Buying Tips

Buy scones in bakeries, or in the bakery section of some natural food or specialty stores. Choose the whole-grain variety whenever possible.


Scones are usually dry and sweet, sometimes savory, and may contain dried fruits, nuts, spices, and a variety of grains, including whole-grains and oats. They may be triangular, round, or square.
