Mince Pie History

Though we’ve been eating a reviewing Mince Pies for many, many years now…. Mince Pies existed before this website, even before the internet… Even before you were born!

We have attempted to gather as much information as we can about Mince Pies through the ages, for you.

Folklore

Folklore states that mince pies are a favourite food of Father Christmas, and that one or two should be left on a plate at the foot of the chimney (along with a small glass of brandy or sherry, and a carrot for the reindeer) as a thank-you for stockings well-filled.
