Overall Score: 7.5/10
Tasting Notes: In a departure from the traditional mince pie, a nice layer of sweet white icing adds a Christmas cake feel athough it does look a little stark next to a standard mince pie. Maybe an icing holly leaf would’ve made these feel more special? They have a good pastry (which you’d expect from the cake masters at Kipling) with enough crumble to satisfy but not annoy. Mincemeat is tasty and sweet but not overly so – the icing doesn’t over sweeten proceedings but there’s maybe a little too much of it.
