£3.00 for four pies.
Last year’s review can be found here: 4 Spiced Shortcrust Mince Pies With A Lemon Twist – Heston from Waitrose
So it’s Christmas eve.
What to review… what to review…
How about the special mince pies that Heston likes to create? Sure.
Last year I scored these an 8. I found them quite heavily spiced, even with smooth taste of the lemon curd which I adored. They also look quite stunning.
This year I don’t believe they tasted any different. I am impressed with the flavours and textures he creates, but as the competitors are making huge strides in mince pie varieties – whilst keeping the costs down, these are exactly the same as last year according to my taste buds and £3.00 for the privilege.
Taste (out of 10) – 8
Value (out of 10) – 4
Overall – 12/20
