REVIEW: Soreen - The Original Malt Loaf Company

Soreen Fruity Five* (£1.20 or currently on offer 2 for £2 from Tesco) is one of their newer malt loaves, it's packed full of dried fruit and reminds me of Christmas for some reason! 

Having malt loaf when I was younger was such a treat, the squidgy-ness spread with margarine and consumed in almost one mouthful was (and still is) complete heaven. I remember leaving for university, the first time I had full reign of what I ate and I would buy a Soreen Malt Loaf almost every week. Somehow you have a couple of slices and before you know it nearly the whole loaf has disappeared! It's just so moreish. If you've never tried it before you are seriously missing out - it's chewy, squidgy, packed full of raisins and can be eaten in a variety of different ways.

Soreen Toastie Loaf* (£1.20 from Tesco) is ideal for breakfast, toasting malt loaf is a new concept to me but it's so warming for colder days.

I have to admit I do tend to eat Soreen Malt Loaf spread with margarine but having had a peek at their website the options are endless, as is their range now! I couldn't believe how many different varieties of Soreen Malt Loaf there is now; from chocolate to banana to apple and sultana! After reading their 'Yummy Ideas' area of their website I now have a long list of recipes I can't wait to try out, I just need to get loads more as all of the products below have mysteriously disappeared (in my tummy)!

Soreen Banana Lunchbox Loaves* (£1.35 from Tesco) can fit nicely in a lunch box for a healthier alternative to chocolate bars. The banana loaf is really tasty, it's a lot lighter than the original malt loaf and can be eaten without margarine if you prefer.

These recipes are at the top of my list....

(I don't think I've ever tried a Baked Alaska before but I think I'd love it!)

Soreen Apple and Sultana* (£1.20 or currently on offer 2 for £2 from Tesco) is also a new addition to their range, I really liked this one because the apples somehow made it quite refreshing.

Which is your favourite variety from the Soreen Malt Loaf range?
Have you tried any of the recipes?
I'd love to know which ones are work a try :)


  1. I haven't tried Soreen Malt Loaf before but I like the sound of the brownies and flapjack! Danielle x

  2. The actual malt loaf I always used to toast, but you have to do it in a grill (or risk gumming up your toaster permanently, as I found out the hard way) and you do have about a 5 second period between "perfect to eat" and "on fire"!

    I got excited about the toastie loaf but then realised probably half the fun is trying not to set it on fire.

    S xo.

  3. Oooo yum! This post has made me want malt loaf so bad!
    I haven't had it in ages! Definitely like the look of the toastie loaf!
