Sorry to be snobby, but Jus-roll gets a failing grade from us. 
There's other brands that are just frozen, that might be better.  Waitrose has some really good ones.

If grading them as a croissant, they should fail, if that's what you mean.  I want to know how they compare specifically to Pillsbury crescent rolls... which are not in any way comparable to a proper buttery croissant.  I just want those stupid little fake rolls to pop in the oven* and nom on...

They are a great substitute for Pillsbury!

Yeah ,but the ones that taste really good, i.e. all butter puff pastry and and proper butter filled croissants don't work for someone who can't eat dairy (and this is in the diary free eating thread  ;))

Yay!  I will give them a try when I have built my kitchen (which looks like a possibility, if distant, now that my husband actually has a job nearby to start soon!).

Thinking about it, they're sort of a half-breed of croissants & crescent rolls.  The pastry is quite a bit flakier than Pillsbury crescents, and not nearly as flaky as a croissants.

Hmm... so they sound nicer than a Pillsbury one, maybe?  Would they still work for wrapping around hot dogs to make (American-style) Pigs in Blankets?  I generally prefer real food, but sometimes I like a down 'n dirty American indulgence.  I know where to find Oscar Mayer, and I'm not afraid to do this.

I imagine they would do the job.

I so want to teach my husband about terrible American snack foods, but there's no good UK analog.  But I'll try these with hot dogs cut in half.  And I'm going to try my hand at making pizza rolls one day.  And egg rolls.  Some day in the future, we will have the most awesome New Year's Eve junk food.  He won't even know what hit him (it's called "heart attack")!

This is the only reason I buy the Jus-roll crescents... for wrapping around frankfurters!  My OH had never experienced these before, but loves them now.   :D

And egg rolls. 

Are egg rolls not the same as spring rolls?

Yes! Here's hoping it's the same with none of the nasties often added to meet EU preservation standards.
