A Cornish bakery is providing an early taste of Christmas with the launch of two new products and the return of a festive favourite.
Crantock Bakery has partnered their popular Turkey and Cranberry Pasty with a brand new Christmas Sausage Roll, while plum pudding lovers will be thrilled by the new Christmas Pudding and Custard Parcel.
Crantock Bakery’s new product development manager Becky Hornabrook said: “Last Christmas high street shoppers loved our Turkey and Cranberry Pasty as it had the delicious taste of a Christmas dinner but without the stress of cooking it.
“This year we’ve been working hard to add to our range and are really pleased that while people are battling to finish all their Christmas shopping they’ll be able to pick up a slice of Christmas to keep them going and warm them up while they’re trudging round the shops in the cold.”
The Christmas Sausage Roll is made from minced pork and turkey seasoned with sage and cranberry, all wrapped up in light puff pastry.
The brand new Christmas Pudding and Custard Parcel blends deliciously rich Christmas pudding with creamy custard. The treats are encased in a crisp pastry parcel topped with a sprinkling of demerara sugar and ground cinnamon.
And the return of Crantock’s Turkey and Cranberry Pasty, dubbed “the world’s fastest Christmas dinner”, sees the baker pack in the key elements that make up the biggest meal of the year.
The pasties combine tender turkey breast with mixed vegetables, sage and onion stuffing and cranberries – all encased in a hand-crimped flaky pastry crust.
The products are available are now available from a wide variety of bakeries across the South West including The Cornish Oggy Oggy Pasty Company, Cornish Bakehouse, The Newquay Pasty Company, The Mounts Bay Pasty Company, and other independent bakeries.
