    Missed out Asda's "selected by you" mince pies - very nice, but very deep.

    No offerings from Morrisons?

    I like their deep filled 'best off' mince pies. Bit pricey though something like1.59 for 4

    Last Christmas my American wife made mince pies for the first time, and they were the best I'd ever had! She used a thick, buttery shortcake crust all over, with plenty of egg and sugar caramelised on top. She just used a fairly standard mince filling from a jar - I can't remember where from, but it was no luxury offering. The end result, though, was incredible and I'm trying to get her to replicate them this year.

    COSTCO's mince pies will put all these tiny things to shame. They won't run CRYSIS though

    Here's an idea for you: stop buying it. Look upon the world in a new light as your drawers/shelves stop filling up with, let's face it, 65% direct advertising, 30% indirect advertising and 5% readers letters.

    I picked up two boxes of Mr Kipling the other day... of course, I'll need a 2nd pass to be sure... but overall, I think i'm disappointed. I've had 6-for-50p mince pies that had more ZING

    My kichen cupboards are full of mince pies right now, they we're brought back from a do, must be close to 100 of them in tins, wrapped in foil or still in original packaging.
