“ Brand: Mothers Pride / Type: Cake „
These are the only brand of crumpets that they sell in Cooltrader now, the packet I got was red but it's the same product as Dooyoo have got for their picture.
You get 8 crumpets for 69p and they are wicked crumpets that are proper tasty and are loads better than Kingsmill crumpets, but not as good as Warburtons.
The crumpets are lovely and soft, they've got a doughy texture and a wicked fresh flavour. I toasted mine and put butter on them and when the butter soaked into the crumpet they were absolutely delish! The crumpets go nice and crunchy on the top and bottom but the middle stays soft and chewy.
I think these are one of the best crumpets around and they're one of the cheapest! They taste so fresh and keep good as well, ours didn't last very long for for the 2 days we'd got them they didn't go stale or anything even when my dad left the wrapper wide open one night.
I had 2 with chocolate spread on the other night and that was wicked. Where the chocolate was touching the hot crumpet it melted into the little holes but I had spread it that thick that it stayed nice and cool and yummy at the top. My mouths watering now! lol
My mum has poached eggs on top of her crumpets and she did me one last week and it was yummy. The soft yolk melted into the crumpet and I'd never have thought it could taste so good, I've had it before but it was on a cheapo Asda crumpet and it just wasn't the same because the crumpet was naff and hard.
Give Mothers Pride crumpets ago because even though their bread is manky I reckon they've found their talents with crumpets!
One of my friends recently mentioned to me that she had had crumpets for her breakfast that morning and I ended up craving for some myself. I'm not much of a breakfast person so I dont generally buy anything other than bread or a box of cereal. I used to have crumpets when I was little but then I remember them as pikelets as I am from down south.
Anyway I went to Morrisons and headed for the bread aisle and found just what I was looking for. I ended up buying 2 packets of 8 Mothers Pride crumpets they were on offer buy two packets for a £1.00. I knew I wouldn't be able to eat 16 crumpets by the sell by date but the great thing is they can be frozen. So one packet went in the freezer and the other packet was opened straight away.
I popped two crumpets in the toaster for a couple of minutes, they are a little tricky to get back out again as they are quite small and dont quite reach the top. I cover my crumpets with loads of butter and some jam and eat them while they are still hot. The only problem I have with them is that I find they go cold quick, so there I am trying to eat two crumpets in record breaking time and they dont exactly go down with ease. I also find eaten them whilst I am on my own is a good idea as I find the butter sneaks out and ends up running down your chin and hands and if your unlucky also down your front. Not an attractive look.
