Waitrose are, once again, selling mice pies under the ‘Heston’ brand. Apparently, this is something to do with a celebrity chef and has nothing to do with Ben Hur.
Anyway, they’re rather good, as you can see from the emptiness of the packet.
However, I couldn’t help feeling that since they were mince pies, and in particular ‘Night Before Christmas Mince Pies’, the label ‘Best before 14th January’ might be somewhat superfluous?
It took me a couple of readings to understand 6 “Night Before Christmas” Mince Pies, because 6 Nights Before Christmas Mince Pies are completely different.
Is that the Tim Green? Fellow sufferer of yellow and blue tie?
I always used to pick up a box of Heston mince pies just after getting on the west bound M4 after Chiswick. The packaging has certainly improved!
At least that best before occurs after Christmas. I have observed fully festively packaged mince pies when I went back to Uni in September one year… they were out of date by halloween.
“Waitrose are, once again, selling mice pies” – ooee!
