Have you sampled your first mince pie of the season yet?  Are you a connoisseur of this traditional treat?   

Some of us make our own mincemeat and mince pies, and many of us pop a pack in our basket at our favourite supermarket. Shop bought mince pies can vary so much and when you have discovered the one that hits the spot there is no turning back!

So how discerning are you? If your favourite brand isn’t included in our selection, please leave a comment in the section below and let us know your preferred brand there …
