These aren't new foods, but they are new to me. I never had either before. I bought both when I went food shopping yesterday. I like the crumpets. They remind me of English muffins. The polenta wasn't what I thought it was going to be. I thought it was going to be more of a cornbread type thing. I kept frying it & frying it & I just didn't think it was cooked good/right. This type you just slice & cook. We still have half of a roll left to cook.
