To celebrate the launch of our new festive-themed domain offers, we’re kicking off our Annual Best Mince Pie Awards 2012.
Each year we brave the chilly December weather and fill our baskets with the finest mince pies on offer from the leading UK supermarkets. Our simple objective (apart from eating some tasty mince pies) is to award the winner of our highly acclaimed Best Mince Pie Award 2012.
This week it’s the turn of Sainsbury’s 6 Deep Mince Pies.
£1.65 for 6 mince pies, or £2 for 12 mince pies (Special offer).
What we like
Appearance wise we really like the decoration on the top of the pie.
The pastry is nice and thick. We were also impressed with the flavour of the mince. Sainsbury’s have clearly followed the Ronseal approach and ensured their pies do exactly what they say on the tin. So you’ll find a very generous, (or should that be ‘deep’) amount of mince filling in each pie.
We also like the price. A special offer of 2 boxes for £2.00 represents exceedingly good value.
What we don’t like
The pastry top was a bit on the dry side. We also found mince seeping through the base of the pie after the box had been open for a couple of days. That said, the mince pies taste so good it’s unlikely they’ll be sat around for long.
