Yes, but how do they taste?

Crumpets are full of nommy-ness!
Super hot and toasted and slathered in lots of butter...
I'm so happy to be british and can have crumpets whenever I want without any hassle.
Although I feel I should try and make them from scratch one day...

Impossible. Crumpets cannot be constructed by mere mortals. They're assembled by Thor's Baker using magic flour on Mount Doom. Or something. Wait, do they even have flour in them? See, I'm not permitted to understand!

i bet that one of the gods commited treason and sent the ingredients and recipe to mortals so as we don't feel so bad

Michael Flanders said of his trip to America: "We also had all sorts of food that you can't get here in England, such as English muffins."

I never got the joy of crumpets. Gimme a toasted muffin any day.

I want a crumpet :( Closest things I have are:
Fish and Chips
. . .and those only count because they're British. >_>

We call them English Muffins in America... AND THEY ARE NOTHING LIKE MUFFINS.
They're pretty good though.

My husband made crumpets once. They weren't really like english muffins. I didn't know they were the same thing. They were weird. Mostly their purpose was to deliver maximum amounts of delicious buttery goodness, a function they performed admirably.

I don't think crumpets are the same as English muffins. They have separate Wikipedia articles, anyway. I can't figure out what the difference is, though.

crumpets rock :D specially with peanut butter on :3

Crumpets are delicious. So are fungi. They should be eaten separately

Crumpets and English muffins are entirely different things. Yes, they are both toasted and slathered with butter/margarine and some sort of spread (I <3 honey or golden syrup on crumpets and strawberry jam or Vegemite on muffins ;P), but that doesn't make them the same.
That's like equating a Pop Tart with a slice of bread. Same function, but completely different flavour, shape, make and texture.

P.S. These comics are absolutely adorable and, at times, hilarous. Awesome work, Li :)
Nice to see something so fabulous come from a fellow Southern Hemisphere-ite (I'm an Aussie).

English muffins are gross and not at all crumpets! Crumpets are chewy and have holes in them - english muffins are just like bread really - but not as good. I tried to make crumpets when I was working at an american summer camp - so the kids could taste the yumminess - however I found out after failing that they are apparently notoriously difficult to bake. Who knew? (ps baked in a frying pan... wierd)

I love both crumpets and English muffins but they're pretty different. Crumpets stay damp, even while toasted, while English muffins crisp up, so crumpets don't crunch and are more dense. Slightly different ingredients or proportions, I'd guess.

I love the expression in the last panel!!
