Why Mince Pies?

The first reason I started reviewing Mince Pies was because there weren’t that many reviews around for them and, secondly, I have yet to find a review site that shows you the pie, or the box together.

Supermarkets seem to advertise quite poorly for Mince Pies, not providing a picture when you’re browsing online, or removing the price if the product is out of stock. Some Supermarkets enrage me by providing NO information on some of the pies they are selling. I believe I have, in some way, tried to make up for their festive inadequacies.

When the clocks go back and the nights draw in, I like to surround myself with pastry and sweet mincemeat… figuratively speaking that is.

Many of you won’t have a clue why I am doing this, but I’ll explain. I’m a mince pie fiend. I can’t think of many festive foods that get me Christmassy like a pastry blanket caressing the ultimate dark heaven! There’s nothing quite like it really.

Since 2016, I’ve searched moderate distances in my quest for the best mince pie on offer each year. I try to capture the feeling I experience so that perhaps you can make a more informed choice when choosing the pie for your festive occasions.

Last year I had a brilliant response to my posts as well as people sending me pies. I gladly welcome any donations.

I already have a number of locations on my radar and always welcome any suggestions for new ones.

**if you hate mince pies, this might not be for you. I hope you read this purely to make you a little happier, knowing I’m indoors and cannot hurt anyone.
