Tis the season and all that. I love christmas…everyone does, but it’s this time of year everyone goes nuts. All the ridiculous decorations go up, the annoying christmas music is piped everywhere, those crap shops that sell tacky christmas stuff turn up and the average shopper on the street turns into crazed must finish my christmas shopping today maniacs. But definately the best thing about christmas is the food, why does all the good stuff hide the rest of the year round? last year I went on the hunt for the ultimate christmas sandwich..any excuse. This year I thought i’d keep to the same theme but mix it up a bit. So it’s on…where can I get the best mince pie?
It’s not even december yet but I couldn’t wait. Straight off to starbucks for my cheeky gingerbread latte…the dark cherry mocha is by far the best. The order was in Â£1.45 for my all butter mince pie. First impression was good, it looked pretty hefty. Nothing particularly exciting about the filling if i’m honest it was pretty deep, I was a bit let down by the top however, too buttery almost like shortbread. Always difficult to get the ball rolling when you have nothing to compare it to.
But i’ll give it a 6 out of 10. Just because it’s pretty pricey and I could get a whole box from my supermarket for that.
