97p for 6, 16.2p a pie.
Thank you Mr Chay Boare for the gift of these pies! You’re a star. My first box of mince pies, were given generously in October.
Last year’s review can be found here: Asda 6 Mince Pies
Asda’s basic pies are back and they’re still vegan friendly. Not something that many supermarkets can boast and you get also change from a pound. That, again, is not something you say very often these days.
The shortcrust pastry holds together well, with wetter than normal mincemeat. The mincemeat has a good taste to it, not as well flavoured as some I’ve tried but still a tasty experience. The pies are a bit on the smaller side, but perfectly formed.
Taste (1 – 10) – 7/10 – One for the vegans, respect for that.
Value for money (1 – 5) – 4/5
Total – 11/15
