Review of Sainsbury’s crumpets

I really enjoying eating crumpets they are simple quick easy snack or make a nice breakfast or lunch. I can’t remember the last time I had crumpets. So many are not suitable for dairy free me.
My bread for lunch had gone mouldy so I made a quick dash to a Sainsbury’s local and these crumpets caught my attention. I didn’t expect to be able to have them. On checking the ingredients list the only allergen highlighted was wheat. They were also labelled as being suitable for vegans. So that was my lunch sorted. I could have my peanut butter after all.
I popped two crumpets into the toaster as instructed. They toasted well. They came it with a crispy bottom and a slightly crispy top.
I placed my peanut butter on the top it melted slightly and oozed through some of the holes. I couldn’t wait to dive in. On biting into the crumpet it was slightly crunchy to the top followed by a light fluffy yet slightly doughy centre. This was finished by a nice crunchy bottom. As for the flavour it is difficult to describe it was like eating a toasted white loaf of bread with a slightly more substantial texture.
I really enjoyed these crumpets in terms of their differing texture. I liked their crunchieness which was superior to other crumpets that I have tried. The flavour was as I expected. So would I recommend these crumpets to anyone who follows a dairy free or vegan diet, yes definitely. So thank you Sainsbury’s for producing a nice simple savoury treat that I can enjoy at anytime of day.

      It’s such a simple food but highly versatile and a quick and easy snack. Sadly, not easy to have if you’re on a restricted diet.

    Anything with peanut butter on top gets a thumbs up from me. Crumpets are so delightfully British too, great combo!

        It’s so good isn’t it? The big question is though, crunchy or smooth?

        • January 26, 2016 / 9:33 pm

          The honest answer is I have both in the cupboard and I fluctuate between the two. I couldn’t choose ?.

            It is a tough decision! Almond butter is really good too, definitely worth a try.

            Oh I recently discovered this as well. I love it in a smoothie.

    We used to eat crumpets and peanut butter during our student days; it’s such an addictive and tasty snack! 🙂

    That reminds me — I need to see if I can still get crumpets here in Kentucky. 🙂

      Hi, thanks for reading my post. I hope you can find some crumpets.

    Thanks for that. Crumpets are great. I’ve also found that my homemade sourdough bread, when toasted, is very similar to crumpets. Ah…the calories……..

      Oh homemade toasted sour dough bread sounds amazing. The calories are worth it though ?.

    I’ve never seen crumpets where I grocery shop in the USA…I’ll check Amazon and see if it’s possible to order them online…because I’m intrigued 🙂
