part of that has a bit of a negative ring to it.
I’m thinking that these guys are having a branding crisis and need to be ‘rebranded’ to DARLINGS.
Don’t you agree???
DARLINGS, not dumplings.
Because these heaps of perfectly cooked dough and just that…DARLING.
They are so darling to my taste buds. Darling, Darling, Darlings. 😉
