There are 4 types of muffins listed in the original question. Yet the question states the bakery only sells three.

As mentioned i presumed that typing cranberry could be typing error. I too made a mistake of typing blackberry for blueberry.

I think we should open a muffin shop. We'd have a better selection than the shop listed in the question! ha ha ha

Well, only one answer to this silly problem:
Brand A: 6 @ .65 = 3.90
Brand B: 1 @ .70 = 0.70
Brand C: 3 @ .75 = 2.25
