Luckily, you do not need to go all the way to Cornwall to enjoy a good old fashioned Cornish Pasty. Thankfully, Ginsters are right there in the refridgerator department in the supermarket to offer packaged, ready to eat pasties. Ginsters are actually Ginsters of Cornwall and I believe cornish pasties are like champagne, they cannot be called a cornish pasty unless they have actually been made in Cornwall. So, all the better for us as I have been to Cornwall and their pasties are some of the best I have ever tasted. Basically a pasty is a type of pie or filled pastry case that is folded over to form a half circle. On the edge it is pressed together so you get ... Read the complete review

For no real reason, I just fancied a cornish pasty for lunch. Maybe it had something to do with passing a pasty shop whilst out and about. However my destination was Tescos and the nearest I could get to an orignial Cornish Pasty was a prepacked Ginsters pasty. The packaging makes it quite clear that this is a Cornish company, so they must be OK! After returning from my food shop I put the oven on, and popped the pasty in for its alloted 20 mins. You can eat the pasty hot or cold but I think warm is best. Meanwhile my tummy was rumbling and the smells that were being emitted from the oven were making me salivate!!! Iwas really looking forward to my ... Read the complete review

Ginsters Original Cornish Pasty. Well being of Cornish descent and being a frequent visitor to the beautiful west country county, I am very partial to clotted creams and the traditional Cornish pasties. However living in the Midlands it is somewhat restricting when it comes to getting hold of these items. I have, however found a wonderful alternative in the form of Ginsters Pasties and although they are not exactly the real McCoy, even though they are from Cornwall, they are a very tasty alternative. The black wrapping on a Ginsters Pasty is so distinctive that you really can't fail to miss it in the supermarket fridges. It has a ... Read the complete review

Ginsters have a bit of a rep at the moemtn (and for quite a few years now) for being sort of the cream of the crop when it comes to pastried foods. I really like the slices they do, sucha s the Ham & Cheese slice, and the Peppered Steak slice, alothough the price usually makes me restrict myself to whenever they have an offer on them somewhere. The same goes for their Cornish Pasty, and the other day I managed to pick it up on offer for £1, whereas usually it would be closer to the £2 mark, depending on where you get it from. I was instantly impressed. I know that you can heat these up and they taste much nicer, but I tend to buy these sorts of products ... Read the complete review
