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.

I am a Naughty Blogger!

Hello everyone! Sorry for the delay in between posts again. Life is still crazy at the moment as I adjust to being a part time working mummy for the first time. I have a confession to make…

I am a naughty blogger! I have been invited to lots of events, courses and been sent lots of lovely things to review but I have not told you about any of it. I have the world’s biggest backlog of posts at the moment and I am determined to get through it before I go insane.

Therefore I have decided that I am going to get through this backlog over the coming weeks and months. Whenever you see the ‘I’m a naughty blogger’ badge above on a post, you will know that it is a post I should of written and published ages ago. I would like to apologise to everyone who has sent me something or asked me to go somewhere and I have not written about it yet. I hope you will forgive me. I have also got lots of recipes to share with you too so this blog will not turn into review post central. I am going to try to get the balance right.

Thank you for keeping on reading Jo’s Kitchen. Your support is greatly appreciated :-)
