Review: Shocking. What a state. Co-op’s most standard pie is an abomination.
What can I say? This is not good at all. To provide a bit of context, my middle son is a big mince pie fan too, he tried this one before I did and ended up spitting it out into the bin…
I can see why. It’s maybe the plainest and driest looking pie ever. And that translates to the taste. It’s like the ‘spoon of nutmeg challenge’ (if you haven’t seen that, Google it), the pastry sucks every ounce of moisture out of your mouth and the mincemeat doesn’t help you out at all.
Disappointed in Co-op for letting this out the door. They’ve had a good showing in recent years, but this one leaves a bad taste in the mouth – quite literally.
