National Honey Board Partners with Thomas’ to Set Your Tastebuds Abuzz!
Nature's Sweetest Gift
Now more than ever, people are looking for natural ingredients and it’s hard to imagine anything more wholesome and natural than honey. A true back-to-basics ingredient, honey is a sweet gift from nature, created by bees from the nectar of plants and flowers. Did you know that the bees in a beehive may collectively travel as much as 55,000 miles and visit more than two million flowers to gather enough nectar to make just one pound of honey? With only one ingredient, honey is a product that you can feel good about feeding to your family and friends.
Honey is a culinary marvel that not only imparts a unique flavor to any dish, but also balances and enhances the flavor profiles of other ingredients in any recipe, making honey the perfect partner for any variety of Thomas’ English muffins or bagels.
Breakfast's Favorite Team
Over 135 years ago Samuel Bath Thomas created the Original “Nooks & Crannies” English muffin after moving from England to the United States. He later opened his own bakery in New York City in 1880, and Thomas’ English muffins and bagels would soon become a popular part of the American breakfast. Today, Thomas’ English muffins are the #1 selling English muffin in America.
Thomas’ distinctive taste, texture and flavor come from their special "Nooks & Crannies" way of griddle baking. This process, unchanged for over 135 years, uses quality ingredients to make the distinctively coarse-grained, yeast-raised dough. They are split, not sliced, to keep their unique, toast-up-perfectly texture.
Thomas’ Light Multi-Grain English Muffins have just 100 calories each, and 8 grams of fiber to keep your diet in check to let you go all out on toppings – like a drizzle of sweet and all-natural honey!
