Anyone growing up in Scotland is aware of the name Tunnocks. They have been around since 1890 and still make the same delicious cakes and biscuits that they always have. I daresay the ingredients have changed over the years but somehow they taste exactly the same as they did when I was young. While at primary school we were taken on a school trip to the Tunnock's Factory to see how cakes and biscuits were made...yes those were the days when school trips finished with a treat or two. We were all given a huge bag of biscuits when we left and mine was practically filled with Tea Cakes, this began my lifelong love of these cakes/biscuits. That is ... Read the complete review

Tunnock's Tea Cakes are a force to be reckoned with. Retained as being one of life's little luxuries, I've often found that this cake is ideal for Sunday evenings, surrounded by the papers and a big pot of tea at the ready. They are of course, "Tea Cakes," by name although with coffee they are also plainly acceptable to wash down with. "Munch Mallows", "Go Ahead" Mallows and supermarket brands - I've tried them all including similar copies with an empire biscuit base bought from Greggs the bakers not so long ago, trying to copy the style of the old fashioned and sensibly British, Tunnock's Tea Cakes. Just like Irn Bru, Tunnock's ... Read the complete review

What could be more traditional for tea than a Tunnock's Tea Cake! (especially if you are either from Scotland or part of the wider Scottish diaspora - which I am though about four generations down the line). Certainly, they have been a teatime favourite of mine since boyhood. There are alternatives, mostly cheaper and some with jam in them but- apart from M&S's- I don't think they come close for quality and flavour. And where I live the nearest M&S is a £5 bus ride away. The tea cakes come in a box of six resplendent in the Tunnock's colours of deep yellow and red with red lettering and complete with a depiction of a lion rampant holding a Tunnock's ...

Any born and bred Scot will have fond memories of these teacakes as it takes you back to the treats your Grandparents would have in the house when you were young. Tunnock's are a family business located in Uddingston, Scotland since 1890 and they produce a variety of cakes and biscuits. These teacakes come in a yellow traditional-looking box of 6 priced at around £1.15. Each one is individually foil wrapped in silver foil with red detailing. The Tunnock's Teacake is flat at the bottom and rounded at the top. The base of the teacake is made up of a crumbly biscuit which is not as dense as shortbread but is more moist than digestives. On top of the digestive is ... Read the complete review

Thomas Tunnock formed his family business in 1890, when he bought a baker's shop in Uddingston. They produce quite a small range of items compared to most producers of confectionery, but their products are so popular, they are exported all over the world. Tunnocks Tea Cakes are my favourite and my kids too, but my husband prefers the wafers. I prefer to buy my tea cakes in a pack of 10, then we can all have more than one. They come in yellow, cardboard packaging with a clear panel on top. Inside you can see that they are individually wrapped in red and silver foil. When I unwrap a tea cake, I can't wait to bite into it. These aren't really made for ... Read the complete review
