I am very partial to a Mince Pie at Christmas although I can be slightly fussy. This is because pastry isn't my favourite thing in the world & also because you sometimes seem to buy pies from shops that claim to be "Deep Filled" & look large, only to take a bite & discover that "Deep Filled" actually means where the filling ends is deep inside the pie & half of it is air! The thing I like most about these pies is that you don't have the problem of a mince & air pie. The Icing is on top of the mince. No huge gap & no pocket of air. Great stuff. The packet comes with 6 pies inside. The icing is Royal Icing ... Read the complete review

Being Christmas time, there is nothing I love more at this time of year than being able to eat Mince Pies. I don't like all of them though, I only like the iced top ones and I prefer the Tesco ones over any. They only come out in the festive season, so I make sure I stock up on as many boxes as I can and then eat as many as possible until I am fed up of them for the next November when they begin to appear once again. I am the only person I know that likes Mince Pies, they just sum up Christmas to me and I love them with a nice cup of tea which is why I've decided to review them.

Time was when a mince pie was simply a dollop of mincemeat encased in a pale pastry case, simple as that. You knew where you were and what you would receive if you went into a coffee shop or tea house and asked for a mince pie to accompany your hot drink. Nowadays if you set out to buy this little yuletide treat you are faced with a bewildering array of mince pies in all shapes, sizes and styles. You can have them in puff pastry, choux pastry and shortcrust pastry. You can have them covered in chocolate (Yuk!) you can have them with Viennese style cake on top, you can even have them with fresh cream oozing out of every hole. The mincemeat has had virtually every ... Read the complete review

From the Tesco Christmas range comes.... What are they? Just as the packet states "sweet shortcrust pasty cases filled with sweet mincemeat and topped with a soft icing" These are by far the best and most original mince pies I've ever tasted. The pastry is moist,soft and sweet to taste. Unlike most mince pies these have no pastry "top" as it were, instead they are topped with a devine layer of sweet white icing. The icing compliments the sweet mixed spice mincemeat incredibly and makes for a fantastic Christmassy taste in your mouth! What's in them? Mincemeat, fondant, wheat flour, vegetable oil, ...
