Asda Will Be Selling Giant Mince Pies From Next Week

Little is good, giant must be better!

Mince pies are the ultimate festive treat, so how can you improve on perfection? By making it massive.

The wonderful creation is seven inches in diameter, which is almost three times the size of a normal mince pie. Meaning it will be perfect for slicing up and serving at a Christmas party or eating by yourself with a spoon.

Product developer Ciara Loker said the team had visited several bakeries in London last Christmas, where they spotted a number of large mince pies on offer, which inspired them to create a mince pie designed for sharing.

She said:

“The recipe that we’ve used is the same mincemeat recipe that goes into our Cafe mince pies. We worked closely with the supplier, who already produce large fruit pies for us throughout the year so we’re already well equipped to create something like this for us. It’s a delicious crumbly pastry filled with juicy sultanas, raisins, festive peel and cranberries, finished with a pastry lattice design and sprinkled with icing sugar for a festive finish.”

This year’s range will include Vegan Society approved mince pies and for those who don’t like mince meat (freaks), the team has created a caramel crumble pies.

The sharing mince pie will be available at Asda in-store bakeries from November 22 and are priced at £1.50.
