Sainsburys are up next. I'm going to say it from the start, its not going to be a pleasing mince pie review. Sainsburys have done it again...

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.

Next up we have Tesco's finest*. It hasn't always been the finest in the strict definition of the word - I've always wondered where the asterisk next to the finest links to... but I digress. Lets see where this years' entry fit in.

We're back and we thought to kick off this year's mince pie reviews with one we haven't reviewed for a couple of years. Mr Kipling; almost a British institution in itself, we're wondering whether they've kept up with the times.

Ok, so the last review set a new low for the blog and to be honest, I felt a little guilty, so I'm giving Asda another chance, but with their Extra Special range. I have actually reviewed these before, but not under the new scoring system (see the old review here). Lets see how these do...
After reviewing the leader board in search of other brands' mince pies I noticed that we're missing Asda! Now, we have reviewed Asda mince pies before (using the previous scoring system), and we had a guest reviewer who really didn't mince their words when reviewing. Its my turn now.

Now this is a treat. I was queuing at my local petrol garage to pay for my fuel oblivious to the fact that I was standing in a Spar. I just to happen to glance to my right and saw these. 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.
