Thomas’ Gets Sweet And Savory With New Maple Bacon English Muffins

When we need a quick breakfast fix, nothing beats a smooth pat of butter over a freshly-toasted English Muffin. Seriously, it takes less than a minute and you’ll be out the door and on the road in the blink of an eye.

In honor of National English Muffin Day, Thomas’ released a limited-time flavor that’s sure to pique the interest of any breakfast lover.

The new Bacon Buttermilk Pancake English Muffins boast the sweet maple taste of buttermilk pancakes with the savory treat of tiny bacon-flavored bits.

If you do have a few minutes to spare in the morning, we highly recommend throwing a fried egg and some sharp cheddar onto a toasted English Muffin. You’ll pretty much have all the flavor components of a breakfast platter in sandwich form.

Not a bad start to your day.

You can find the new Bacon Buttermilk Pancake English Muffins at participating grocery retailers nationwide through May 21.

Thomas’ Adds PIZZA & PARTY CAKE Bagels For A Limited Time

Thomas-Pizza-Cake-01

Thomas’ Bagels just released two new flavors that definitely caught our attention. For a limited time, the English Muffin and bagel brand will be offering new Pizza bagels and Party Cake bagels.

The pizza bagels are seasoned with tomato, garlic, onion, basil, and oregano to recreate the aromatic flavor one would find in the iconic Italian dish. On a sweeter note, the mini Party Cake bagels made with sweet, colorful, sprinkles to bring the party out of your bite.

Could probably through a ton of cheese and sauce on these bagel slices and have ourselves a bit of a pizza party. Then, cake.

Both of the new bagels will be available at participating grocery retailers for a limited time. Prices may vary depending on the location.

Thomas Has New Salted Caramel English Muffins

Salted Caramel English Muffin

With salted caramel taking new forms from ice cream to lattes and beyond, it’s not surprising that Thomas has decided to develop a salted caramel flavor. The limited-edition flavor will soon be available in two different 6-pack products, bagels and English muffins.

I tried the English muffin version. For my first taste I popped the muffin into the toaster and spread butter on it just as I would with a normal English muffin.

There seem to be little chunks of salted caramel in the English muffin itself as you can see here. Other than that, they look fairly similar to normal Thomas English muffins. The chunks are apparently similar to their limited edition pumpkin spice English muffins and bagels which have pumpkin chunks.

The chunks definitely drew some doubt into me that there would be strong flavor, or a flavor recognizable as salted caramel would be there at all.

After my first bite, my mouth was overwhelmed with the taste of salted caramel. My skepticism was dead wrong. I probably should have realized this, but I wasn’t expecting to be so completely overwhelmed by the sweetness.

I do think that either the butter or toasting helped bring out the flavor. Later, after my mouth was a little less overwhelmed with caramel flavor, I did try another one. This time plain not bothering to alter it in any way and it was definitely less overwhelming flavor wise. The salted caramel flavor was still there but it was nowhere near as prominent, although this might be better for people who don’t want something as overwhelmingly sweet.

The English muffins will be sold at about $4.49 and have 150 calories per serving with 1 gram of fact and sold at about $4.49. The bagels will be sold at $4.79 and have 260 calories per serving with 1.5 grams of fat.

Salted Caramel lovers can get their sweet tooth ready for June 27 when the limited edition flavor will begin to be available in stores nationwide in both its English muffin and bagel forms. They will be available until mid-October.

Dirty Laundry — Punisher Fan Film or Awesome Jack Daniel’s Commercial?

Last weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con International, former Punisher star Thomas Jane unveiled a fan film he made in homage to his character Frank Castle. The ten-minute short, entitled #DIRTYLAUNDRY features the actor reprising his role in a very graphic and gory manner.

But is this more than a mere fan film? Because in the second half, a bottle of Jack Daniel’s plays a very prominent role in what could possibly be the best instance of product placement ever.

Check out the video below and decide for yourself!
