Review: New Warburtons Giant Crumpets

Warburtons have released a giant version of the classic crumpet. The Giant Crumpets are almost twice the size of regular crumpets but still have the same thick and fluffy texture. 

Each pack contains two large crumpets which are easily double the size of our usual crumpets - almost as big as the plate. I must admit I was expecting them to be quite thin, to make up for the larger size, but they're just as thick as regular crumpets. Even though they're twice the size, these crumpets still fit easily into a toaster. 

Once toasted, the flavour is really delicious, with a lovely soft texture with crunchy edges. A giant crumpet deserves a special topping and for me it could only be bananas and Nutella! Of course this was strictly a one-off treat (ahem) but there are lots of other ideas for how to enjoy these giant crumpets. 

Because the crumpets are so big they can be used as a quick and easy meal option. Warburtons sent me a few gorgeous ideas for their giant crumpets such as chicken breast & avocado or a sweet summer berries with marscaone. I especially liked their savoury idea (pictured above) that combines tomatoes, mushrooms and cheese. It's basically a crumpet pizza! I'll be making this one for sure.

    1. They're quite unique, kind of soft but springy at the same time. I hope you get to try them one day!

  3. I've always been a bit indifferent to crumpets.. Not very British of me, I know! lol. I'm thinking I need to get some of these giant ones and smother them in Nutella - Nutella does make everything amazing after all! :D x

    1. I do through phases of buying them and then not having any for ages. I managed to scoff more than my fair share of these crumpets though!

      Nutella rules!!

  4. My husband loves crumpets and will surely think these are fabulous.

    On a side note, I've just been on a week cruise and this was the ONLY website that would load, so i have now had a thorough read of your blog and i love it. Thank you for providing me some reading material :D

    1. Thanks so much for the lovely words about my blog LJ. I hope you had a wonderful cruise and I'm just glad that having only my blog to read didn't make you want to hit an iceberg!

      I'm sure your husband will enjoy the crumpets - let me know what he thinks! :D

  5. Toasted under the grill (or broiler to Americans) with butter and cheese, add chutney. Fantastic in autumn and winter. Just discovered your blog, very interesting, although I am trying to steer away from the sweet treats.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
