It is a shame you didn't cover Co-Op's offerings, I have been thinking of investing in some of their pies, and would have liked an expert opinion.

And they're probably called mince pies because they used to have meat in them.

Quick Q, did you oven bake the Waitrose All Butter pies for 8-10 minutes before tasting?

A few weeks back they got voted number 1 by some mag the missus reads. Without heat, they are nasty, with heat, scrummy!

I ate 3 last night. Mmm mmm

I'm guessing the best they can manage in the office is to stick them on a GTX480 for a while :P

This review is the single most important reason to buy Custom PC around Christmas - you get this vital information a few weeks before it appears on the website! I shall be off to M&S this week, and I might just get a drop of port while I'm there...

OK... I have to ask... "fruity mincemeat" - does it mean it has a mince - meat in it? I thought mince pie is a pie with meat in it... some time ago I heard Christmas mince pies are with fruity-jamy feeling...
So what is up with those mince pies? What are they? Never tried one before.. Now. looks like I need to go to M&S and buy some...

5/5 and no excellence sticker?
now M&S wont be able to advertise their products with full Bit-Tech backing

@ Phinix, 150yrs ago or so Mince pies used to be mostly meat, with expensive things like spices and dried fruit added as a festive indulgence, as the prices of the fruity spicy boozy bits came down that became the prime ingredient. Proper mince pie filling still contains suet which gives away it's origin as a meaty pie

I was excited for this too :-(

Wonder if I can buy one of these in the USA, just to get an idea.

I'd like a review of the iceland mince pies, imho (in my humble opinion) they're quite nice, although the pastries a bit dry... But at £2 for 18 i'm not complaining :P

Edit: Just had another one... make that VERY dry pastry. Still not complaining though

Why is there no info on modding a mince pie into a gastronomic orgy?

Why are there so many Pasty's in this Mine pie review?

"shelves ok Britain".

Thought there'd be more mince pies than 4!

Mince pies on their own are a bit boring. But put 2 in a bowl, microwave for 30-45secs, and splash double cream and a bit of brandy butter on it = heaven.

*Which* is the best mince pie, not *what*- stop offending me with your terrible grammar.

As it is, cheap ones are the best- you can buy more for the same amount of money :D

If you are in Australia either Villis or Balfours are the best around. Mrs Macs wouldn't be my pick.
