Duchy Originals Organic Mince Pie

The Review

This is a good looking box, but it loses some quality under close inspection.

6 mince pies made with organic rich all butter shortcrust pastry, filled with a traditional organic mincemeat made from plump vine fruits, apple, sweet almonds, orange & lemon zest, seasonal spicy and brandy

‘This is a difficult pie to review seeing as it doesn’t taste of much, but is still nice! The buttery pastry does mask the flavour of the filling which, although has a hint of alcohol, doesn’t stand out in any way. The filling is crunchy in parts which looses marks. They have strayed from the path, got slightly lost, but found their way in the end. ‘ – Paul

The duchy original pie has a similar apperance as the Walkers pie - but they are made in the same place.

‘I was looking forward to this pie. But like the box, that looks great from afar, it suffers from closer inspection. I think I know why – it is manufactured by Walkers and has a similar taste as their pies, thankfully not so strong so it’s possible to finish to Duchy. The texture of the mince is different from all the other pies I’ve tried. It’s a bit like apple peel, in places, but that’s quite pleasant. Overall I was a little disappointed in this pie, I wanted more from it.’ – Mince Pie Virgin
