Co-op Irresistible Deep Filled Mince Pie Review

Overall Rating: 10/10

Ladies and gentlemen, after weeks of looking, I’ve found a 10. And in the most unlikely place imaginable – amongst the terrible selection Co-op have managed to put out to date.

The pastry is a perfect mixture of crumbly, soft, sweet and firm. I’m not sure how they’ve done it, but they have.

The mincemeat is the best too – lovely full fruit, juicy and brandy-soaked (just the right amount of brandy) and the perfect amount to.

The top is sugary but crucially not too sweet. Again, not sure how they’ve done that.

This is a tall pie – it does say deep filled but lots of them say that and they disappoint. It’s 1 1/2 inches tall and flat on top – a real big eat. Only comes in a pack of two though – and I can’t work out why?! Maybe on some stores they sell them in 4? I’ll have to tweet Co-op and find out…watch this space.

Find these. Buy them. Goodnight.

  1. Very pleased to discover this website. These were my go to mince pies last year, and i have already bought a few packs this year.

    Best part is in January when they start reducing them!
