“After 140 years of delicious memories, we couldn’t think of a better way to commemorate our milestone anniversary than by compiling our favorite recipes that fans can enjoy for years to come,” said Eduardo Zarate, Senior Director of Marketing for Thomas’. “To continue the excitement and really ‘toast’ to this monumental year, we’re also proud to debut the new Thomas’ website, From our new site to the exciting cookbook, we’re looking forward to serving up tasty moments for another 140 years!”

Thomas’ dates back to 1880 when Samuel Bath Thomas created his original English Muffin in New York City using a secret process that included griddle baking to create a Nooks and Crannies® English Muffin. The company has since added bagels and breakfast breads, including a line of swirl breads, to its breakfast offerings. Today, Thomas’ sells the #1 English Muffin and #1 grocery bagel in the U.S. For a full list of Thomas’ products and where to buy them, please visit,
