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.
