M&S Top Iced Mince Pies

The Review


6 Top Iced Mince Pies. Butter rich shortcrust pastry  filled with a rich, fruity mincemeat, topped with fondant icing & dusted with sugar

‘This isn’t right! M&S mince meat is delicious but I couldn’t taste it due to the over-powering sugar flavour of the icing. With 5 other varieties in the M&S range why is there a need for this? I like sweet things but this is too much, I can still feel the sugar eating in to the roof of my mouth. Perhaps it would be more paletteable if there was less icing on top but there is almost the same amount of icing as there is mince meat. This is wrong, wrong, wrong, a big let down for an excellent range. ‘ – Paul

‘I only finished this pie for the team. My first taste was that of toothpaste and soap, the fondant was too gooey and far to sweet. I did used to have a bit of a sweet tooth but this is the pie equivalent of syrup on a dime bar. I am having stomach seizures as a result of this puke filled farm trough of a mince pie. I am now suffering war like flashbacks of my first bite. For those who value their teeth beware this pie.’ – Adam

‘Quite sickly and the icing is an odd texture, too gooey.’ – Su

‘Who’s idea was this? I think a sugar crusted topping on a mince pie is great, but a molten layer of creamy sugar is not; it’s far too sweet. The through of a mine pie with a white lid is appealing – a snowy pie, but sadly this pie just doesn’t have that magical look I was hoping for. The mince too is disturbingly glossy, like jellied dog food in fact. It’s usual good taste overwhelmed by icing. Some reviewers stated this are good beginner pies for young children – they are not – save their teeth. A very disappointing performance from a pie we though could offer so much.’ – Mince Pie Virgin

‘I was anticipating hard icing, like a mini bakewell tart, but it turned out to be toothpaste consistency and very sweet. Not my cup of tea, but probably will find favour with old ladies and little children.’ – Marco

‘YOUNG mince pie novice – what a great place to start. I’m not a particularly avid mince pie fan so in my opinion the less mince meat the better and if that lack of mince meat has to be replaced with viscous icing then I have no objection. With one bite into the pie the icing cascades inwards. I can understand why these would not be for everyone as the ‘taste of Christmas’ is overpowered by pure sugar hit. I’m waiting for the shakes to kick in.’ -Ash
