Village Bakery Organic Mince Pies

The Review


6 organic mince pies, luxurious all-butter pastry, deep-filled with a deliciously fruity mincemeat and crowned with a light sugar dusting

‘A lot better than expected and so much better than their gluten version. Lots of mince meat, wholemeal pastry which was surprisingly nice!’ – Su

‘The greatest come back in mince pie history. From the company that gave us the Organic, gluten free, cardboard tasting pie comes this, a surprising pie which looks good and tastes better. It has a home-made look about it and good colour to the pastry without being artificial. Some of the pies in the pack were so full of mince meat they were literally bursting! If you are tempted to buy these be very careful that you don’t get the gluten free 4 pack by mistake.’ – Adam

‘What a difference from the cardboard tasting grey offerings previously reviewed
from the same manufacturer. Good weight, almost ‘homemade’ taste and sugar dusted lid adds to experience. I liked them.’ – Piet

‘This came as a pleasant surprise to me, the Village Bakery have made a very good pie here. After the horrific tasting gluten free version – which I was too scared to try after fellow reviewers reactions – I was apprehensive, but wrongly so. This pie has one of the nicest pasties I’ve tried, I enjoyed the taste and texture and there was no pastry overload to suffer. The mince too is very good and the sugared top offers a little sweetness and texture to the overall experience. The box has a sophisticated feel which is much better than the gluten free variety with a large, detailed photo down one edge which looks great in our stack of boxes. The pie too looks good; darker than most, it has a more home made feel to it. Well done to the Village Bakery for crafting such a fine pie, it’s just a shame that people who need gluten/wheat/dairy free mince pies have to suffer with it’s much poorer sibling – I pity you.’ – Mince Pie Virgin

‘The packaging oozed quality, as indeed did my pie (literally spilling out of its hat – is that the correct technical term for the top of the pie?). The pie was obviously well packed with a moist & delicious mince, providing a good foil to the generously thick crust. The only downside was the amount of sugar that decorated the pie, making the overall taste unnecessarily sweet.’ – Chris

‘I was expecting a mince pie disaster. The previous incarnation of the village bakery was like being hit by a disgusting taste spade. This organic luxurious mincer however was not one but five steps up on the previous model. It had a great size and weight with a healthy glow about it. When opened, the pie was a tad hollow but considering the size it still had plenty of filling. The pastry had a nice homemade taste which complemented the overall flavour.’ – Adam

    Hi, I really enjoyed these pies too. They look and taste almost like they are home made!!! I’m pleased I got these and not the ‘taste free’, gluten free ones though!!!
