My local natural store in Astoria, Sai Organics, just started carrying a few products from Foods by George. The company is based in Mahwah, NJ, so their products should start showing up in more stores in the area.
First on my list to try were the Cinnamon and Current English Muffins.
First of all, I was stunned by the low calorie count in these babies – only 220 for a HUGE muffin. This thing is like two hockey pucks stuck together – only much more delicious and less hard and plastic. They were $5.49 for four muffins, but sooooooo worth it! They have the exact texture of English muffins, only BIGGER!
I’m sure these would be pretty simple to make, because they only have a few ingredients, but it’s the guar gum that gives them that great chewy bite.
I made some honey cinnamon butter and slathered it on a toasted muffin. (2 T softened butter, 2 T honey, 1 tsp cinnamon). I also tried one with peanut butter, and one with normal butter, and I’m thinking of putting cream cheese on the last one I have.
Sai Organics also started carrying their little personal-pan pizzas and pizza crusts. I hope they get the crumb cake in though.
