Soreen Snack Pack
Advantages: tasty, pre-buttered
Disadvantages: quite expensive when full price
I have always loved Soreen malt loaf, my parents often used to buy it to eat for a snack in the afternoon. It would always be thickly sliced and spread with butter. Every now and again I buy malt loaf too, but on a recent trip to Tesco in the reduced section I spotted a Soreen malt loaf snack pack which I thought would provide a nice snack at work mid-morning when the huger normally kicks in.
The Soreen malt loaf snack pack contains two slices of malt loaf which is pre-buttered. The usual cost per snack pack is £0.99 but I managed to snap mine up at the bargain price of just £0.10!! I do not think that I would buy this at the full price as you can actually buy a full loaf for a similar price.
The packet is made of foil to allow the malt loaf to stay nice and fresh. It is easy to open just buy either pulling the ends open or tearing the jaggered edges. Inside the packet the two slices are sandwiched together with the butter sides in the middle to stop them sticking to the sides of the packet.
There are a couple of serving suggestions on the packet. Either to put cheese on the malt loaf for a savoury twist or for a sticky snack to top with jam or honey. Personally I like it just the way it is.

I really love this malt loaf it is moist, fruity and has a lovely malty flavour. The snack pack is a great idea and provided me with a lovely treat at work but did not leave me feeling too full. If I see this product again for a bargain price I will certainly purchase it again.
