Mince pie chat

Don’t have an issue about a single company making them, just that people (my Mum) think that the best mince pies are only available from m&s.

Sorry to get into this, not meant to be a proper debate

You can’t fight in here, this is the mince pie thread!


She has a point.

These are the only nice mince pies that exist

That should’ve been a reply to @SuoTempore

Those look… really good.

My Mum reads the Daily Mail every day though so now I don’t know what to think.

I’ve never particularly liked mince pies but they are amazing.

I find it very frustrating you can get mince pies 2 months before Xmas but not the brandy butter or other delicious condiments.


Here they are. Mainly made by R, bit of assistance from me.


Excellent work (and thank you x)


I find it very frustrating that you can’t get them on like the 28th December.

R’s done a great job there. Rare you see homebaked pies with so little leakage.

I put some of these in this week’s shopping:

I’ll give an update on what they’re like later this week (or maybe I’ll wait until December)

I’m slightly sceptical because raisin wheats are the worst ones, but maybe the extra spices and whatever will lift them? Not that I can get to Sainsburys anyway, but…

Yeah - Apricot good, blueberry good, raisin no ta.

But if I don’t try them I’ll never know

Trying to go for quality over quantity this year. So far have tried the posh ones at Waitrose, Sains and co-op. Waitrose miles ahead, then Sains then co-op which aren’t good at all

All three very heavy on booze

I think this might just be the most important thread of 2020.


Saw Sainsbury’s are doing a puff pastry one in their bakery section this year. Might make those my first of the year next time I go shopping.

First one of the year. Barely even registered if it was any cop - inhaled the fecker - but it’s a standard Morrisons own brand. 12 for £1.50 for the PPMP lads. Yes mates
