    As always, 4 mins in the AirFryer and they come out crispy, flaky and hot. Add jam or cheese to suit.

      Do you cut it in half before you put it in the airfryer? Also what temperature?

      • +1 vote

        Don't cut in half man

          these were surpisingly better than the last time i had it

        I do them at 100 degrees, and if they're a bit stay, a squirt of water from a bottle spray before putting in the air fryer.

        Yes cut in half because to cut them after makes a mess with all the crumbs. (After cutting put back together to heat)

    •  

      Alternatively, put in air fryer with ham and cheese for a few mins until the cheese is melted.

    •  

      Generally these are terrible, but you're on the right track, much much better as per your methods - I just overcook them in the oven with ham and cheese and they do the job.

      •  

        I enjoy the Coles ones frequently but rarely get the WW ones. Might be worth trying Coles ones and see if it's any better for you.

        •  

          I have a little artisan bakery round the corner I like to support. When they come from the back still warm, even hot sometimes, it's magical. Usually the supermarket bought are for the next day consumption.

            @blorx: I picked up a 3-pack from Woolworths yesterday and you're absolutely right, they're just awful. The Coles ones are significantly miles better but of course won't match a proper bakery one!

  • +15 votes

    This is a good deal, but last time I picked this up they weren't in the big cardboard tray, they were in a bag and were not exactly what I would call large, large I expected to be the 3 pack size, these seemed smaller than the ones in the 4 pack. Bit misleading

    •  

      Same, much smaller than expected and in bag. I ordered through click & collect, couldn’t be bothered returning. Wouldn’t have bought them if I went instore.

      The cardboard tray ones are bland

        Try eating the croissants instead of the tray.

      I've noticed that when things are half price they loose that little bit of effort and are short on the usual quality.

      "Large" as in "large" Domino's pizzas…

    •  

      IMO Coles 12 pack ‘large‘ $10 is better value than Woolies 10 pack ‘medium’ $4.50.

    Sorry but 25% butter is simply too low for a croissant. I say that particularly because croissants with low butter content should be turned in, not straight like these ones.

    •  

      Also, what's the point of listing as "butter croissant" if all croissants have butter? It's kind of redundant.

      • +2 votes

        It is not at all unreasonable to assume all croissants have butter.
        I was nearly fooled by these toscano croissants at woollies. "Warm, buttery and flaky! One bite of this French pastry will immediately transport you to a quaint French bakery.." When I read the ingredients I was immediately transported away from this culinary abomination. http://toscanoauthentic.com.au/products/french-croissants/

        • +2 votes

          I bought these once, enticed by the promise of experiencing a quaint French bakery. I ate the whole bag. Nothing. I was still sitting in my sh*tty kitchen, listening to the mice fight over the bags of bait under the fridge.

          Never again.

        A lot of croissants (and other common butter like products) are cheapened with oils such as palm oil, despite historically being made purely with butter as the fat

    • +1 vote

      Wrong. 25% is totally in the average for a butter croissant.

      •  

        50 : 50 or go home

      •  

        Again, I'm pointing this out specifically because they're ignoring tradition of bending low butter croissants inwards.

        • +2 votes

          That's also not accurate. The tradition – to the extent there is one – is to curve croissants when they're not made with butter. These are made with butter, so the tradition indicates that they should not be curved.

          And, as gonan says, a butter content of 25% isn't low. You can see that if you look at some recipes from top pastry chefs. Pierre Hermé's recipe contains 27% butter. Dominique Ansel's recipe contains 23% butter. Éric Kayser's recipe contains 22% butter. None of them shape their croissants as crescents.

          You may be confusing the overall butter percentage with the ratio of butter to flour. The latter will be a much higher figure: e.g. it's fairly usual to have the weight of butter being 40-60% of the weight of the flour. But a recipe like that will typically have an overall butter percentage of about 20-25%.

    The Costco ones are devine 👋

      The Costco croissants are easily the best mass produced croissants out of all the supermarkets. Not nearly as good as a French artisan bakery but chuck some in the freezer and defrost when you want to make a ham and Cheese croissant and you won't be disappointed.

      •  

        A few years ago, Costco made the best croissants. It was buttery and delicious and it was yellow on the inside. But in recent times, they have changed the recipe. The colour is no longer yellow, and a lot less buttery. Still much better than the Coles or Woolworths ones.

    At this price, these are perfect for making bread and butter pudding. https://www.bestrecipes.com.au/recipes/croissant-pudding-rec...

    I don't like these. They are not large.
    Coles have frozen croissants from France, they come up much better than these.

      In general the baked items from Woolies are terrible. Coles are so much better.

          Most people have weather outside of their house. How did you get it in yours?

        •  

          17 degrees in Melbourne today. Rarely goes below 13 in winter.

          Like Billy said, there's no such thing as bad weather. Just bad clothing.

      Still able to jog around outdoors too, which is also beneficial for your mental health during lockdowns

    I would rather pay full price at the local French bakery and just eat less often and NOT buy 10 at a time.
    Going against ozbargain instincts here but it is what it is.

        I think the Ozbargain motto is eat more for less.

          absolutely! But can certainly be Eat Well For Less.

            @Mr Frodo: That’s my philosophy nowadays. When I originally used to go on ozbargain, it used to be to live cheaply. It helped me save up for a house without a big drop in my lifestyle. Nowadays, it’s to live well without overpaying. My grocery bills have gone up but I eat well and I go out less.
