“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Breads / Cakes „
I got these last week, as it had been a long time since I had eaten a baguette and just fancied one, and these looked like a good option, as I sometimes find baguettes very crusty and hard to eat so I could cook these to my own preference. The packet looks a little bit different now, as it's actually transparent, so you can see the baguettes through it, with a bit of information about them on the front. A pack of 2 baguettes (about 30cm in length each) costs 84p but when I got them they were on offer at two packs for £1.00 so I got 4 baguettes for that price. I was going to put one packet in the freezer, but the use by date was good for a couple of months so I have left one packet in the cupboard. The ingredients are listed as: Wheat Flour, Water, Yeast, Salt, Ascorbic Acid. It also says that per 100g (I can't find the weight of each baguette though) there is 2.3g of fat and 181 calories, which isn't too bad. To cook these, it said to put in the oven for about 10 minutes on 180-200 degrees, I did this and the top of the baguette went nice and crispy and the centre was lovely and soft, and it filed the kitchen with the smell of baking bread. They tasted pretty good too, with just a bit of butter on, and they would have been great for home made garlic bread or with some nice soup. They were a little bit bland, as all white bread is, but still had a nice texture and were very easy to cook. I would definitely recommend these, as they have such a long shelf life, they were easy to cook, cheap and tasted pretty good. You can also make them as crusty as you prefer by shortening or extending the cooking time.
