Nothing is more inviting than warm scones, fresh from the oven. Serve them for breakfast, coffee time, tea time, anytime spread with butter, preserves, lemon curd and, if desired Devon, clotted or whipped cream. Garvey’s organic scones are one of life’s simple pleasures. Our organic scones are made quickly and easily.
I was very skeptical that this would taste as good as the other reviewers said, but it was on sale so I figured I’d give it a try. My 5-yr-old son LOVES scones. Well, not only does it taste great, but it’s ridiculously easy to make and my son was able to help me. In addition, my family comes from England so I’ve had my fair share of all sorts of scones. I have to say these taste pretty authentic. After they were done I wished I’d had clotted cream to go with. And organic to boot, what a find!
Also, being a mom who has to juggle, and never finding a recipe I didn’t have to tweak, I found an even easier way to make them than the instructions on the box. Using 2 boxes I dumped the mixes directly into a disposable foil 1/2 size lasagna pan. Then I put in a full stick of butter that was room temp. I forked it till the dough was little lumps. I didn’t add a flavor because I wanted to see what “original” was like. (Great.) Then I put in a cup of milk and forked it around till it was smooth dough. There was still some dry mix at the bottom of the pan so I added the couple of tablespoons of milk. Then, I got my hands in there and it wasn’t too difficult to pick up the stray bits till the pan was clean and the dough was a ball. Then I smoothed out the dough evenly in the pan. Then I took a knife and scored it in quarters till I had 16 triangles. Baked it and done.
Mind you, I must say that my “easy” way of doing it is only if you don’t mind not having the crusty edges on each triangle, the mark of a “real” scone I suppose. To me, I’d rather save the time, the dishes, and it tastes the same, delicious!

Mmmmmm! These scones are delicious, and I have never been a real fan of scones. They turned out very moist. I added orange flavoring + 2 Tbs sugar to the first batch, and made a simple orange glaze to drizzle on top. Everyone loved them! I look forward to using this mix for cheese scones, chocolate chip scones, cranberry orange sonces, etc! This 6-pack was a great deal with the special promo code.
Home made scone with home made vanilla latte. Yum. Every time I enjoy this combination it makes me feel like I’m rich and retired.
Have been enjoying these scones for years. Just recently saw these available online. Have to try if you haven’t yet; very high quality.
These scones are so good and very easy to make. What a great treat for the whole family. I’m so happy I found these scones. I’ll always have these on hand in the pantry. Delicious!!
These are some of the best stones I’ve ever had. I really like them with raspberry jelly and warm butter. Hot out of the oven yum.
I had some of these incredible scones at a little bed & breakfast some time ago. When I came accross these Garvey scone gems again, I bought them quick and served them up for a special breakfast. Needless to say, I could have been crowned a KING for being so thoughtful! Thanks for carrying these Amazon – and thanks for making them easy to make Garvey Scones.
I generally do not write reviews for prodcuts, but after I had these a few weeks ago I felt that I had to. Easy to make and so worth it. Highly recommended. Easily 5 stars! Thanks for the great product
As a triathlete I watch what I eat, but I still want something that tastes good. With Garveys Organic Scone’s I get both. With organically grown ingredients and no trans fat it accomplishes healthy, and it is also a great tasting product. It is my Saturday morning pre ride fuel.

I love these scones. They were very easy to make, and far above the rest on the shelf in terms of texture and flavor. I used to go to starbucks for a scone, now I just whip up a batch of Garvery’s, and save myself money with a better tasting product.
Garvey Scones are delicious!! And ridiculously easy to make. They are great for a Sunday morning with coffee, the smell while baking are sure to wake the entire neighborhood. I have been thinking that they would make a lovely Holiday gift as well, baked or unbaked!
These scones were fantastic! I put some fresh fruit in the mix and enjoyed them thoroughly.
This is the most heavenly mix ever. From the very opening of the package, you smell a good wholesome smell. I just made these scones and used the Nordic Ware mini scone pan. I topped my scones with cinnamon and sugar. The aroma filled the house and now I am gobbling them up. The are great when paired with PG Tips tea. Guess what? I am buying more already because I want to have these scones very often. Yep, they are that good. Use real butter.
Love these scones, it’s the best way to have fresh scones in the morning. I add fresh berries and a little sugar as the side of the pkg instructs and they are wonderful. Sprinkle powder sugar on top for a little variety.

