Co-op Deep Filled Mince Pie Review

Overall Rating: 5/10

Bloody hell. If you thought the last Co-op Mince Pie was bad…this is worse.

It’s filled to the brim, but with a paste.

The pastry is…dismal.

Go and read about the lack of a deal Theresa May’s managed to get instead. You’ll be happier than me – cos I’ve just had to eat this mince pie…so you don’t have to.

Aldi (Holly Lane) Deep Filled Shortcrust Mince Pie Review

Overall rating: 5/10

When you consider the quality, taste and texture of the Aldi Cognac-steeped mince pie I reviewed a week or so ago, I was expecting similar levels of greatness from their standard range. I was wrong.

Overall the mince pie is too dry, mainly thanks to a disappointing shortcrust. The mincemeat itself has very little defining taste, in fact I cannot remember what it really tasted of – despite finishing it only moments ago. A lack of a sugar sprinkle or tinge of warming alcohol tops off a thoroughly mediocre mince pie. Pay the extra and get the others.

Not unpleasant, just underwhelming. Sorry Aldi.
