Pros: Crescents are great when used as a foundation for recipes
Cons: none noted
Pillsbury? Original Crescent Rolls are reliable and good tasting. The 8 small rolls per tube packaging bake up flaky and fluffy. They are a nice to serve along with a special dinner, and can be enjoyed at anytime during the day when a warm something from the oven is craved. I like the size, they are easily held by little hands, husband downs them quickly, but then, there are more so that too is not a problem.
I usually find Pillsbury Crescent rolls at our local Wal-Mart. Use by/Freshness dates are stamped on the can. Price is rising, seems to be more each time I check. Transportation costs are driving the costs higher I suppose.
