CHECKERS BLUEBERRY MINCE PIE (R49.99)
The most important thing in a mince pie is its pastry. It’s what keeps everything together and so, when the pastry is terrible, it just spoils the whole experience.
This particular pastry was very soggy and stuck to my teeth. The only saving grace was that it wasn’t sweet, because there was no dusted sugar.
I was excited to taste the filling of blueberries, which makes it appropriate for a summer Christmas pie. The filling was not sickeningly sweet, which was a major relief.
If it weren’t for the pastry, then it would be really amazing. Extra points for the gourmet look and the packaging. 6.5/10
