WHAT IT IS: Old-fashioned English muffins.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: They’re thicker and more dense than supermarket English muffins—and more flavorful, too.
WHY WE LOVE IT: Great taste, quality ingredients and many different varieties.

.Yes, We Know the Muffin Man: Wolferman’s English Muffins

CAPSULE REPORT: We first heard about Wolferman’s English Muffins about twenty years ago. We read the mail-order catalog from the company in Shawnee Mission, Kansas* that sold gourmet English muffins in regular, raisin, and perhaps blueberry varieties. But despite customer testimonies to their superiority, we could not be convinced that they would be so much more wonderful than the supermarket Thomas’s we enjoyed daily. We declined to dispatch UPS to bring us a box.

*Now located in Lenexa, Kansas. Wolferman’s was purchased by Harry & David in 2008.

We stand corrected. We have just finished consuming four dozen of Wolferman’s muffins: one package of each of 12 flavors (we did this over four weeks, we hasten to say). They are well worth going out of one’s way for: We will definitely have to dispatch UPS for a more, given the new flavors.

Another nice thing: the English muffins come in three sizes, including a mini that’s great for snacks, hors d’oeuvre and carb cutting.

The muffins are certified kosher by OU.
