Low fat version isn't nice
Love malt load but bought this on offer, not realising it was the low fat version. That explains the odd grainy texture and dryness, compared to lovely, sticky full fat version. For me, it's an occasional treat, for the kids it's great after school, and they don't really need to worry about the fat. So I'll try not to buy the low fat one again, oops.
tastes good but unsliced is better
This tastes good, even better toasted with butter. I thought the pre-sliced loaf would be handy but because its so sticky the slices were all squashed together and we found it better to but the unsliced version.
Tasty but goes mouldy too quickly
Ive been buying Malt Loaf for years, it used to be a store cupboard essential in my house - great for lunch boxes (doesnt get crushed and doesnt need to go in the fridge), healthy and filling. It used to keep for ages, maybe go a bit dry but was still edible and who doesnt like it with a load of butter on anyway? Since they have made it more squidgy though, it goes mouldy really quickly and I end up throwing it away before Ive had more than a couple of slices. I wont be buying it any more, which is a real disappointment.
Toasted, this is a revelation. Crunchy caramelised sugar, gooey inside.
We keep buying these and theyre always mouldy. Wont buy again
I Prefer Less Fruit!
Personally I prefer the more recent version; less of the squidgy fruit but still the same great taste! The ready sliced option is a good idea and I have been buying this recently instead of the regular loaf ... but I've really gone off all Soreen for the time being due to mould! I opened a loaf (within the BBE date) to find it absolutely smothered with furry white mould (I was surprised because I didn't think they ever went mouldy, maybe just a bit dry?) But on checking the other two I already had in the cupboard, I found they also had these patches of white mould over their surface. They were a different batch, longer dated, and kept in a different place to the first one, so I contacted Soreen as all 3 were unopened and within date. They found no issues their end and sent coupons for 2 replacement loaves! ... needless to say I haven't used them yet!!!
