An Analysis of Finest compared to Regular

4 stars

Abstract: If you have a quid to spare, consider buying these over the regular ones. As written by a relative of the user: Out of bored--I mean, curiosity, I bought 1 pack of 8 regular croissants and a pack of 4 Finest ones. I then weighed both products sans packaging, randomly (I mean, they all looked uniformly squished) selected two of each and baked them for the recommended time. I wasn't about to scarf down four croissants as an afternoon snack, so I asked the account owner to share his opinion--and guilt--with me afterwards. I considered testing samples of non-baked croissants for control, but couldn't justify consuming the extra calories without the pleasure of crunchy buttery flakes. -The Finest range is about 30% more expensive than the regular croissant by weight (at approx. 260g vs 340g). That means you pay roughly £1.70 extra per kg as of May 2020. -These are about 50% larger than the regular ones. -80% flakier and tastier...ish. Subjectively. Overall, while not the best croissant around, it's alright for the pricetag and convenience. (Also, I hope they freeze well.)

I found these okay but a bit dry.

These are okay to eat, but would highly recommend heating them in the oven first...180c (fan) for 5 minutes before eating. I purchased these to have warm with my morning coffee. These are not the same as the previous Tesco finest croissants in the blue package which I did enjoy. These ones are smaller, the texture is dryer when you pull them apart to eat they just come apart, they don’t stretch like the other ones used to. I think they have less butter in the making of these, Hence why they are dryer and not as moist and don’t have that same buttery taste.

Tesco sent me these as a substitute to what I had ordered online-ugh they were doughy and there wasn't much flavour either. Disappointed to say the least especially as they are from Tesco's 'Finest' range!

very disappointing. finest? tesco ones used to be

2 stars

very disappointing. finest? tesco ones used to be much better.

Nasty

2 stars

Unpleasant taste, claggy texture. I don't know what butter they use to make these, but I wouldn't want to spread it on my bread. These 'Finest' croissants taste much the same as the standard ones (which are also nasty), so you're better off buying those, they taste as bad, but you get twice as many for your money.

Don't bother

Croissant shaped, but taste nothing like a croissant. It's just a slightly sweet flaky bread

Very doughy
