Favorite English muffin?

I wanted to buy english muffins the other day, after not doing so for several decades, and was surprised to find many varieties of Thomases and many brands other than Thomases. I wound up getting a traditional Thomases, but what are your favorite english muffins these days?
Original Thomases. Second fave I'd say are Pepperidge Farm sourdough, and Van de Kamp's and Trader Joe's sourdough after that. There is not a huge gap between these, to my taste, so when the VdK ones are on sale (as they often are) I'll happily get those. I did try the Wolferman's a couple of times, but could never get them crunchy around the edges, which I absolutely require, unless I burned them...and then the insides were still kinda gummy.
Yeah, muffins have definitely fallen into the too-many-choices category, as have bagels and most other packaged breads. It's nice to have several to choose from, but not when it takes me half a day to decide which of the 35 varieties of rye bread I want for my ham sandwich!
the bigger sandwich size thomases...because bigger is better! (and makes a MUCH better eggs benny!)
Thomas English Muffins, but I'm far from a purist as far as English Muffins go... Sometimes, I'll substitute crumpets for muffins when I'm making Eggs Benedict with Duck or Goose Eggs. At least I make the hollandaise out of the same kind of yolks, though...so we have continuity!
