Co-op crumpets

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I have been trying to get coop crumpets for a few weeks and they have none. I asked staff why but they cant say.
Does anyone use a coop and buy their own crumpets?

Does anyone know why they have disappeared from the shelves. I have bought another brand but they are too thick to go in my toaster!

Have a look at the link below. It seems the Co-op have launched a star shaped crumpet for Christmas so maybe they have run down production of the normal crumpets in order to produce these.

Thanks for that Kathleen but oh my the price!!!! Ordinary crumpets are 69p for 6.
Whilst they look lovely, im not paying double for a star instead of a circle. What a huge xmas rip off.

But it explains whilst the normal ones are out of stock.

A rellie is a co-op manager. She says that Warburton crumpets are currently on offer ( down south ) at 65p. I can recommend them toasted with lashings of pure butter and strawberry jam . mmm.

I use a Dualit toaster and they fit ok.

Rollo, I have bought Warbutons crumpets only to get home and find they don't fit in my little basic 2 slice toaster.They are not on offer up here either and are more than the coops own.

I liked the look of the star crumpets but to nearly double the price is something else.When people realise that im sure they wont rush to buy them.

I have been to the rival supermarket "T" but their own brand are awful, have to say a no no.

If you gently just roll your Crumpets with rolling pin they will fit in toaster :-)

Sadly, a lot of Tesco own brand is not very good. Their pickled onions are awful.

The Co-op are generally pretty good on bakery.

Depending on the store the co-op marks fresh bakery down from between 5 and 7pm to closing by around 80%.
