Thomas' 12-grain English muffs

Does everybody already know there was an actual Thomas – Samuel Bath Thomas, my my – who in 1880 created the English muffin? (which was a derivative of the crumpet. But hey, EVERYONE knows THAT.) Well ta-da Thomas’ has a new flavor: 12-grain. Thomas' website doesn’t list the 12 grains (but NYCE does! see below*); suffice it to say, you’ll feel oh-so righteous about eating toast. It's one in a so-called new Hearty Grains line along w/ Multi-Grain, Honey Wheat, Oat Bran, and 100% Whole Wheat. Longtime Thomas’ fans might recognize honey wheat, whole wheat, and oat bran as old news but a spokesperson (OK, it was a chick) says they tweaked the formula and thus can call them new. 12-grain, however = really R new

*wheat barley oats rye buckwheat rice millet amaranth farina flaxseed triticale sorghum = 12

Hi, TG! Love, love your blog. Just read about the South Beach Diet frozen pizza from Kraft. Newsweek says the stuff has 14 g of fiber per serving (RDA=25 to 35g). No mention of fat g's or cals -- or flavor. Cheers, Martha

notice, i don't have caps on my computer either.
anyway, i'm kinda slow but wanted to comment on you blurb about the new h-d ice cream flavors. they sound oversweet and yucky, and i know you are from the east coast, so you must know they are holding out on their greatest ice cream: boysenberry. it's yum! about the only ones they offer us here that I buy are rum raisin, often, chocolate, fairly often, and sometimes bailey's irish cream or, if it is in season, black walnut.

miss the maple walnut i used to get at carvel's in new york. don't remember who made it, but there was also a pretty good canteloupe ice cream -- though it wasn't as good as the fresh fruit with vanilla ice cream spooned over it.

ben & jerry's is for palates that who haven't outgrown their infantile sweet fetish and bluebell is greatly overrated by chauvinistic texans.

sign me old enough to have blue hair like you
