I don't tend to eat breakfast, but when I do I often have a couple of crumpets. I like the Warburtons crumpets, and purchased a pack yesterday. I purchased mine from Sainsburys, where I was surprised to see that these branded crumpets (with an asterisk stating that these are the number 1 crumpet brand according to a 2012 survey) were a few pence cheaper than Sainsburys Taste the Difference ones. The Sainsbury's ones were 83p and the Warburtons were 80p, for 6 crumpets.
I purchased a pack of 6 crumpets, although other size packs are available. They come in a cardboard sleeve, wrapped in plastic. The plastic is difficult to re-wrap around the crumpets, so I store them in an air-tight container once opened.
The card is orange and depicts a large Warburtons logo on one side, along with a description of the crumpets. They are called 'thick and fluffy' and they certainly are. They are thicker than other crumpets, at around 3/4 of an inch, but are thin enough to fit perfectly in the toaster. At 3.5in in diameter, two crumpets are enough to satisfy me for a while, which is great as they contain 98 calories, 1.1g of sugar, 0.4g of fat and 0.81g of salt in each crumpet. The crumpets have plenty of holes through them, so are fluffy and not rubbery like some.
I like to toast mine and eat them smothered with butter, and often a naughty little sprinkle of sugar. They can be a little dry eaten alone, so a drink of milk is a great accompaniment. The taste can be a bit doughy if eaten alone, but the suggestion on the packaging is to eat with butter, jam, cheese or scrambled egg.
These crumpets are vegetarian society approved, and the allergy advice states that they contain wheat gluten and are produced in a bakery that uses milk, sesame seeds, soya and egg. The ingredients are wheat flour, water, yeast, raising agents E450, E500, salt, sugar and preservative calcium propionate. The crumpets can be frozen on the day of purchase.
Healthy, tasty crumpets! 5*
