You guys and Jeff Eats both “know” that this food reviewing gig is purely a subjective call- you know, what I like, you may hate and vice versa!
With that in mind, I have literally been eating Thomas’ “Original” English Muffins my whole life!
About 2 months ago, I started eating Bays “Original” English Muffins and I gotta tell you guys- that Bays “Original” English Muffins run absolute circles around Thomas’ “Original” English Muffins! Like I just said, purely a subjective call! For me to try and tell you guys why Bays taste better would be a fruitless exercise!
Let me wrap up Bays “Original” English Muffins by saying, Bays (6 count) and Thomas’ (6 count) basically cost the same ($3.58-$3.99 depending on where you buy them), Bays “Original” English Muffins are stored in retailers’ refrigerated cabinets- Thomas’ “Original” English Muffins are stored on retailers’ standard shelves, that you guys can check bays.com for retailers/ products/ info.
This contest started on 10/17/23. This contest has a winner.

***** The Boys Farmers Market.
Jeff Eats first “reviewed” The Boys Farmers Market on 5/6/2009.
That review is reprinted below.
It is now some 5 1/2 years later- and I just wanted to tell -new as well as old- Jeff Eats’ readers that I LOVE this joint-and if you live or work anywhere-near The Boys Farmers Market make it your business to shop there…trust me, you will be thrilled that you did!

***** The Boys Farmers Market, 14378 Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33484 (561) 496-8123.
If you can “handle” its parking-lot…with senior citizens “backing in and backing out” non-stop…The Boys Farmers Market is an absolutely great place to shop for fruits, fresh squeezed juices, vegetables, baked goods, cheeses, wines, candies, seafood, meats, coffees and prepared chicken/seafood/meat dishes.
Just guessing here, but The Boys’ probably has something like 30,000 square feet of indoor space jammed with top quality FOOD. All the free samples that you’d like…and everything sold, runs circles around joints like Publix, Winn Dixie and Albertsons, not to mention-probably cheaper.
My family has been shopping at The Boys Farmers Market for years…and I have been amazed by two things…namely, that we have never been involved in a fender-bender in its parking lot & the great stuff that it sells.
The Boys has its own bakery, squeezes its own juices and prepares its own “take out” food. This joint is an absolute-winner. If you live in the Delray Beach area, you probably already know about The Boys…for those of you who don’t, you got to go shopping there…just be careful in the parking lot.
Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you…The Las Vegas based- Bronx Wanderers is one of America’s best 50s-60s-70s show bands!
Mark My Words- SRO!

The Bronx Wanderers.
Reprinted below is a December 11, 2008 story that-Jeff Eats did on 50s-80s Rock N Roll cover band- The Bronx Wanderers.
In a nutshell, in the ensuing years -The Bronx Wanderers became a gigantic “act”…
No fooling here, this 2008 Bronx “bar band”- now plays to SRO crowds at- casino showrooms, theaters, festivals, country clubs and resorts all over the United States…the band has even had a reality tv show crew chronicle its daily movemenOver the years, I’ve seen The Bironx Wanderers a handful of times-and the band definitely has a knack of keeping things “fresh”…trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that- there are just so many times that one person (even an Oldies fan like Jeff Eats) can handle hearing Sherry and Big Girls Don’t Cry…what makes the group a beautiful thing is that- 5 of its 6 members are in their 20’s bringing a hip cool-style/look/sound/vibe/energy to the classic-hits. By the way, the group’s middle-aged lead singer- keeps the Oldies’ purists happy -with fabulous “dead on” Valli, Dion, Maestro, Jay Black, Diamond covers. If this all sounds confusing, you-may appreciate my “take” on the band-after you see-it live!
If you are a fan of 50s-80s Rock N Roll, you gotta catch The Bronx Wanderers…this band is about as good as it gets!
Check the band’s website thebronxwanderers.com, there a number of 2014-2015 Florida dates in the making.

