PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! There is nothing quite like a sweet pastry to start your morning right. Whether you're grabbing a pain au choc in a rush to make the Tube for work, or enjoying a warm croissant on the weekend in an attempt to seem sophisticated, both French and cool - pastries always go down an absolute treat. The question is - which place does them best? Pain au raisin has always been my absolute favourite (no judgements please) so I sampled them from some of the country's most popular coffee chains, as well as from some of our favourite supermarket bakeries, in a bid to find the perfect pastry. Here are the results. Gail's These big boy pastries come with a hefty price tag Cost? £2.20 Taste? Gail's pain au raisin was aesthetic to look at, but it was a little crispy for my liking. The immediate downside of buying from a coffee shop is that staff normally choose the pastry for you, and you could end up with one that really isn't to your personal preferences. Of course, you can simply ask the member of staff if you are passionate about being given the pastry that's perfect for you, and at £2.20 a go - I'd say asking is certainly justified (I'm not tight I'm just Northern). This was definitely the biggest out of the pain au raisins I tested, so at least that is something, and that custardy stuff in the middle (I think it's called frangipane but I could be really wrong?) was pretty lovely. Score? 7/10 Caffè Nero Luckily looks aren't everything and Caffe Nero's pastry had some redeeming features Cost? £2.05 Taste? Ok, before we talk taste - we must first address the elephant in the room.

. But Caffè Nero's pain au raisin did rescue itself with a successful pastry: raisin ratio, as well as lots of custardy goodness. Score? 7/10 Aldi Aldi's pastry didn't look great but the taste transported me straight to Paris Cost? 49p Taste? On first look, Aldi's pain au raisin looked perfect for someone who either enjoyed their pastries significantly undercooked, or pretty burnt. Then again, I only had myself to blame, since I was given the freedom to choose the pastry myself from a large selection at the store's bakery. Luckily, it turned out I had chosen well anyway, and its sweet taste was just like you one would get in France. The only downside was the lack of custardy filling. Aldi's pastry wasn't exactly baked to perfection, but its taste for such a cheap price made up marks for sure. Score? 8/10 Lidl (Lidl's pastries don't come severed in half but I forgot to take a pic beforehand sincere apologies) Cost? 49p Taste? Lidl's pastry was definitely cooked much more evenly. It was a decent size, with a good amount of raisins and had lovely custard wrapped in between each swirl. It did lack a crispy interior which some pastry-lovers may seek, but I actually preferred it this way. The pastry itself wasn't super-duper sweet but overall it was a very enjoyable eat. Score? 8/10 Read More Related Articles
