Co-op Irresistible All Butter Pastry Deep Filled Mince Pie Review 2018

Overall rating: 9/10

Review: The King is dead, long live the King. So very close from Co-op…last year’s 10/10 mince pie has slipped one point to 9/10. It’s just not as good as the ASDA Extra Special deep filled pie.

The pie pastry is still sweet and biscuit-like but it’s too thick. So very slightly too thick. It’s a bit of a task to chomp through the (not so) little bugger. The mincemeat is sweat and full of whole fruity bits – it’s sweat and has a hint of brandy to it. But the taste of the mincemeat isn’t as good as the ASDA pie.

That’s not to say this isn’t nice – it’s a really great mince pie…it’s just not a 10 anymore. Maybe next year Co-op.

  1. Like yourself I have been working my way through all the mince pies available lately. These pies are usually so so good. About £1 for two.

    Every year my wife and I enjoy them – but this year the pastry was extremely thick and overcooked and the filling was not as umptious as usual.

    It could have just been a glitch in our local batch so although we usually give these pies 9/10 I will mark them at 7/10 and buy another couple to see if they are better!