***** The Bronx Wanderers *****
I recently saw an absolutely phenomenal… Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons/Dion & The Belmonts’ tribute band called The Bronx Wanderers. In addition to featuring the hit-songs of these two legendary groups, The Bronx Wanderers have an enormous playlist of rock ‘n roll/disco hits from the 1950’s-1970’s. If “seeing is believing,” check-out the group’s website at www.thebronxwanderers.com where you will find terrific audio/video of these guys in action.
Watching this 5-member band, was like having Frankie and Dion right in front of the crowd. Amazing covers. Just so you know, these guys are also no slouches when they play the hits of such bands/acts (a partial list, in no particular order) as Jay & The Americans, Johnny Maestro & The Brooklyn Bridge, The Bee Gees, KC & The Sunshine Band, The Monkees, Neal Diamond, The Duprees, The Capris, The Beatles, The Classics, The Village People, Santo & Johnny, The Commodores and The Trammps.
The only “problem” with The Bronx Wanderers is that they are a New York based group. They very rarely get-down to South Florida… as most of their appearances are in New York and New Jersey.
Now for the good news…If you check The Bronx Wanderers’ “schedule”…you will find that the band has a number of South Florida dates in (now get this) January, 2010. I know it’s along way-off…but if you can swing it, you definitely want to see this group in action.
If you like the music of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons–Dion & The Belmonts…you will absolutely love The Bronx Wanderers.
Trust Jeff Eats on this one, Joseph’s French Toast is off the chart delicious. If the joint wasn’t so far away from Jeff Eats and Mrs Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode- we definitely would be doing a whole lot of brunches at Joseph’s Pizza!
Got a real good Italian joint for you guys to checkout, Joseph’s Pizza in Atlantic Beach.
Simple tale to tell, last week Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats, Son Jeff Eats and a couple of long-time “originally from Brooklyn” friends- “discovered” Joseph’s Pizza and I gotta tell you- the joint’s food was right on the money! Inside table & counter seating/ outside covered patio table seating, reasonably priced appetizers/ soups/ salads/ pastas/ chicken wings/ hot & cold sandwiches/ pizzas/ entrees/ desserts/ beer & wine menu, Saturday & Sunday brunch, open Tuesday-Thursday noon-9pm/ Friday noon-10pm/ Saturday 10am-10pm/ Sunday 10am-9pm/ closed on Monday.
Let’s wrap-up Joseph’s Pizza by saying- if this joint was a whole lot closer to Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode, we definitely would be real steady customers! By the way, Joseph’s fried calamari alone – is worth the price of admission and Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ long-time “originally from Brooklyn” friends picked up the bill!
You guys can check menu/prices/info at josephspizza.com.

Vanilla Fudge stands out as an iconic American rock band, renowned for their masterful reinterpretations of contemporary hit songs, notably exemplified by their rendition of “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” The original lineup boasted exceptional talents, including Mark Stein, Tim Bogert, Vince Martell, and Carmine Appice. Presently, Vanilla Fudge continues to captivate audiences on their tour with three of the original quartet: Mark Stein, Vince Martell, and Carmine Appice, complemented by Pete Bremy, who assumed Tim Bogert’s role upon his retirement in 2009.
Beyond their musical prowess, Vanilla Fudge occupies a pivotal position in music history, often recognized as a critical connection between the realms of psychedelia and the burgeoning heavy metal genre. The band’s far-reaching influence extends to major acts like The Nice, Deep Purple, Yes, Styx, Led Zeppelin, and Uriah Heep.
About Vanilla Fudge
Vanilla Fudge was one of the first American groups to infuse psychedelia into a heavy rock sound to create “psychedelic symphonic rock” an eclectic genre which would, among its many offshoots, eventually morph into heavy metal. At first, the band did not record original material, they were best known for their dramatic heavy, slowed-down arrangements of contemporary pop songs which they developed into works of epic proportion. Originally, Vanilla Fudge was a blue-eyed soul cover band called The Pigeons, formed in New Jersey in 1965. In late 1966, organist, Mark Stein, bassist, Tim Bogert and guitarist, vocalist and US Navy veteran, Vince Martell drafted drummer and vocalist, Carmine Appice, a disciple of the renowned Joe Morello (Dave Brubeck Band) and a seasoned veteran of the club scene. They re-emerged in early 1967 and started recording demos. Impressed by their heavy-rocking, trippy and psychedelic version of The Supremes’ “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” the band landed a deal with the Atlantic subsidiary Atco. The label, however, insisted on a name change and the band settled on Vanilla Fudge. After all, they were a white group singing and playing with the soul of the brothers.
