ASDA All Year Mince Pies

The Review

Asda All Year Mince Pies

Six Mince Pies. Golden shortcrust pastry with a sweet mincemeat filling, lightly dusted with sugar. Delicious served with a warm dollop of thick cream

‘This was a difficult pie to review being the 1st June and one of the hottest days of the year. The first taste was one of joy after many pieless months. A just above average pie, that is perhaps a little soft, that’s been stripped of anything festive and is sold as Asda’s all-year-round mince pie. A good option to see pie fans going through the non-festive season.’ – Paul

A summer pie!

‘Summer, a time for ice cream, cold drinks and sun burn, not mince pies. Lucky for us the great giant of Asda has stood up to festive routine and said “We want summer mince pies”. They got what they wanted, on Monday 1st June 2009 our colleague Paul unveiled the Summer Pie. My first impression was shock then awe  then shock and then acceptance. Tasting the strange pie I was greeted with seasonal taste of mince. A Haileys comet of flavour. Unfortunately it wasn’t the best of pies, good amount of filling, average taste, but a little soggy. Maybe its the weather but I think the classic pie belongs to December.’ – Adam

‘Lo and behold, it’s another mince pie… in June!? (where is my interrobang key?). Picked up by Mince Pie Paul on a recent trip to the mainland they were an unexpected surprise in the office this Monday morning. I couldn’t actually remember if I liked mince pies or not so was a little nervous, and the memories of crunchy Weavels filled my every thought. Thankfully these pies are a near Weavel free zone – the mince was moist and almost totally free of funny crunch bits. The pastry was pretty good too and the box has a polka-dot summer feel, but none of these points can elevate it from a middle of the road ranking. The box also says to eat it warm with cream – ice cream is a much better bet during these hot summer days. My personal opinion, save the pies for winter.’ – Mince Pie Virgin Whore
