I want to start with the fact that I am getting no compensation for blogging about Wolferman's. I'm doing this because I've been buying their products for a good twenty years.
I'm not sure why we first ordered from Wolferman's. I believe that somehow one of their catalogs ended up in our mailbox (this was before the internet folks). My roommate thought it would be fun to order a sampler pack of some of their English Muffins, some crumpets and some lemon and raspberry curd.
My first revelation was the lemon curd. I'd never tried it before. I loved the tart flavor and I've been a fan of the stuff ever since (though I admit I usually bake with it, rather than slather it on an English Muffin).
Loved the crumpets, again, a first for me. Warmed with some of the lemon or raspberry curd crumpets were like having dessert for breakfast.
But what I really became a fan of, was their English Muffins. The "Signature" versions of the muffins, which I prefer, are much bigger than the kind your normally find in grocery stores. Denser too. Each of the Signature muffins is about 15 ounces. The muffins hold up really well to actually cooking with them (as opposed to just toasting and buttering). They're also great when melting some cheese on top (Love using them on my Grilled Cheese with Pickle recipe).You can buy the muffins in smaller sizes too...traditional and mini (the mini ones make great little treats for groups).
Over the years I've seen different flavors of their muffins come and go. Currently they sell Original Recipe, San Francisco Sourdough, Sweet Harvest Wheat, Cherry Blossom, Cheddar Cheese, Chocolate Chip, Cinnamon and Raisin, Maple Almond, Cinnamon Chip, Multi-Grain and Honey, Cranberry Citrus and Wild Maine Blueberry. Out of those I prefer the Original, Sourdough, Cheddar Cheese (which makes great grilled cheese or ham) and Wild Maine Blueberry. We currently have in our freezer some Jalapeno Cheddar Cornmeal and Sundried Tomato & Herb English Muffins which make awesome sandwiches.
Besides English Muffins Wolferman's also sells Pancake Mix, Scones, Tea Breads, Crumpets, English Muffin
Bread, Pastries, Nut Butters, Fruit Spreads and Preserves, Bagels, Coffee and sheesh, just about anything you'd want to serve for breakfast and brunch. Wolferman's also makes wonderful gift baskets and sample packs if you'd like to give something a try. We bought tons of different flavored muffins and put in our Christmas gift baskets this past year. They periodically have good sales on their products.
Depending on how many packages you buy, the muffins (four to a pack) will run you about $5 for each package. Seems kinda expensive when you can buy a huge pack for under $5 of the cheaper english muffins at the grocery store. I admit, I really like Thomas's English Muffins with their nooks and cranny's, but I also love the substantial size of the Wolferman's not to mention the different flavors and what can be done with them.
Over the years I've had a few problems either with receiving the wrong item or the muffins coming crushed in the packaging. I've never had a problem with customer service, they've always sent out the correct or complete item quickly and at no charge to me.
I hate the Wolferman's website. I have them send a paper catalog to my home which you can also access online. It's much easier using the catalog to figure out what they offer than using the website. If you go to the bottom of the first page of their website, you can access the online catalog there.
And last but not least, Wolferman's doe's include some recipes with their catalogs and online so I think you can guess where I'm going with all this (grin).
