We like this Pie, it’s a little unusual in it’s strong fruity taste, but it’s rather nice. Can we get another one please?
It might be the most wonderful time of the year, but Christmas can also cause plenty of controversy. Alongside the indisputably awesome essentials of presents, alcohol and turkey, the celebration is stuffed full of seasonal “treats” that many people would sooner spit in Santa’s face than eat. Perhaps the most contentious of these is the mince pie.
There’s something we’re very excited to try – Asda’s gin-infused mince pies.
If you’re not a fan of a traditional mince pie, or you love them but fancy trying your favorite festive snack with a twist, these mouthfuls of merriment are filled with spiced vine fruit and a splash of sloe gin, encased in an all-butter pastry, topped with a sweet sugar dusting.
There’s still be four months to go until Santa pops down the chimney but supermarkets are already stocking up on seasonal snacks, including the classic mince pie.
Shoppers were left surprised after discovering packs of mince pies have already hit the shelves at Asda.
The supermarket’s bosses say they are a “firm favourite” among customers .
