Advantages: Light and crispy, not too stodgy
Disadvantages: Not as healthy when you drench them in butter
Crumpets are something that normally I don't buy as I find them rather bland and rubbery but I spotted these Warburtons crumpets at my local Cooperative priced at 49p for six which I thoght was cheap considering that Warburtons are a premium brand.
The Crumpets contain Wheat Flour,Water, Yeast, Salt ,Sugar and also Raising Agents and preservative. The first thing that I noticed about these crumpets is their thickness, they seemed thicker than other ones I have tried, they just about fitted in my toaster.
Warburtons Crumpets don't take long to toast which again is something that in the past I have noticed with other brands, maybe it is because they are thicker but they only need a couple of minutes in the toaster. The crumpets come out of the toaster lovely and soft with a crispy top and are just crying out for a spread of butter on them - they are like a sponge, the butter just melts into them, I suppose some may think it wrong to add anything to the crumpet other than butter, it is a matter of personal taste what you put on them.
When you bite into one of these crumpets you get a slight crunch which then leads into the butter soaked , soft centre. They are surprisingly light considering they are a bread product, the packet says "less than 1% fat" which surprised me but then underneath it reads: "before butter and toppings are added" , so if you wanted to make these a healthy option then you would have to do without the dollop of butter!, they might go well with a low-fat cream cheese maybe?
I think these crumpets deserve 5 stars, they don't cost to much and are perfect for breakfast with a cup of tea.
Summary: five stars
