Crawfords Custard Creams are another of my favourites, along with their Bourbons, Garibaldi and Nice. Crawfords have been in the Biscuit making business for over 200 years and they certainly know how to do it. Their biscuits have always been a frim favourite in our house and I remember them from my childhood. Then biscuits were more of a luxury and definitely not an every day thing, well in our house anyway. They have a wonderfully rich creamy filling with a lovely vanilla flavour sandwiched between 2 crunchy biscuits. A perfect balance, not too sweet and the biscuit isn't too hard either. I always mention the sweetness as some can be too sweet, which overpowers the flavour and all you can taste it the sugar. I have tried others, but these are still my brand of choice. Great on their own or with a cuppa.
This product from brand Crawford's contains 'Custard Creams' biscuits, i.e. sandwich biscuits with a 'vanilla' cream filling. The biscuits are crispy and crunchy, with adequate thickness. The flavour of the filling is highly reminiscent of vanilla custard. It is not overly sweet, complementing the biscuits very well. The biscuits are good on their own and are made even better when paired with a cup of a hot tea or 'cappuccino'. They can be easily shared with family and friends. The product lives up to its name, and it is, overall, worth the purchase.
I've always heard that these cookies are amazing and have been wanting to try them out for quite a while. Well, they're not something woah, but really nice. The cookie is crunchy, but not too much and the cream is lightly vanilla-y, not fake tasting and not very fatty either. Overall, it's a good cookie, especially with a cup of tea.
These lovely biscuits taste fabulous. I've eaten these biscuits since I was a little girl, going on holiday. These biscuits remind me of those holidays. The lovely vanilla taste, the crunchy biscuits. I would split them in two, one biscuit I eat normally and of the other side I would first lick the cream and then eat the biscuit, can't wait to get my new order of these biscuits.
Crawfords Custard Creams is a timeless classic when it comes to biscuits. The creamy custard filling between two crumbly shortbread biscuits is to die for. It goes perfect with afternoon tea. Just dunk it in your tea, enjoy and you will be hooked. I get pleasant flashbacks of my childhood every time I relish them. Purchasing multiple packs is a MUST!
Custard Creams. Crawford's are the best. They have a really creamy centre and crisp cookie. They actually taste like custard. I've tried a lot of other brands. The custard taste is not as creamy as the Crawford's. I have seen Orange creams in the past. I'm not sure if they still make them or if they were a temporary item. I'd love to see them again.
Beautiful biscuits. The filling is deliciously creamy and the biscuits are lovely with the the crunch and crumble that they are known for. Perfect for an afternoon snack with a nice, warm cup of tea, or to pack in children's, or your own lunches. I recommend these Custard Creams, as they are wonderful for the whole family!
Tastes just like home! Perfect custard creams. Crunchy and lovely with a cup of tea. The custard creams came well packaged. I was worried they may be broken up on arrival, but all intact and perfectly formed as they should be! I have ordered biscuits before from the internet and want to be impressed, however, can totally see the care and thought that goes into the packaging at the British Corner Shop. Thank you!!
Custard Creams are a British classic and a staple to any afternoon tea. These biscuits are crunchy, with a delicious vanilla flavour, and the filling is a beautiful creamy custard dream! These biscuits remind me of being a young child and sneaking off into the kitchen to grab a couple of these from the biscuit tin without anyone knowing! They are delicious to have on their own and delicious to have dunked in a cup of tea.
Custard creams are one of my best loved biscuits and these from Crawfords are on top of my list any time when I feel like something to go with my cup of tea.my kids are mad about them as well.flavour and quality are there so I would recomend it to all the biscuits lovers .I will be buying them on my next shopping.
My sister LOVES these little biscuits. I was expecting them to be a bit sweeter than they were, but dunked in my tea I do like them. According to my sister, they are perfect.
