Lyons Deep Filled Mince Pies

The Review

18 deep filled mince pies, made with the finest fruits (catering pack)

‘The heavy, catering pack, utilitarian branding and crash-proof, internal packaging make this the ideal pie to airdrop to troops in Afghanistan. However, the filling belies the industrial image, which is less sugary than you would expect and far superior to many other mass-market pies. Pastry base is a little flimsy though – paratroops would need something more substantial. Tasty, likeable and unassuming.’ – Marco

‘Very average taste and manufacturered look… the pastry was very soft, as though they were stale and the filling was very jammy rather than meaty.’ – Su

‘It does what it says on the pack, there are 18 of them, they are deep filled and they taste cheap. These soft mince pies contain non-food like flavours which I can’t put my finger on, a soapy sponge dipped in brown sauce flavoured jam comes to mind.’ – Paul

‘The packaging suggests that these are used for the masses. The subtle ‘Catering Pack’ sign gave me the clue that these would cut corners in the taste and look department. They were very sweet and crammed with a brown jammy texture. The flavour of these ‘pies’ was of a soggy Weetabix with a soft pastry.’ – Adam
