Review of "McVities Mini Strawberry Croissants"
Back after a 6 month break - not quite sure how it was that long, but hoping to stay now I have more time again.
I spotted this product in the supermarket about a year ago and thought it would make a good snack for my children, and worth trying as they are part of the McVities range and i have never been disappointed before.The pack contains 7 mini croissants that can be served hot or cold. As an added bonus, sometimes there has been 8 in the packet. My children have had them both ways and like them equally. I prefer them heated up myself. Gas mark 2.5 for 5 minutes.
They are a small croissant, with a generous amount of jam filling. The filling is not really like strawberry jam. It is a smoother blend more like strawberry puree, and is really sweet.The croissant itself is not a true croissant. You don't get the 'puffiness' that you get from a true choux pastry, and they don't really get the crisper outside. They remain soft.
They are a reasonably healthy choice at 55 calories per croissant. They also have 1g of protein, 7.6g of carbohydrates, and 2.2g of fat.I find the packet to be quite small and resilient enough to hide a pack of these in my bag and produce when my children are getting restless, and they have never been disappointed. I put the opened pack inside a sealable sandwich bag and that keeps them reasonably fresh unlike some products in the biscuit ranges.
My only complaint is there is 7 in the pack and i have 2 children, so that means i have to eat one to stop them arguing about the last one in the pack.If my children were old enough to have packed lunches i would also consider putting one of thes in as a sweet treat.
A good buy from a trustworthy brand.