These are without a doubt my absolute favorite buiscut. The perfect crunch with the wonderful sweet creamy filling. I just can't get enough. These came straight to my door super fast from the British corner shop. That was the best. I was quite surprised by just how quickly they came. I will definitely be ordering more from here soon.
Ah, custard creams. These biscuits are my favourite for after a long day when I need a wee hit of sugar. Similar biscuits are available here, but they lack the richness of the shortbread and the creamy vanilla filling. There's also a magic in how soft they feel as they seem to melt away in my mouth. These certainly bring back childhood memories.
These Custard Creams are the family favourite. For myself I buy Ginger Nuts, but my daughter and my husband want the Custard creams. The thing about these (I do pinch one occasionally) is that they have produced the perfect biscuit to encase the creamy filling. Nothing like those ghastly puff pastry biscuits or that over-sweet crunchy type. These are (I imagine) one of Crawfords main products worldwide. PS. I used to have to fill my suitcase when on trips to the UK, but now it is so easy with BCS). Thanks.
I think custard creams are one of the nicest biscuits on the market, the filling takes this treat to the next level.
Years ago, I used to dunk them in my tea, this annoyed my mum but the taste was worth the telling off.
These day I no longer drink tea as I prefer coffee and I can say that custard creams are good coffee dunkers too.
My papa has always been rather partial to a custard cream... So I just had to buy him a number of packets. It absolutely made his day and will be having a couple with his tea each afternoon for some time to come! Thank you to British Corner Shop, it's wonderful to have the tastes of home all the way out here.
Crawfords Custard Creams have been around for Donkeys years.
They are so simple yet so tasty and their appeal is timeless.
The crunchy biscuits either side of a squirt of a custard flavoured cream combine perfectly well and allow you to enjoy this tasty biscuit at any time, morning with a tea, afternoon as a snack or in the evening with some Horlicks.
I totally agree with a five star review here. Crawford's Custard Cream biscuits are excellent value for money, everyday biscuits. Creamy custard flavoured center between two crisp shortbread biscuits. I don't usually dunk a cream filled biscuit but custard creams are an exception. The custard filling does not melt and ruin your hot drink and it becomes even more creamy. Definitely a five star biscuit.
How fantastic to be able to order Crawfords Custard Creams from BCS - they take me straight back to my childhood (over 60 years ago!) - crunchy biscuit layers enclosing a smooth cream filling. Every day I can't wait for teatime to be able to indulge myself with one or more.
Custard creams are THE best biscuit in the world - ever! I have never met anyone who doesn't like them and I'm sure that's because that person doesn't actually exist.
The two biscuits are simple, the creamy centre is the perfect compliment to both the taste and texture of the biscuit. There's something really childish about squeezing the bottom of the two biscuits to see if they come apart clean or if one breaks but we all do it.
It's also one of those 'how do you eat it' biscuits. Dunking it so the centre melts a little; biting straight through both the biscuit and the cream; taking off one biscuit and scraping off the centre with your teeth or just licking it off...yep, not the classiest of biscuits but definitely the best.
These great little biscuits seem to have always existed and what a lovely thing to be able to order them and have some all these years later! There are so many different varieties of biscuits today but these are the irreplaceable classics from everyone's childhood (or adulthood!). They really haven't changed.
I've learnt to make a lot of the Great British food that I could never buy over here in Italy before now, and I have to admit that I've always had great results. One thing that I won't be making again though, are custard creams. Crawfords originals are so deliciously crumbly and creamy, and they are so low in price that honestly, it's not worth me lighting the oven to make them! Just make sure that you order a good few packets because one biscuit leads to another! The baroque style design stamped onto each one is something you don't really notice when you're eating them but take a good look next time... it's quite beautiful.
I ordered 2 packs of these Custard Cream biscuits but should of ordered more as they are delicious. Just as I remember a custard creams used to be. The 2 squares of crisp biscuit with custard flavour fondant cream inside. Great with your afternoon tea or coffee. I will be ordering more and can recommend these.
