I bought these for my fiancé who doesn’t like mince pies. He liked them and so did I.
Fortunate, delicious mistake
Picked these up in store by mistaking them for regular mince pies and so glad of my mistake. Absolutely delicious slightly warmed in microwave and then adding a dash of cold single cream.
I was so pleased to discover these on the shelf, I love rhubarb and ginger and these are absolutely delicious, hot or cold. The pastry is not too heavy or overly sweet and the filling is just right. So nice to have an alternative to the traditional mince pies, which I do like, but not to excess. Please can we have these all year round ??
Oh dear ......
What a disappointment! Last year these were really very good - tart with rhubarb and tangy with ginger .. an excellent alternative to traditional mince pies. Unforgivablely, they have been 'dumbed down' to little more than an over-sweet jammy filling with rarely a hint of ginger. Certainly no longer worthy of the description 'Luxury', and definitely not worth the price. I have just removed the several boxes I was looking forward to sharing with friends and family, from my Christmas and New Years orders.
Wonderful concept...total fail.
The pastry was soggy and the rhubarb was a blob of tasteless puree. All the excitement at finding these little pies vanished at the first bite. I won't be buying them again and I wouldn't recommend them to anyone.
Very disappointing. Very little taste of ginger, i
Very disappointing. Very little taste of ginger, in fact very little taste at all.
Disappointing, not much flavour, can't taste the rhubarb or ginger. I have given it one star because the pastry was nice and buttery.
This is not a mince pie.
Why have Tesco called these rhubarb and ginger mince pies? As a rhubarb and ginger pie, they are very nice. As a mince pie they do not fall under the definition of a mince pie at all and taste nothing like a mince pie.
stick to what you know
I dont think I have ever not finished a pie before. I had to throw the one I was eating away and the rest have just been sitting there. The actually pie itself has no flavour. Do yourself a favour and get the regular mince pies.
Delicious and Tasty Alternative To Mince Pies
I am so pleased they are back in again! I've been looking out for them after trying them last year - but they were around for such a short space of time and then out of stock and then gone... Delicious little mouthfulness of rhubarb, sweet, warming with just that edge of tartness, and buttery pastry. Welcome back! I hope they are available for quite a lot longer this year than last.
