I love Warburtons and Kingsmill muffins but the other day I thought I would try a pack of these Basics muffins from Sainsburys because they are only 59p for 6. The muffins look thinner than the Warburtons ones and they don't have the yummy home made look. I cut them in half and toasted them like always and was disappointed that it just looked like toasted bread instead of a yummy muffin. Even when it's got butter spread on it I still think it tastes a bit like stale cake, it's too doughy and it's like the bread inside the muffin has been squashed down. They don't taste very fresh even though there was still a few days on the use by date and for me they are ... Read the complete review

When it comes to breakfast I'm actually a creature of habit really. I usually have a muffin, toasted covered in butter and jam. If not then it's some other type of yeast based delight and I always wake up starving and if I don't have some type of bread my brain don't work till I do lol! Ok I'm a bread addict! These I was really disappointed with when they turned up in my bread bin. Living at home means I'm not in charge of the shopping but my Mum always gets me my usual supply of favourite things to eat in. I would never ever buy economy muffins in a million years! Because I love muffins I think they're worth paying a bit more for and I wouldn't buy anything ... Read the complete review

I usually buy Warburtons muffins and crumpets but when they had ran out of the muffins in sainsbury's I decided to try their own brand. You get 6 muffins for about 60p which is a lot better than warburtons. When I ate these I could not tell that they weren't Warburtons. They are soft and squidgy, easy to cut, and toast brilliantly. I have found that Warburtons crumpets take quite a while to turn brown, I'm not sure whether that is my toaster or the muffins themselves, but these definitely toasted quicker (a bonus when your rushing around like a crazy person in the mornings). These muffins taste exactly the same as the ... Read the complete review

Despite my love of muffins I am quite generous and quite happy to share them around I could eat muffins till they are coming out of my ears! And I am also so fussy about how I have them. I think I have tried just about every supermarkets muffins, whether they be own brand or a make such as Mother's Pride. If I am being really honest most muffins are much of a muchness, but then again my muffin to butter(or marge/spread) ratio, just might be little different to everyone elses, so you could argue that I never get to taste the actual muffin. So with that in mind, it shouldn't matter if I pay over a quid for the more ... Read the complete review
