Review: There are some staples in the world of British food, Walkers Crisps, Heinz beans…and of course Mr Kiplings cakes. In Christmases gone by, the standard Mr Kipling mince pie has scored fairly reasonably with a handful of 7/10 to his name.Read More
Review: Guess who’s back, back again…it’s this blog, tell a friend. Enough of the fanfares, down to business – but not before saying thanks to the countless people who’ve hassled, cajoled and guilted me into reviewing mince pies again for the 2023 season.Read More

Review: Amongst the many special deals and myriad toys and games in Aldi today, I spied their entry level mince pie. A very red, festive box…but what’s inside?
Review: Having recently recovered from Covid suffering nothing more than the loss of taste and smell, I find myself seriously behind on mince pie reviews.

Review: A nice looking mince pie from Lyons for 2021. But wait what’s this…? The box is identical to their 2020 offering, the pies looking the same and they even cost the same. Good sign? These scored 8/10 last time.