Garvey’s scones are easy to prepare and the taste and texture are amazing! I’ve never been a huge fan of scones until I tried Garvey’s mix. The instructions are simple and they’re ready in no time. They’re a nice treat to have on hand anytime. So glad I found these!
My son and I both like the blueberry scones at Starbucks, but they always seem to run out before we get there. So I bought this hoping I could make them easy enough and they would taste good. We think they are better, but we get to eat them warm at home. I add fresh blueberries. I will say I do have to add more water than what the box calls for.
I love this mix, and because it is plain it is fun to play with. So far I’ve added chocolate chips to it; that was good, and chopped up dried apricots with about 1/4 cup of almond meal plus about one more TBS milk (delicious), and chopped dates and walnuts (wonderful- served them with honey), and a mix of dried berries (blueberries and strawberries)- marvelous. All these iterations took at the most about 5 minutes to prepare 🙂 I find I don’t have to bake them quite as long as the package says- but I make small scones- and perhaps my oven is erratic. At any rate, keep an eye on your first batch to get a good idea for baking time.
I’m looking forward to trying savory additions next. I’m sure they will be good too.
This mix is fantastic alone, also- but it’s so much fun to add things I find it hard to stop. The mix is excellent quality, and I was very pleased to find the sell by date is a long way off (Nov 17 2011, for my two orders).
I’ve ordered all the Garvey’s mixes, since my family has so enjoyed this one and the coffee cake. This is a truly exceptional company. How lovely to have found them.
Have now made the fresh blueberry scones (as you see on the side of the package- it was great! I topped it with some glaze and the blueberry sugar that Amazon sells.
I also made a rosemary ham, shredded cheese and green onion scone (2 slices thing ham, minced, 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese, and one finely diced green onion)- these were really really good.
And finely, I created a Parmesan, orange peel and white pepper scone that was the best of the lot. I grated the peel off two organic blood oranges, added about 1/3 cup shaved parmesan, and 1/2 tsp white pepper. The taste was absolutely out of this world.
I have tried others and these are definately the best. Nothing better on a Sunday morning than a Garvey’s scone with a little jam and a cup of coffee. And they’re easy to make!
Having just returned from our honeymoon in England, my new husband and I were bemoaning our fate: Chicago is a great food city, but not for cream tea. There simply isn’t anyplace that we know of where one can get fresh scones with clotted cream. Out of curiosity I did a search on Amazon and stumbled across the many and emphatic recommendations for Garvey’s Organic Scone Mix. I took the plunge and got my six boxes, and … I couldn’t be more delighted.
Last night I surprised my husband with my first batch: the basic recipe plus raisins. It was too hot to turn on the oven, so I made half-size dough balls and baked them in the toaster oven for just ten minutes. They were so good! My husband couldn’t decide whether they were tied with the best ones we had in England or whether they might actually be better. The crust was properly crisp and golden, and the inside was light and fluffy. I served them with raspberry jam and Devon cream (also bought from Amazon), and the only problem was that we ate the whole batch before I had a chance to take pictures. Thank you fellow Amazon reviewers for introducing me to my newest favorite baking mix; I can’t wait to make another batch!

Excellent product. Brought back a memory of England. Easy to make and delicious to eat. I gave some away as gifts with no regrets.
THIS PRODUCT BEATS ANY SCONE MIX ON THE MARKET. BEING IRISH, I KNOW HOW A GREAT SCONE SHOULD TASTE. I CONTINUE TO PURCHASE AND TELL MY FRIENDS.
I do not doubt that folks in England just love this stuff but if you like your scones to have a lighter consistency
then stay away from this product.
We buy the six-pack every Christmas for my mother-in-law. She loves scones and this is a particularly easy mix to prepare. The scones from this mix are delicious. She serves them with jam or clotted cream.
This is the second time I have ordered this mix. We love it! The scones are so tender and delicious. I have added cinnamon chips,blueberries, strawberries and cranberries( although not at the same time). I will certainly order again.

After making scones from “scratch”, I found this mix to taste the same as my homemade ones. The mix was quick and easy to prepare. I did make one change: I added an entire stick of butter for a richer taste (best to grate it from a frozen state for easy mixing).
This mix creates yummy scones and short bread. We have used it to make plain scones with a little sugar on top, flattened it out and usd it for strawberry shortcake and also made scones with fresh blueberries. All versions turned out great. My son is allergic to dairy and eggs so it is great for us to find a mix that you add your own version of both. I was able to substitute soy milk and margarine for the regular versions of each and the results were great.
I read the reviews and saw the 5 stars rating, yet was still skeptical about a box mix. I thought no box scone mix could be as good as my scones from scratch, but I gotta say these rival mine. I was blown away from first bite. So buttery and flaky. The best texture ever. Cannot go wrong with this product. Just like homemade. Amazing!
The price was great as we saved quite a bit of money compared to retail outlets. The delivery was prompt and we were lucky to get it under a free shipping promotion. The product itself is one of the best scone mixes that we have tried.
These scones are outstanding! Easy to make and great with tea. The best ever; the kids love them too.
