My local Tesco was doing mince pies last week

I bought some last week. Very (too) sweet and pastry crumbles too easily. Who's do PW members reckon are best (shop bought)?

My local coop had Malteser Reindeers on display the day I went in after getting back off holiday - 23rd August! Their range of Christmas goods was even more comprehensive this morning!

Good Housekeeping reckoned Morrisons, with M+S, then Aldi. I don't like sugar in the shortcrust pastry of a mince pie so I've never found a bought one I like.

Try working in retail! It’s a pain to be fair, we have had Christmas confection, cards, toys, mince pies and such for weeks now, B&M have aisles of decorations etc too. We haven’t even got Halloween and bonfire night out of the way yet! Boxing Day each year we take delivery of Easter stuff! I kid you not! It’s all mad and sales focused. You would be surprised how many folk who shop are dead against how soon the Christmas goods hit the shelves. It’s not right in my book. I think Christmas stock should start around the last week of november! Fireworks 3-5th nov and 30-31st dec. and Easter eggs for no more than 2 week before Easter too! This is the consensus of MANY people who just go in wanting to do a weeks shop. Many folk find no joy in Christmas any longer after losing people close to them. It can be a painful time of year! And animals that suffer from fireworks going off months before bonfire night! We have had them going off here for over a week already!

 

My Scrooge hat is well and truly stuck on my head :lol:

Was in B&M earlier today, a woman had bought 2x large carrier bags of Christmas tat, while I was behind her in the queue wearing shorts and buying suntan lotion 🤣
