We have found the first Mince Pie of the 2006 Season!
In a Sainsbury’s store in Chester, the fist Mince Pie of the season was purchased, and consumed!
Sainsbury’s 6 Deep Mince Pies.
What a relief! It’s been nearly 6 months since Mince Pies were on the shelves.
What is interesting about these pies, is the packaging is quite plain and not festive in any way. A sort of a “all year round” package.
We were unable to to a complete review on these Mince Pies, as they were consumed rather too quickly to be brought before the tasting team. But let’s just say they tasted good 😉
We have received a report from one of the tasting team that Mince Pies are on sale in their local Sainsbury’s store.
While we welcome the re-introduction of Mince Pies, we have to wonder if it’s just a bit early to start preparing for Christmas!
We will investigate further and report back our findings.
