Tesco Value Apple Pies
I came across this product a little while back now, i went in tescos to buy the Mr Kipling Apple Pies however they had sold out, so i saw these and they were around 40 pence, i then thought what the heck even if there bad i have only wasted 40 pence.
They come in a clear wrapper displaying the product information on the front in a red banner and there is also the tesco value logo on display.
The pies them seleves appear slightly smaller than the Mr Kipling Version,
Up on trying the pies i was pleasently surprised. The pastry was nice and so was the filling. However it did seem to lack a little filling, theres alot more pastry and less filling than what you get with Mr kipling but his are alot dearer.
Definatly worth a try and there not bad at all, they just lack a little filling, ( suppose its a good excuse to eat more though )
Sometimes I like buying little apple pies that you can eat straight outta the box. Usually I buy Mr. Kipling's Bramley Apple Pies and those are the obvious choice. However I recently came across Tesco Value Apple Pies and I decided to give them a go.
You get six in the box (obviously) as with Mr. Kipling, except because they are Tesco Value they are in the coarse packaging of blue, red and white (obviously), and of course you get them in the lovely little pastry cases.
To be perfectly honest these were lovely. I didn't really taste much difference except there was perhaps a little less apple sauce and a little more pastry than old Kipling's, but the sauce tasted really good.
They don't have any nuts in them and per serving there's 6.8g of fat and 185 calories so they're perhaps not the most slimming food.
Still, the pack of six only cost 32p and I think that's pretty good considering the Mr. Kipling ones cost between £1-2.
So the box may not be pretty and they may not be as nice as Mr. Kipling's but in these hard times they're a ruddy good bargain.
