Okay, so Tesco's finest annoyed me, so I've turned to one that I would call a "safe bet". M&S' Christmas All Butter Mince Pies. However, I haven't reviewed an M&S mince pie since 2013. Lets see if they are still a solid entry.

Without any hesitation at all, I picked these up immediately and paid for them. Lets see how these do amongst the rest on the leaderboard.
