Product Review: Jus Rol Croissants, Pain Au Chocolat and Garlic Bread

I was recently contacted by Jus-Rol to see if I would like to try a selection of their products. I always use their pastry whenever I make pies, tarts and so on as I am really bad at pastry. It is my one major weakness in the kitchen!! Therefore, I decided to try other products within their range. I decided on the Pain Au Chocolat, Croissants and Garlic Pizza Bread.


I tried the Pain au Chocolat and croissants one morning when a friend came over. You have to get the dough out of the tin and roll the croissants and Pain Au Chocolat yourself. This was very easy and only took a couple of minutes before putting them in a pre-heated oven. I slightly overcooked them as I was chatting to my friend but they were still very flaky, buttery (not sure if this is a word!) and delicious! I would definitely cook them if I had people staying over and needed to cook them something delicious as the smell of them cooking would wake them up happy I am sure.
I tried the garlic pizza bread a few nights later with Stuart. We were impressed with the quality of bread. It tasted nearly like homemade pizza however we were very disappointed by the lack of garlic butter that actually stayed on the bread. Most of it ended up on the baking tray unfortunately and the bread ended up being quite dry. It was very easy to cook and I am sure I would use it again if a way could be found to keep the garlic butter on the bread. Could they change the shape perhaps or create a crust on the bread to help keep the butter in? Stuart suggested pricking the bread with a fork so there are holes there already which the butter can seep through.
What do you think of a Jus-Rol products?
Disclosure: I was sent some vouchers to try the products. All opinions are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.
