Never had it, would try it, but doesn't sound like I would like it. However, I *am* a horribly picky eater, so there's that.

My step-niece, each Christmas, devours several hundred mince pies... but only of the iced-topped variety (probably fondant). In fact, there's usually a text message sent to everyone she knows declaring:

"Ive [sic] brought [sic] the first minced [sic] pies of the year!!!!!!!".

Ahem.

Glad to see that the "Yes" people outnumber the "No" people, on the poll smile.gif

We must endeavor to make certain that all members know the truth of real mince pies!

Get the pies ready! I'll round up the stragglers and sit them down with a nice flagon of mulled wine and a fork!

Onward Mince Pie Soldiers! Onward!

I could not vote; there was not an appropriate option. tongue.gif None of them adequately express my disgust for mince pies.


Oh Phyllis I cant understand your distaste
: for the beautiful, wondrous mince pie.
It's tasty, its scrumptious, and gorgeously laced
: with the mincemeat which doth make me sigh!

Perhaps it is time that you had one more try.
: Tuck into a pie... maybe two?!
Make some at home, or head out and buy
: and see if it changes your view.

She would die a little inside. Also, quite relieved you don't know her.

It would be an amazing coincedence, at the very least.

Well, if you keep your mum locked in the cellar, it's no wonder her mince pies aren't that fab...

Harsh, but fair.

Hmm... haven't had a mince pie for about a week now. I better get on that!

Apparently, Sainsbury's are doing a mince pie flavoured ice cream. I also got a booklet from them that has a recipe for making Christmas pudding blondies with leftover Christmas pudding.

I'm going to try them. They look edible. We shall see!

We had some in work today from M&S that had Mitsi's on the top. Apparently M&S are drug-dealing on the side.
