We blind-tasted Marks & Spencer mince pies, and here's what went down
There can only be one winner…
Christmas is not complete without a mince pie (or 20). Here in the What’s On office, we take our mince pies very seriously – so much so that we decided to host a mince pie blind tasting, pitting Marks & Spencer Mince Pies against a miscellaneous mince pie.
Here’s what went down when we blind-tasted mince pies for Christmas…
Marks & Spencer has a huge range of mince pies available, including vegan-friendly Plant-Based Mince Pies (4-pack, Dhs29), Gluten-Free Mince Pies (4-pack, Dhs29), Lattice-Topped Mince Pies (6-pack, Dhs19), Puff Pastry Mince Pies (6-pack, Dhs25), and Iced Topped Mince Pies (6-pack, Dhs25), for those who enjoy an extra hit of sweetness.
