Egg McMuffin Inventor Dies...

I don't know why it fascinates me when inventors of food products die. Maybe it's the realization that there is an actual person behind the iconic food item.

Whatever the reason, this caught my eye this morning. Herb Peterson, who in 1972 put together that perfectly round egg, with the perfectly round bacon on an improbably round English muffin, went to the Golden Arches in the sky.

Good night Muffin Man.

Give it up to Herb. You will be missed. You are responsible for inventing the powerbar of breakfast meals.
