When Sweets Collide

Two dessert trends are exploding simultaneously in San Diego--frozen yogurt and cupcakes. I'm puzzled. I'm curious. I'm trying to use logic when perhaps something else is at play.

But, answer me this: why?

Starbucks may be closing 600 storefronts, but frozen yogurt and cupcakes are seemingly everywhere now. What's your take? Is dessert the new lipstick or skirt length as a measurement of the state of the economy? Do we just want to get fat and forget our troubles? Or is something entirely different going on? And, do you think these are just passing fads or sweets that will stay in demand?

Help me solve the mystery--click on "comments" below and enlighten us with your wisdom!
