Lakeland Bake – Just Square Crumpets (Morrison’s)



Crumpets, as I’m sure you are aware, can having many toppings, from plain butter, through to jams/preserves and even cheese and marmite. One thing that usually remains constant though is the shape – they are generally round. When I saw these I was intrigued by the square shape, and as I can’t resist a novelty thought I would give them a purchase.
I was surprised that the website from the manufacturer doesn’t seem to mention any reasons or any advantages for the shape. I found one though, they are so much easier to get out of the toaster (I have a toaster designed to toast bagels and crumpets and even so I find crumpets difficult to remove as they roll and you can’t grab a corner).
The crumpets themselves are lovely and of a very good quality. They have a good strong flavour and a lovely fluffy texture, and they are just as tasty with a little butter as they are with any fancy topping. A unique and clever product that I thoroughly enjoyed!

God, I love crumpets! I like a lot of butter on mine so that it fills up the little grooves and bursts out when you bite into them. Can you tell I am hungry? Good post

Just crumpets are the best I have ever tasted.
