Kinnikinnick Tapioca Rice English Muffins... if you're in the mood for a biscuit.


See, I'm eating one of these right now (and getting butter all over the keyboard) and it tastes REALLY good... but this is NOT an English muffin. It's sort of a fluffy, sweet-tasting biscuit. And if you're in the mood for a biscuit, this is the one.

This is another one of those situations where every time you eat one serving, you can't help but recall that you just ate a dollar and some change. I believe I picked this package of 4 "muffins" for $5 or more.

The size & shape is off - entirely too big to slice into halves and pop into the toaster (I had to sort of mangle one side to get it out). I'm still not sure why they make GF English muffins so damn big, but if you have a toaster oven, it'll be no problem. Unfortunately the texture is a little too crumbly to slice into thirds, which is what I do with the Foods By George English muffins (which I'll get to another day).

But yeah, overall, these are damn tasty biscuits. I'd suggest having them with something simple like butter or jam at dinnertime.

Oh, PS - they are made with egg, so these are not vegan muffins. The main flour ingredient is rice flour and they also include tapioca starch and potato starch. Most interesting ingredient of the day? Pea protein. Hooray for veggies!

I've given up on Kinnikinnick Products, I just haven't found one that doesn't have dairy in it or tastes like it should.
