Co-op Irresistible Luxury Mince Pies

The Review

This is not a very attractive box, but does it contain treasure?

6 luxury all butter mince pies. Mince pies made with all butter pastry, filled with mincemeat, apple, brandy, almonds and glacé cherries.

‘Not a bad mince pie if you don’t mind stodgy pastry. I’m not sure if we just got a bad pack, perhaps this batch were all slightly undercooked.’ – Paul

‘Ambitiously billed as ‘Truly irresistible, luxury, all butter mice pies’, this pie sets the bar high – and clears it: delicious pastry, nuts and a sweet, boozy taste. Coop proves they can do luxury as well as stamps. Brilliant.’ – Marco

‘I think the word ‘luxury’ on this box was a typo, it shouldn’t be there, the pastry was soft and soggy, and the mince full of hard bits. It’s a pity as the holly motif that adorns the richly coloured lid hinted at something better. After co-op’s delicious mini mince pies I was expecting a lot more from these bigger siblings. A let down.’ – Mince Pie Virgin
