The Sunday Scone Review - Waitrose, all butter sultana scones

Hello there,

Welcome back to Tea With Me and Friends - today we're back with a new feature for you....The Sunday Scone Review!

We love going out for a spot of afternoon tea, but sometimes it's just as nice to stay at home and enjoy a scone or two. We don't always fancy baking fresh scones (shocking I know!), sometimes we buy scones from our local supermarket (even more shocking!). So in the interest of finding the best supermarket scone, we've decided to bring you the Sunday Scone Review.

To kick off the series we've tried the all butter sultana scones from Waitrose....

The Sunday Scone Review - Waitrose all butter sultana scones

These scones cost £1.60 for four well sized scones, which are described as "hand crafted"......

A good size....but what about the texture?

I opted to dress my scone with Roddas clotted cream and some homemade blackberry jam....

How many stars will the Waitrose all butter sultana scones be rewarded?

The scone cut well and didn't crumble,and the cream spread on it well. It made a good base for the cream and jam. I was a little disappointed with the texture, which I found a tiny bit claggy.

Saying that, at 40p a scone I think they are good value and generally I enjoyed the scone. My deputy scone taster, Joe (aka my long suffering boyfriend) also tried one of these scones.....he is a jam first man....but we won't dwell too much on that. He enjoyed the flavour, but also thought it was a bit claggy.

We've debated the scone score long and hard and we've decided to award Waitrose a 3.75 stars out of a possible 5 for this scone.

If you have a recommendation for the Sunday Scone Review please get in touch!

Thank you for popping by today - pop back next Sunday to see which scone we're trying next!

Just for the record. ASDA is completely rubbish at scones, lol. x

Finding a good shop brought scone is so difficult when you're used to homemade. I will be ready these reviews with interest.
