Let's be honest, commercial scones are pretty poor at best (Try the over priced Sainsbury's Taste the difference ones at about £1.30-odd for four (a while back, a purchase I have not repeated!) - they are not a LOT better, even at that ridiculous price). Unfortunately scones just do not keep well, so unless you get them fresh baked or make them, they tend to be dry, but these cheap ones are another level of dryness altogether, and not the best example of supermarket bargain basement ranges at all :-(

On their own? It would be like eating the flour they are made of! Unless you float them in a liquid, they are going to be dry whatever you put on them :-(

The best commercial scone-type purchase of them all - on the rare occasions you can get them, Hevva Buns (a spiced fruited scone) from Somerfield - I can't remember the last time they had any in stock in my local store though, as they fly of the shelves :-( I have even tried to make them as nice, and can't, despite a lot of research on ingredients! They actually are moist,don't know how they do it, because they keep well too! Expensive at 89p to £1.19-plus depending if any offers, (usually dearer than cheap!) but leaves all others standing.

I must have been spoiled by my mother, as she made scones about twice a week, and I suppose I only really like them before they go stale, I am not so keen a baker, so it is a rare thing for me to bother, but every now and again a purchase of shop bought ones drives me to it, and it reminds me that scones are perhaps the easiest of all things to bake, and one of the cheapest too!

they are gross. I hate cheap scones, so dry. This is the price (because they are rubbish). So not a deal

well i enjoyed them maybe cause i dont eat scones usually so cant compare them to the more expensive ones but if this helps one person save some pennys im happy

yeh but your not saving much when they taste awful?! I would rather pay a few pennies more and get something nice

we all have different tastes i quite like them and im not the only one as im sure your not the only one who hates them

Slap a bit of marg on and will be OK for the ministers visit. At 35p for for a plate full, not all bad. Well except the taste.
