  • I've just had my first one of the year and they are clearly the best thing about the festive period.

    The concept is simple.... Rate your mince pies.

    Morrisons "The Best" Deep fill Mince pie.
    Price: £1.69 for 6
    Appearance: Good size, and solid looking. Snow flake and crystalised sugar aesthetic.
    Pastry: Nice and firm, doesn't overly crumble, idea for desk munching. Possibly a bit stodgy.
    Mince: Good amount of mince, large fruity bits, maybe a little to processed, not earthy enough.

    7/10

  • favourite mice pies of yesteryear:

    starbuck's (shameful, i know)
    pret (they're pretty good!)
    st john's (until i realised that the reason they're so good is because they probably contain vast amounts of LARD)

  • kispy kreme mince pie dohnut

    Pret ones are very nice.

    Best ever (packaged) mince pies were Asda's luxury brandy mince pies, c.1996-98. Combined amazingly rich filling with golden pastry, and just the right dusting of sugar.

    Oh God I love mince pies so much nomnomnomnomnom

    Shocking

  • Any all-butter, deep fill, brandy soaked ones get the thumbs up from me. Fucking love 'em.

  • In 'Deli on the Quay' Poole,
    deep filled, all butter pastry, mixed fruit, often hot out of the oven,
    lush
    I love a good mincer.................(cue general abuse)

  • think i've already done at least 2 packs of co-ops luxury. some chick at work brought a tupperware box full of 'em in today with cute little christmas trees cut out on top...cue who makes the best mincer comp. i plan to sit back, enjoy and take the long route home.

    Lard; this is why Poland's entry into the EU threatened our Christmas.

  • Marks & Spencer's deep-fill. Standard.

    Have you had one?

  • Have you had one?

    Had one last year and it just tasty weird. Nice and hot with brandy butter! YUM YUM

  • Had mine for the first time a few weeks back with Cream.

    Rather nice it was.

  • Shop bought mince pies = fail, can't wait to get home to my parents' and get some of my mum's mince pies down my neck.

  • mmmmmm...... mince pies are the best thing about christmas.....

    the winners are my gran's puff pastry mince pies, unbeatable. but they have to be hot. my mouth is watering thinking about them.

    but so far have only had m&s ones this year. not the best...
    price: can't remember, but it was 2 for 1
    appearance: good
    mincemeat: pretty good
    pastry: too much of it, not a great texture

    just plain wrong!!!!!!!!

  • +1 on the puff pastry mince pies.

  • yeah, they are the best. might have to make some tomorrow now i'm thinking about them....

  • oooh, another grandma tip...

    add a finely chopped cooking apple to the mincemeat. makes it more moist and tasty somehow, and it goes further....

  • Marks & Spencer's deep-fill. Standard.

    I thought I was the only that made sense.

    Thank you SP

    Absolute standard.

  • I have to hold myself back until December to start the mince pie consumption, it could get out of control otherwise.

    The best are home made for sure.

    Or free, can't turn down free fuel

  • Imo they are the Devils snot.

  • grandma's pies are always the best - she's got the cold fingertips required for perfect pastry making.
