Appearance– Pale pies with misplaced lids – a bit of a disappointment. The box was very pretty though – holograms and everything!
Mince to Pastry ratio – Low, a little under filled and pastry a tad thick.
Mouthfeel – Crumbly pasty that was a quite dry. Satisfyingly sticky filling with juicy chunks of fruit.
Flavour – Very citrusy, plenty of fruity flavours. Delicious pastry despite the crumbly nature. Added sweetness of sugar on top made me happy.
Summary– Stunning box that gave way to a slightly disappointing first impression of the pies. The pie itself was delicious if a little under filled. Not as good as its boozy cousin, but still a worthwhile purchase if you rate taste over appearance.
Overall Rating – 3.5 Santas
