Nope, not a typo. <---Well, yes, maybe a typo.........(see below)
Heard about these at our meeting tonight, so the leader and I popped into a grocery store on our walk home to check it out for ourselves.
Sure enough, we found 'em (at Gristedes, in NYC) -- Fiber One Hearty Wheat Multigrain English Muffins:
Fat - 1g
Carbs - 24mg <---here's the key, not '24g' but '24mg' or 0.024g
Protein - 5g
Fiber - 8g
Not sure how they make these things (although the ingredients list seems pretty darn normal). But man, zero points plus?!? Wow!
Naturally, I gave 'em a try tonight.
I do like the Thomas FreshStart English Muffins better. But for zero points plus, rather than 3, I'd say these Fiber One muffins are a great alternative.
Hope they'll soon be at a supermarket near you.
And hope my stomach doesn't explode tonight from whatever mystery ingredient makes a tasty little muffin with virtually no carbs!

As a couple friends here pointed out -- even though 24mg is listed both on the actual muffin package, and on the Fiber One website -- it looks like this may, indeed, be a typo -- since the %DV of carbs for these muffins is the same as muffins with a 24g carb content. Drat!
For 3 points plus, I'll be going back to my Thomas Light Multigrain FreshStart English muffins. Much tastier, I think.
