It’s that time of year again and for some people it’s all about the mince pies, over 220 million were sold last year, but which one is best? We’ve tasted all the big supermarket offerings to find out which one should be on your shopping list.
6 Mince pies, £1
Voted number one in our taste test, there was no doubt, the Morrisons mince pie is the best with the whole panel giving it 5 stars. The soft and buttery cases are filled with sweet and fruity mincemeat and the ratio of pastry to filling is perfect.
Yum, yum, yum, these were delicious, Lovely filling, full of flavour and the pastry was buttery with a sweet dusting of icing sugar.
Strong brandy taste and the pastry was a big let down and just crumbles too quickly.
12 Mince Pies, £1.59
These were a close second, melt in the mouth with a cakey texture, but they could do with a bit more spice.
6 Mince Pies, £1
These were the worst mince pies this year, our panel found them dry and bland, not worth the calories.

6 All Butter Mince Pies, £1.80
Nice and thick pastry but not enough filling and hardly any flavour.
