People baffled by ‘cremated’ jet black rolls – but some love to buy them crispy

Everyone has their own preferences when it comes to grub – but these bread rolls have caused quite the stir among foodies.

The 'heavy fired' bap, part of the authentic Scottish cuisine, is currently being sold at Hyde Indoor Market in Greater Manchester. But the prominent burnt appearance on the top of the roll has left a sour taste in some social media users mouths.

Despite being loved by Scots, a picture of the rolls was posted onto social media where people have been left absolutely baffled as to why anyone would want to consume the charred bread.

Chewy on the inside and on the crispier end of the spectrum on the outside, the munch, also known as a 'well-fired roll', certainly looks like it has the crunch appeal.

However, this is not to everyone's taste.

Shared onto local Manchester Facebook groups, some people have had some very strong words to say about the rolls – including that they look 'cremated'.

One person commented: "Like them well done but these are a bit too far! They look like they’ve been taken out of the fire."

Another user quipped: "My dad was a baker. When he did this he'd call them 'flashed'… mum disagreed. They were burnt. From an outsiders perspective I think dad had taken his eye off the ball."

While a third person voiced: "I love a well done one but not a cremated one."

This user questioned: “Definitely carcinogenic. Be careful.”

But, others revealed that they are huge fans of the 'heavy fired' roll and love the overcooked top.

One user remarked: "These are beautiful, Jesus. I always grab a dozen when in Hyde and the oven bottoms for my son and husband but they tried one and now are addicted."

A second person praised: "I love them like this, I can literally smell this picture."

Someone else shared: "I'm Scottish and these are well fired rolls and they sell out by 8am back home. My favourite with square slice and brown sauce."

In 2018 Scotland's food standards agency warned consumers to limit their intake of well-fired rolls and other foods rich in starch to guard against acrylamide a cancer-causing chemical.

However, according to Cancer Research UK Acrylamide from burnt toast, burnt chips, or crispy potatoes is unlikely to increase the risk of cancer.
