It’s difficult to leave out some of the best pies which regularly float to the top of our annual survey, but to make room this year, I had to. And I had to look too at pies that were lower priced, so while included are not necessarily one of the top eight pies on the market. We also cannot tested every pie, but do our best to get to all brands at some stage in a few years.
Our team of tasters – all six of them – had slightly varying views of those down the list, but all agreed on the top one this year – Beechwood Farm. Congrats to them on a superb pie. Second was an expensive one, loved by all for its pastry and plump fruit. Read more here: mince pies from the Irish Examiner page attached. Happy Christmas!
