Do you fancy a cheap fruit scone? Then these value ones at Tesco are only 3,3p each there is 10 in a pack the pack costs 33p. I notice Asda cheap sultana scones are the same price. I usually make my own scones, but have on occasion bought these also have eaten them at work when someone has bought them in.
These scones are a very good price I would not be able to make them at home so cheaply. Scones are in fact quick and easy to make at home and mine do actually taste better than these from Tesco.
These are round scones each one a good size. These scones are slightly nicer if warmed in the microwave for a minute or two not too long or they will go solid. Now to serve these scones cut them in half, the outer “crust” is dry the inner moist, you will notice the texture quite good a little crumbly but not too much so.
There are a few raisins in each piece of scone, not as many as in my home made ones but nearly enough (these are v cheap value scones after all). Now how do you eat your fruit scones spread with butter or some other fatty spread? I do not feel the need for anything else but some people do I know so jam, cream, anything you fancy.
So how do they taste? Very pleasant quite a neutral sweet taste the fruit is fairly plump adds that extra sweet ness to a bite. I would not be embarrassed to serve these to a friend with a cup of tea or coffee they obviously are not the finest or my home made ones but they are good enough. If I am shopping straight after work I am often in need of a sugar fix so I might buy these and take home to eat with that much needed cup of tea.
Calories there are 332kcal in 100g now I am not sure how much each one weighs but Tesco tells me in 40g there are 133kcal so I guess that 1 scone is about 40g why else would they use that figure .
For those people with allergies these scones do contain gluten, wheat and milk and may contain nuts and sesame seeds, I guess they are prepared in factory where these are used in other products .
