“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Cakes „
Being that I now have got myself a little part-time job, after work I pop to a nearby Sainsburys and I can often be seen in there in the evenings pottering around and as always having a look at that nights reduced bargains ( theres nothing quite like a bargain to make you enjoy it more!). Well the family have had their fill of mini doughnuts and yum yums, so when I saw these Cornish Clotted Cream Scones I thought they would make a nice change. Coming in a pack of 4 you can see them through the clear wrapping, now you can choose some that are quite light looking or some that are done that little bit more, which is what I went for. There might only be 4 in a pack but these are quite substantial in size, standing head and shoulders above the other scones that are on sale. Now I used to live in Devon many years ago and certainly used to enjoy the clotted cream that was on sale in the next county Cornwall, so these sounded very enticing. On opening the clear wrapper there is a cardboard sleeve that gives you all the information that you need to know. The clotted cream that is used is from the Trewithen Dairy at Greymare Farm in Lostwithiel, Cornwall. This farm has been run by the Clarke family since 1977 and has rapidly gone on to produce some wonderful creams, butter and yoghurts. When taking one of these scones out of the packet you will notice that they look like they have already been sliced in half as in the middle they slightly reduce in size. On slicing it in half you will see just how lovely these scones are and of course they smell delicious. They have a very slight crumbly texture and look a yellow colour inside. Not just having Cornish clotted cream in them they also have Cornish Buttermilk and Cornish Butter, making them a very Cornish scone indeed. They taste delicious and as the pack say's you can "Taste the Difference" having a very creamy taste these are definitely one of the better scones on the market, now these really should have the full works of jam and clotted cream on to give them their Royal filling, but unfortunately I didn't have either in the house at the time of preparing these so a nice pat of butter had to do instead!. YUMMY!!! Not being for anyone on a diet as once you add the full works they are sky high in calories, but definitely worth every calorie to be had!. Each scone ( glad I don't have to say "Scone" as I never know which way is the right way!!)contains; ~~~Calories 269~~~ ~~~Fat 12.7g~~~ ~~~Sat fat 8.3g~~~ ~~~Total sugar 7.1g~~~ ~~~Salt 0.84g~~~ Weightwatchers points are 6 (sorry!) So next time there is a clear blue sky get down to Sainsburys and treat yourself to these lovely Cornish Clotted Cream Scones, but don't forget the jam and cream to make it a real treat! To buy a pack of 4 costs £1.39, but I got mine for 20p as they had that days date and they still tasted great. I also got a pack for the freezer which froze and defrosted really good as well. I give these 5 Dooyoo stars!
Both me and my mate who I have been holidaying with love a nice scone. We have been up Devon way (not quite Cornwall yet lol), indulging in such delicacies and decided whilst we were in a Sainsbury's store stocking up for food to eat in the caravan that we would give these scones a try and at £1.39 for 4 scones we were impressed by the price and couldn't wait to get our greedy gobs round them! The Packaging: The 4 scones come in a see-through packet that is easy to tear open and to the underside of that there is a blue and purple coloured light cardboard sleeve/tray and on the sides of that I'm told what they are 'Sainsbury's Taste The Difference Cornish Clotted Cream Scones' and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there. Other information on the sleeve includes a full nutritional breakdown, ingredients and allergy advice is given, storage details are listed and contact details for Sainsbury's are given. The Scones: Round in shape these are actually rather thick but easy to cut through as they are not too flaky and mess at all. To the outside of these they are golden and smooth and have a lovely baked appearance, the inside is whitish and soft to bite into. These are plain scones meaning they have no fruit in them at all. However they are simply melt in the mouth tasty! Made from Cows milk, flour, Cornish butter milk and Cornish butter (amongst a few other ingredients of course) they really are very Moorish! Add to them fillings of your choice (you can't beat a bit of strawberry jam and if feeling very naughty a bit of cream!) they really are a high quality, unmessy and a digestible scone! Not too sweet, but naturally so, at 269 calories a scone they may not be good for your hips but are indeed a good soul food! Love these and they really are almost as good as real Cornish one's in me and my mates opinion as they really do have a beautiful creaminess to them!
