ISO Port Muffins - the "Three Meal" muffin
I greatly enjoyed a "Port" (Portuguese) muffin in Vermont made by Central Bakery Distributors in Fall River. Website can be found here: http://www.3mealmuffin.com/.
Has anyone ever seen these anywhere locally? I emailed them on the site, but haven't heard anything. I'm hoping that this local distributor also distributes locally. Boston would be preferable, but I'm willing to travel.
I have seen similar muffins in Christmas Tree Shop's bread department. They are like and english muffin but sweeter and larger diameter.
I think these guys make them:
48 Walnut St
Peabody, MA 01960
Phone number (978) 531-2101
And you might try some of the various Portuguese stores/bakeries on Cambridge Street.
If you ever et down to the Fall River/New Bedford area, try the Tony's Bakery bolos (the Portuguese term for these muffins). I grew up in New Bedford, and having spent much of the past 3 months there on and off caring for my elderly parents, I was amazed at how much better the Tony's bakery type were than the other brands I ate as a youth. I have seen them at various Ocean State Job Lots, but nowehere else up this way. Perhaps some of the smaller markets in Cambridge may have some, since there seems to be a small enclave of Portuguese folks there. Good luck, and man are they good!
