Mince Pie Review 2009: Co-Op Truly Irresistible Luxury All-Butter Mince Pie

(viewed 952 times)
Time to start the 2009 mince pie reviews! I'll be scoring on four criteria: pastry, mincemeat, moreishness and value for money.

These Co-Op mince pies were ?1.59 for six (26.5p each) and have an almost shortbread consistency to the crust. Sugary and a tiny bit on the thin side (but not fatty or greasy), it scores 7/10.

Unfortunately, the pastry's let down by the mincemeat. The filling is a bit on the miserly side for a luxury mince pie, with hard raisins and fruit cubes in an (albeit tasty) sauce. Sadly, with a big gap between the filling and the pie's roof, you need to have at least 2 to feel satisfied. 5/10.

Moreish, but not for the right reason. 6/10.

Given the price, they're certainly not a bad pie - the 7cm diameter is quite generous. Value for money tempers the lacklustre filling and promising name and this mincepie gets 6/10 overall.

Another quality Acorah programme. I seriously cannot even believe one single person watches this.

CDs? Pfft, you can barely see them. And as for MP3s? Nah, you can't even smell them. Vinyl ftw.
