Hi all,
I have been having cravings for english muffins since my recent surgery.  I only eat Kavanah's english muffins which are manufactured in Rhode Island, you can find them at local markets, local cumberland farms (thats a convenience store in new england the store brand is kavanahs just in a diff package with the stores name on it). I use to eat Thomas' for a while when I was younger then deceided 1 day that they tasted like vinegar and no longer would eat the.  My folks at the time thought I was imagining it until they read the ingredients list and found vinegar as an ingredient.
It seems when my belly is upset after having a BM if I toast up an english muffin and put I cant believe its not butter light it helps to calm it down.  Not sure if it is the baking soda in them or what but so far so good.  I wish I could have P butter on them but last year I was diagnosed with peannut allergies (I use toeat PB all the time) I cannot use jams or jellies sine I am allergic to most fruit...darn oral allergy syndrome whem most ppl are allergic by means of oral allergy syndrome they typically have GI symptoms...not me I have anaphalactic type issues.  I stay clear of all fruits and veggies I have issues with and the longer I have had issues with that item the worse the reaction.  But I am happy they can settle my belly :-)

I love them, too but I don't really eat them anymore. Sugar and carbs are bad for me and my abscesses. :-)
My husband got me hooked on english muffins with butter AND peanut butter. So fattening but sooooooo gooooood.
Hope you're feeling better,dragonfly :-)

I am also a English muffin lover but I put a slice of processed cheese on them.  On a good day I do the egg, ham and cheese........but I pay for that one usually.;o)  I've never tried them with peanut butter but I'm always looking for new ways to try food.=o)
