Do you want to eat a mince pie, but don't like mince pies? Well, you're weird, but Mr. Kipling has brought out these Winter Whirls, which are like your regular Vienesse Whirls, but with a mince pie flavour filling. To be honest, it sounds like a very strange idea. If you want to eat mince pies, Mr. Kipling offer several different varieties, why would you want a mince pie flavoured whirl?
Well, I guess because they're nice, that's why. It's the same massively crumbly pastry you get in your regular Vienesse Whirls, and while the filling lacks the token chunkiness of regular mincemeat, it certainly tastes like a mince pie. The buttercream adds to the overall flavour as well. It probably would have been good to add a hint of brandy flavour to it, but it does make for a nice, creamy, crumbly mine pie treat. These don't give the full mince pie experience, but they're a nice alternative. Not as good as the originals, but they're certainly worth a go.
My rating: 4/5
