Appearance – Cheap and nasty! Uneven bake with it being burnt on the outside and undercooked in the middle. You can already see how crumbly it is.

Mince to Pastry ratio – A low score here as you would expect! Large air gap due to limited amount of filling (its not all bad I guess!)

Mouthfeel – Dry pasty, but you are able to take a reason bite without it total imploding. Slightly gloopy filling that leaves a lot to be desired.

Flavour – Huge improvement over last year as it was an almost pleasant flavour. They seem to have chucked some sugar in this year rather than serving up snot in a pastry case!

Summary – A big step up for last year, but that’s not saying much. Certainly not worthy of winning an award – take note Good Housekeeping Institute. I can only assume a bung Sam Allardyce would be proud of is involved in their judging criteria…

Anyway coming back to the trusted source of mine pie reviews… In all honesty there is so much better out there for similar money so its still impossible to recommend it to anyone.

Its slightly better, but still exceedingly shite!

Overall Rating – 0.5 Santas
