The new Market Basket in Manchester NH has crumpets - Sharrock's British Style Crumpets made in New Bedford MA. I love these - very different from English muffins, when toasted a little crunchy and the little holes are perfect butter sponges! YUM.

  1. I'm pretty sure I've seen these at Whole Foods too, and the packaging makes me suspect that they are the same ones that are sold at Trader Joe's. I agree, they are a wonderful item.

    1. re: sciencediet

      you are correct but at a lower price at MB, last week I paid $1.99, great for Breakfast , with some strawberry jam and a slice of cheddar cheese

    2. Crumpets --- If I've ever heard a call-out for generous amounts of butter and jam, this is it. Thanks for the tip.

          I couldn't resist seeking them out. The MB in Concord (Ft. Eddy Rd.) keeps them not in the bread aisle, but on a table near the deli and cheese area.... don't know if other MB stores stock them the same way. They were out of regular, but had cinnamon so I grabbed a package. Totally sCRUMPtious and a nice change from toast or an English muffin.

          Nutritional info on package indicates Fat Free/No Cholesterol, 110 calories each. They're mostly just carbs and fiber (8% of daily per each), but of course that changes once I added some buttah!!!
