Louise is the owner and founder of Scone drops and last weekend she kindly dropped off some deliciously looking sweet and savoury scones for me to try out.
The scones come in a rustic brown box tied up with string, and sealed with a sticker. Once I opened the box I was greeted with 4 miniature bags of sweet and savoury scones and hidden underneath were a few larger scones – plenty to meet anyones taste bud preferences.
I was hoping to tuck into the lot without sharing a even a crumb, but just so happens that the missus was in when they were delivered and definitely wanted in on the action. I drew the line at the kids though and told Zach that they had “dirty beer” in so he couldnt try them. He was not impressed in the slightest.
I switched things up a bit and added some clotted cream to some of the sweet scones but in truth they probably didn’t need it. I always feel like the scone you pick up in a cafe needs drowning in clotted cream and jam to prevent it from being dry and tasteless. But these just melt in your mouth and the flavour combinations are just something else. In the bags I didn’t know what they were but I found this quite exciting to try and guess. I done the sniff test first just so I didn’t put clotted cream on a cheese scone.
These are not your typical fruit or cheese scones by no means. These pack a punch with a variety of different flavours. Check the full list of flavours out below. But we had chocolate, plain, strawberry and white chocolate, toffee and chocolate, cheese and cheese and onion.
Flavours you can choose include;
- Plain scone
- Raisin & Sultanas
- Sweet Cherry
- Raspberry & Coconut
- Strawberry & White Chocolate
- Chocolate Chip
- Triple Chococlate
- Toffee & Chocolate
- Feta & Caramalised Onion
- Cheese & Onion
- Sun-dried Tomatoes & Parmesan
So me and the missus shared a few with a nice hot brew whilst guessing which was which flavour. Like a tastier version of russian roulette. I loved them all, very light and not to filling but my favourite was the chocolate and toffee.
I have never really been a savoury scone fan, as they always seem dry and stodgy, but these ones were just right. Louise has definitely got her bake and flavourings right and the size of them were perfect.
