All butter pastry filled with mincemeat made from vine fruits, apples, brandy, almonds & walnuts.
Energy – 254kcal per pie.
The pie appears to be bulging with filling (from the outside), but is in fact only roughly three-quarters filled.
It is well dusted with sugar, which is apparent from the container having a healthy dusting too.
The pastry feels firm to the fingers
It has that normal mince pie aroma to it, that of the pastry and mincemeat.
It is a tasty mince pie, but has nothing that jumps out at you.
There is not any thing which is exceptional about this pie, but also there is nothing which is altogether bad.
Nicely presented factory manufactured pie with a very well balanced ratio between filling and pastry, pastry is rich and buttery without being overly soft or crumble and could easily be eaten without the mince meat filling. Heavily dusted with sugar though so could do with a shake first to remove the excess.
Rich moist tasty chunky mince meat which works well with the buttery pastry and gives a variation in taste and texture with each bite.
It is a mince pie that does its job. It was enjoyable to eat, and does not put you off from having another.
A very enjoyable and tasty mince pie that doesn’t disappoint.
