Aldi Quicksters Breakfast Muffin Review
When these first came out this year I couldn’t get any for love nor money, always gone always empty packing boxes left on the Aldi shelves, but finally I got one, behind a box. I don’t know if that means that people can’t get enough of it(which is what I think) or the suppliers haven’t sent as much to the stores. Either way, the muffin itself is about 9cm in circumference and approx. 5cm thick before heating and adding the ingredients.
As soon as you bite into this dusty breakfast muffin you get a good strong warm mix of flavours, just what a breakfast muffin should have: a rich sausage meat flavour, a good cooked egg taste, a decent quality sliced cheese and a bit of tangy sweetness from the ketchup(its a good sweet tangy ketchup as well). And that’s what this has, its not as fresh as a Mcmuffin but the tastes are not far off. The only thing that lets it down is the muffin bread itself which is quite chewy and not as soft as I would like but overall not a bad snack at all and great quality(minus the bread) for the price.
