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.

Toast them more than once - and you get a lovely crisp crunch. Add butter (and marmite) and it's heaven on a plate. I agree with a previous poster - fits the toaster perfectly - and you get about 50% more crumpet than with round ones. No idea why no one else has thought of them... Only problem is that they are so popular, Morrison's are frequently sold out. So when I find them, I bulk buy and freeze!
