CHECK­ERS BLUE­BERRY MINCE PIE (R49.99)

The Star Early Edition - - LIFE -

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
