Croisssant review [Aug. 20th, 2009|09:47 pm]

Hmph.

Normally I shop in Sainsbury's, where the croissants-in-a-can are made by "Sara Lee" at £1.49 for a can of four (240g).

Recently a new branch of Aldi has opened nearby, where the croissants-in-a-can are made by "Continental Choice" at £0.89 for a can of six (also 240g).

Now I discover that the Aldi croissants seem to be just croissant-shaped bits of bread, and not croissants at all -- they're a huge disappointment.

Don't buy "Continental Choice" croissants-in-a-can. Doesn't matter how cheap they are, it's still not worth it.

I'm going to have a cream-filled apple turnover now. From Sainsbury's.

Our Sainsburys don't stock the Sarah Lee ones any more. The Bloke complained to Sainsbury's and wrote to Sarah Lee. Still no Sarah Lee croissants.

Boo to Continental Croissants. The croissants-in-a-can from Sainsbury's are in 4s, but the boxes they come stacked in still say 6s. Did you get any chocolate croissants - they seem to be rarer in this format.

Just cos the doc didn't say you had to lose weight it doesn't mean that you should continue on an all-fat all-sugar no exercise basis! Did you make it to aqua today?

No chocolate croissants -- I didn't want to go completely overboard. And the lift from the car park to the gym in Wokingham is out of action at the moment, so I didn't go to aqua this morning -- I'm going to go to Farnborough tonight.
