Heston Lemon & Spiced Mince Pies

£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
