6 Iced Topped Mince Pies, by Sainbury’s

£1.30 for six pies

Many thanks to my friend, Rich Pitcher for the gift of these pies. He (and I quote) liked the icing. Again, Many thanks mate!!!

He is also a great artist! You can find his art here: https://www.facebook.com/RPitcherArt/

I have reviewed one pack of Iced topped pies already and found them more enjoyable than I had expected.

Like the pies, my review will be short(crust) and sweet.

The iced top is not too sweet, as you might expect at first and works really well with the wetter mincemeat resting below. People can be off put by too much pastry and if this sounds like you, why not give these a try? they are smaller pies but the top could be decorated to look more festive and they go down well with a cup of tea!

Taste (out of 10) – 7

Value (out of 10) – 8



Positives –  not-too-sweet iced top breaks up the taste of pastry +2

Negatives – quite small and as with the Mr Kipling pies icing is not for everyone on a mince pie -1
