"Store-Bought" Scones

A couple of tea friends told me about "pull-apart" scones from the grocery store.
I've been looking for for several weeks.
While shopping at our local WalMart, I found these Barista Baking Company™ "Break and Bake" Scones.
There were two flavors to choose from, Almond and Chocolate Chip.
I purchased a package of the almond flavored scones to bake at home. 
I baked and taste-tested them last night.

These are NOT sweet and frosted like the cake-textured two bite scones found in most grocery stores.
They were "ok" but, keep in mind I am very critical of scones.  They would have been much better if I had clotted or Devonshire cream and curd or preserves to eat with them!

However, in my opinion, you can't beat the taste of fresh, home baked English scones. 

Comment added later, thanks to Ruth's question:
These were in the refrigerated section near the canned biscuits and regrigerated cookies.
