Clotted Cream? Double Devon Cream?

Both of these products are available from the King Arthur catalog and at Whole Foods. I love scones, served with strawberry jam and ---- which one of these?
Are they the same, in which case why do they make both? Or is one more traditional? Thicker? Yummier? If you know, please advise!

  1. to me they are both the same and I like them both!

    1. You want the clotted cream for a cream tea. It's way thicker than double, which is really just thick whipping cream.

        I think the double cream is very thick also. I get that most of the time.

          Certainly here in England clotted cream is the way to go - but ambient clotted cream doesn't exist here in the UK - I'm guessing there may be differences between it and the fresh sort. So the original question would need to be answered by someone who has tried the ambient products.
