Thomas' discontinued their Carb Consider Bagels, but they have come out with the Thomas' Light English Muffins. Now, these DO have carbs, but many ready-to-eat low carb breakfast foods have been discontinued. (More on discontinued low carb products here.) If you can eat more carbs because you are on South Beach, or if you are on maintenance, or if you just want to cheat but not too badly, you can consider these.
Both my kids will eat these. I have tasted them and they are pretty good. They are very similar to the regular Thomas' English Muffin's texture -- you just have to toast them longer (I think) than the regular English Muffins.
Franky, if McDonald's had a choice to use these rather than the normal white English Muffins in their egg sandwiches, it would give a huge boost to their nutrition menu!
Judging by the shelf space that these English Muffins are taking in my local grocery store, and the fact that they are also available at Wal-mart and Target, I would guess that they are doing pretty well.
