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…
Its slightly better, but still exceedingly shite!
Overall Rating – 0.5 Santas
