These muffins from Sainsburys are completely fabulous. I have to say I am not a big fan of muffins, but these have won me over. They are quite mini (the clue is in the title on the packet), but this is all to the good in my opinion as I cannot manage to get through a whole big muffin. Size-wise they are about 4.5 cm high and 6cm in diameter at their widest point. A few bites and their gone.
The cake itself is lovely and moist, whereas some muffins can be quite dry. They peel out of the wrapper very easily. There are more than enough white chocolate chunks to give you at least two in every bite and there is a nice crunch to the chocolate. The raspberry boasted about in the title is actually raspberry flavoured pieces, which are quite like small lumps of jelly and remind me of the bits you get in fruit flakes. The muffin is none the worse for this however as it gives a nice sweet tang to the cake.
There are eight muffins in a packet, which is enough, although it is very tempting, as they are so small, to have more than one at time, and therefore the packet doesn't last so long.
They are freezable, and vegetarian, and there is 119 calories in each cake. Sell-by date is usually about a week from purchase date, but they do need to be kept in an airtight container once you've opened the packet.
My favourite thing is to have these with a nice dollop of clotted cream smeared on top. Not good for the diet though!
