Crumbs Bake Shop, a New York-based chain that opened in 2003 and closed in July 2014, offered dozens of flavors of cupcakes in sizes that ranged from 1-inch to a whopping 6 1/2 inches in diameter. The calorie and nutrition content of each cupcake varied depending on its size and ingredients.

Size Matters

A “signature” Crumbs cupcake size was 4 inches, and cupcakes of that size featured from 450 calories to about 800 calories. The smaller “taste” and “classic” cupcakes, which measured 1 inch and 2 1/2 inches, respectively, had proportionally lower calorie counts.

Flavor Samples

Many Crumbs’ cupcakes came in at about 500 calories each. The Dulce de Leche offered 470 calories, for example; the Cherry Cobbler had 480; the Cappuccino had 520; the Cookie Dough had 540; and the Carrot Cake had 600.

Other Nutrients

Crumbs’ cupcakes were high in fat and carbs. A single signature cupcake offered an average of 25 to 35 grams of fat and 50 to 100 grams of carbohydrates. Crumbs did not provide information about the amounts of sugar, protein or other nutrients in its cupcakes. Nutritionist Erin Palinski-Wade, collaborating with the “New York Daily News,” found that a typical Crumbs cupcake had between 50 and 100 grams of sugar.
