Mince pies

Su­per but­tery and crumbly, Aldi Spe­cially Se­lected Shortcrust Pas­try Mince Pies ($4.49/6 pack) are our top pick! With a rich, jammy fill­ing, they’re as close as you can get to home­made without any of the ef­fort. We also love Coles Ginger­bread & Ap­ple Pies ($3.50/6 pack), which are good for when you’re all sul­tana-ed out! For the best flavour, al­ways heat your pies in the oven.


Our win­ner is the Coles Finest Lux­ury Ginger­bread & But­ter­scotch Sponge Pud­ding ($12). A glit­tery gold fin­ish and mor­eish but­ter­scotch sauce makes this the eas­i­est and most im­pres­sive dessert ever. We think it should be sold all year round! For a tra­di­tional fruit pud done per­fectly, we chose Aldi Spe­cially Se­lected Pre­mium Vin­tage Christ­mas Pud­ding ($14.99). Bonus points for its cute cal­ico bag.


In first place and tast­ing like a honey jum­ble is the Coles Honey Elf. It’s per­fect for a lit­tle pre-christ­mas snack. You can get creative by dec­o­rat­ing it your­self, and at just $1 – with 20c go­ing to char­ity – it’s great value. Our run­ner-up is Wool­worths Gi­ant Ginger­bread Iced Cookie ($4). A fun dessert cen­tre­piece with a strong cin­na­mon flavour and crunchy tex­ture, it’ll feed the whole fam­ily.
