thank you so much for the time you put into trying to answer my question and you're right they probably discontinued it with all the new bagel flats and deli thins etc.

Looks like they are Thomas brand Toast R Cake Bran Muffins with Raisins. They look just like English muffins. Haven't seen these in my area, but I just did a Google search and found them. Maybe they don't sell them anymore? On the Thomas website they only have corn and apple cinnamon.
Ingredients: 1 15-oz box raisin bran 5 cup All-purpose flour 1 1/2 cup Sugar 1 1/2 cup Brown sugar 5 tsp Baking soda 1 tbsp Pumpkin spice 2 tsp Salt 4 Eggs, beaten 1 cup Melted shortening or margarine or 1 cup Vegetable oil 2 tsp Vanilla 1 qt Buttermilk
Instructions: Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Store in refrigerator in tightly sealed jar. Bake as needed in lightly greased muffin pan for 20- 30 minutes at 425 degrees.

Have not tired this recipe. It is one that I cut out of a magazine (looks like Taste of Home type recipe). Personally, I would add 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring. Also, recipe did not say this, but using dates or raisins will increase carb count (both high in carbs). If you do not have buttermilk: Add 1 T. vinegar to measuring cup, fill with milk - put in container - stir & let set at least 5 minutes, stir again before using. My calculations: 28 grams of fiber in entire recipe. Del

This is an item listed repeatedly in the nutrition tracker provided by SparkPeople. There is no recipe for it in the SparkRecipes file nor can I find anything in the message boards, the blogs, or from the SparkTeam leader. It must be worth making if they suggest it, just like they suggest the refrigerator bran muffins, which I have made and like.
