      Mostly blueberries with just a little muffin holding them together. Irresistible!

    2. They have been selling them ever since they bought Jordan Marshes Enchanted Village. I bought some last year (two years ago?) and they are exactly the same. Sickly sweet and more like blueberry cake with way too much sugar on top.

      1. Gosh the Jordan Marsh blueberry muffin is one of those eternal Boston Chowhound memes can't believe they actually came back from the dead.

        1. I first had them bout 20 years ago when they were sold at the Rainbow Cafe(I think thats was the name) at the Copley Mall. When I found out My husbands Babcia (Grandmother) used to work at Jordan Marsh I asked if him if she ever brought some home he said that she did but he did not want/appreciate them
          at the time. The fool!

          1. These were such a treat for me and my sisters when we had a shopping run at Jordan Marsh. I blame these muffins for my lifelong obsession with blueberries. find someone who has good reason to drive to Jordan's so I can get my hand on these.

              Now all we need to locate are Gilcrist's macaroons, Warmuth's prune danish, and Dorothy Muriel's Beacon Hill cake, and we can have a total 1960's reunion! Miss them all.

                Lydia Shire was on a lengthy quest to reconstruct the butterscotch sauce used for ice cream sundaes at Bailey's—another local taste memory. I think I only ever had Bailey's hit fudge myself.
