Britannia Treat Croissant Cocoa Creme Roll Review – Delicious Snacking
Britannia Treat Croissant has a delicious cocoa creme stuffing. But how is the texture of this treat?
Best enjoyed with some coffee and a gorgeous view, croissants are a crescent shaped pastry made using copious amounts of butter. They are mostly flakey, crisp and multiple layered.
We picked a packaged croissant by Britannia Treat to see if it comes close to a freshly baked one. Our Britannia Treat Croissant Cocoa Creme Roll review is based on our taste test where we gauged it on parameters like flavor and texture.
Contrary to what many believe, Croissants aren’t French pastries. They are of Austrian origin and were originally called Kipfel.
Britannia Treat Croissant Cocoa Creme Roll – Everything You Need To Know
Here is all that you need to know about the Britannia Treat Croissant Cocoa Creme Roll.
The Britannia Treat Croissant comes packed in a white and purple pack which is not resealable. The croissant is placed directly in the wrapper, there is no tray.
2. Main Ingredients
The main ingredients used are – Refined wheat flour (maida), Sugar, Margarine, Interesterified vegetable fat & palm oil, Liquid glucose, Yeast, Vital gluten, Milk solids, Cocoa solids (1%), Bakery improver, Anticaking agent, Flour treatment agent, and antioxidant, Humectant, Emulsifiers, Iodised salt and Preservative.
Contains added flavors.
The dominant flavor should be of a buttery pastry and lush chocolate stuffing. We wanted to check the pastry to chocolate creme ratio, the sweetness levels and the individual flavor of the bread/pastry and chocolate creme.
The chocolate is filled in the centre most layer from end to end. At no point do we feel that we are just biting into bread. The ratio of chocolate to croissant pastry is perfect which enhances the overall experience. The chocolate filling is creamy and tasty. It’s a thick cream and not flowy or like a bar of melted chocolate.
We love the balanced sweetness levels of this treat by Britannia.
Originally, a croissant is very flaky and buttery with cable-like layers. Not that we were expecting a croissant for 15 Rupees that comes at par with the one from a French boulangerie! But we were looking for something that has a flakey, buttery texture.
The Britannia Treat Croissant is more bready than flakey or buttery. Although this is soft and airy, and the layers are on point, this wasn’t really flakey.
5. Freshness & Aftertaste
Does the bread taste stale or does the fat used lend a rancid smell/taste? Thankfully that wasn’t the case here. The product tastes fresh and has no foul aftertaste.
A single pack containing a single croissant is priced at Rs 15/-.
7. Shelf Life
The product has a shelf life of 4 months.
