Lovemore Free From Mince Pies

The Review

4 wheat, gluten & milk free brandy mince pies. Shortcrust pastry with deep fill brandy mincemeat.

‘Surprisingly nice considering the lack of wheat, diary and gluten. I am impressed that the makers managed to gain any Christmas taste from what ingredients they had remaining. The look of the pie seemed a little strange, it appeared to have a sunburn. This appeared to be coated glaze of something. Whether this was because the missing ingredients provide the cooked colour or they felt they needed a look closer to their box graphic. All in all it was of palatable quality and a good product for allergy suffers.’ – Adam

‘These pies are gluten free, wheat free and milk free but at 75 pence per pie far from free. The pies did look as if some yellow colouring had been added to mask the greyness of the pastry, even on the inside they looked more like marzipan. This isn’t a big issue if eating them in the dim light of a Christmas afternoon but the fact that they fall apart very easily could make it a messy business.’ – Paul

‘Appearance was a little fake looking as I think they had been tangoed with food colouring! But considering they are wheat free, gluten free, milk free, yummy free, they weren’t great but they weren’t bad either.’ – Su

‘Looks like a standard mince pie but pastry has a slightly floury texture and the mince meat has an unusual, lemony aftertaste. Not my favourite.’ – Marco
