Sainsbury’s Mince Pie Flavour Cookies Review 2018

Sainsbury’s Mince Pie Flavour Cookies Review 2018

Overall rating: 9/10

Review: This is a first for me – a cookie with mince pie flavour. And it’s good, really good.

The cookies are just what you’d want in consistency – firm enough to hold but nice and soft when you bite into them.

I know you’re only interested to hear about the taste though – and they do taste like mince pies. They’re full of sultanas and raisins which does help – and if I’m being honest you do get a little hint of them being ‘gingerbread-y’. But overall, in this alternate category, they’re the clear winner.

Sainsbury’s Taste The Difference All Butter Mince Pie Review 2018

Overall rating: 6.5/10

Review: Whilst being one of the most impressive looking mince pies of the season, the Sainsbury’s flagship pie falls flat.

Probably a matter of form over function – and that probably works for them. Most people aren’t opening their 10th box of mince pies on November 9th…they go to their supermarket of choice and pick a fancy box. Don’t…well not if you shop at Sainsbury’s.

This pie isn’t terrible – but as this is their pricey offering it needs to be better. The filling is the main culprit. The after taste is almost chemical…it’s odd, I can’t put my finger on it but I don’t like it. The pastry is far too smooth and pale – verging on undercooked. Not one I’d be happy to see on a plate at Xmas.
