Actress Mindy Kaling can't get enough of Zingerman's

By Jessica Webster


Would you send Mindy Kaling some Zingerman's stollen?

Mindy Kaling, perhaps best known for her work on "The Office" and "The Mindy Project," became something of a Zingerman's devotee during the time she spent in Ann Arbor filming "The Five Year Engagement" in 2011. She waxed ecstatic about the deli (and its Reuben sandwiches) in a blog post last fall, but clearly Ann Arbor's food mecca is still on her mind.

"Someone send me Zingerman Deli's stolen," she tweeted Tuesday morning.

Stollen is a traditional German holiday bread-like cake, spiked with rum, dried fruits and nuts. If someone was so inclined (and had Mindy Kaling's address), stollen is still available from Zingerman's mail order. Just $40 for an 18-ounce loaf. But Mindy is worth it, right?

Lol about's idea of what constitutes 'news', or 'content'...

The modus operandi: Egregious celebrity worship with Zingerman's spread all over the top. And I mean 'over the top'. Enough already. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

She only gets some if she learns how to spell it.

That's a mere $36.55 / lb. Mindy's Hollywood contracts certainly afford her the opportunity to spend that kind of dough on bread-cakes.

Seriously? Could we possibly name drop anymore? And why do people waste so much time following the tweets of "celebrities"...don't you about you but c'mon there's more to having a life than "living" vicariously through tweets....

Oh, Mindy....don't follow the sheep.


Tue, Dec 18, 2012 : 8:32 p.m.

"Just $40..." Hahaha

This tweet may have actually been associated with the fun she had on Monday. Stollen, with its hidden attributes makes a pretty good "hair of the dog".

Tell Mindy to order her own Zingerman's stollen online. She can afford to buy it herself.

Good point. I think I'll DM her MY address. She can send me a stollen AND a make-your-own-Reuben kit.

Could we have a one year moratorium on mentioning this deli for the sake of mentioning this deli? Please?


Tue, Dec 18, 2012 : 7:36 p.m.

Yes, please. There are those who frequent this site who can't seem to stand the success of others.

A whole year?
