Crumpets and scotch pancakes are a much loved favourite of mine. I dont mind about fancy brands, sometimes i find the cheaper brands are the best. Your always bound to find either a packet of crumpets in our cupboards and/or scotch pancakes. At the moment were partial to buying TESCO EXTRA VALUE CRUMPETS. They come in packets of 8 for around 30p. (i dont do the shopping, my mum does).
The packaging is pretty plain and it doesnt really stand out on the shelf, but the price does, so its all good. The packaging is clear see through so that you can see the crumpets inclosed inside. They do not look anything special and look quite pale and cheap. But appearence isnt everything. TESCO VALUE PANCAKES is written on the front in blue writing.
The crumpets when out the box are usually quite thick. The ones at present are about half an inch thick. They feel quite spongy and there is a strong smell of dough, and for some reason smells like pancakes. The crumpets are still looking pretty pale in colour but thats the appearence, the taste is a whole different experience.....
My crumpets always have to be covered in butter. I occasionally add jam to them, but to me these crumpets are best topped with lashings of butter...unhealthy...i know but at the moment i get away with eating fatty calorie ridden foods so why shouldnt i eat them hehe. Once i put the crumpet in my mouth, my tastebuds dance. These certainly do not taste like tesco extra value- not what i expected the first time i had one! These crumpets melted on my tongue, and with butter they left a delicious buttery, almost doughnut type taste on the tongue.
I would definitly reccomend them, they are cheap and cheerful :-)x
