Morrisons Deep Filled Mince Pies
Advantages: taste, texture, eat either hot or cold
Disadvantages: none for me!
I have already spoken about my love for Mince Pies on Dooyoo with my review of the Mr Kipling's variety and at that time said that they were the best ones I had ever tasted that weren't home made. Well, forget that, because now I have tasted Morrison's own deep filled Mince Pies and these, in my opinion far exceed Mr Kipling's.
Mine are from "The Best" range, Morrison's equivalent of Tesco's "Finest" and come in packs of 4. They cardboard panel tells you that these are "instore baked deep filled mince pies" and are described as "luxurious all butter pastry mince pies, generously filled with a delicious mincemeat containing cherry, walnut and brandy" costing £1.59 for a single pack they are currently on offer for 2 packs of 4 for £2.50.
Each pie has a light dusting of icing sugar and as you take one out of its foil cup you notice how thin and crumbly the pastry is, their deep filled description is no exaggeration and each pie is easily 2 inches thick and about 2 ½ inches in diameter. Biting into one fills your mouth with the savoury taste of the mincemeat, it has a slight nutty flavour to it and you can taste the fruits contained, not being overly fond of Brandy normally there is just a hint of this in the flavour which doesn't overpower the other flavours but does compliment them well. Served either cold or, my preference hot from the microwave all the flavours mingle together to give you a deliciously tasting pie.
I thought that Mr Kipling's tasted authentic before but comparing them now the Morrison's ones taste far better and really do have homemade qualities about them, probably due to the fact that they are cooked instore before being offered up for sale. A single pie does contain high amounts of calories and sugar though, with one providing 330 kcals, 26.9 grams of sugar and 7.4 grams of saturated fat. It's a good job that I only ever eat them in November and December otherwise I'd be the size of a bus!
Mr Kipling can keep his mince pies from now on, for me its Morrison's The Best all the way and from me I would rate them 5/5 Dooyoo stars. If you are clever enough to be able to make your own Mince Pies then I envy you, but as I am hopeless when it comes to baking they are the closest thing to being homemade that I have ever tasted and would certainly recommend them to anyone who has a Morrison's close to them.
Summary: Baked instore Mince Pies,these are the closest thing to home made
