WOOLWORTHS CHRISTMAS FRUIT MINCE PIE (R35.99)
WOOLWORTHS mince pies come in a range of flavours, including pecan fruit, classic fruit and ClemenGold fruit mince pies.
For the chocolate lovers, there is, of course, a decadent chocolate flavour as well.
I loved the simple yet festive packaging, which makes for a very nice gift.
In true Woolies’ fashion, the “delicious shortcrust pastry filled with our exclusive spiced fruit mincemeat, packed with juicy vine fruits and dusted with sugar” is “best served warm”.
The shortcrust pastry has a thick, biscuit-like texture, which you can easily bite through, but doesn’t easily break apart.
I preferred it at room temperature, as warming the mince pie only intensifies its sweetness. I quite enjoyed the flavour combination of the raisins, sultanas and dates. 6/10
