for 6 pies – 41.5p each.
Now that I’ve taste tested the almond mince tarts, I can move on to the sloe gin version.
Here is last year’s review: ALDI Sloe Gin Mince Tarts
I’ve already tried the almond pies and I wasn’t enamored with them. These where delicious last year and I’m hoping for the same this year, if not, better!
The box is the same pretty much as the almond topped mince tarts and the pies also contain an almond flaked top, so they look very similar as well. The only difference with these, is that they contain sloe gin.
Okay so I’m going to tuck in now. Oh………..They are just like I remembered them. The pastry of the tart is nice and strong, which is a great start.
The filling is quite firm and has a really luxurious, fruity cherry taste which I’ve not found in any other pies. The mincemeat doesn’t taste alcoholic either, so don’t let that put you off if you’re not a fan of gin.
If I had the choice between these and the almond topped pies, I would choose these every single time, as they are far superior in taste and yet, they cost exactly the same! It’s a no-brainer. Aldi have outdone themselves again with this product.
Taste (1 – 10) – 10/10 – Top marks for taste. Fantastically flavoured mincemeat.
Value for money (1 – 5) – 3/5
Total – 12/15
