Products

We taste tested 26 fruit mince pie products that are available in major supermarket chains and the leading national bakery chain. Price is based on the price paid in Sydney stores (not on special) in November 2020. 

Tasting

Our experts tasted the fruit mince pie samples 'blind' (without knowing the brands) in a randomised order, which was different for each expert.

Scores

Experts independently judged all fruit mince pie products, scoring a range of criteria for each sample, as follows:

  • Visual appeal (points out of 20)
  • Aroma (points out 15)
  • Flavour (points out of 20)
  • Mouthfeel (points out of 15)
  • Eatability (points out of 15)
  • Pastry to filling ratio (points out of 15).

The CHOICE Expert Rating is the resulting points total (out of 100). We recommend fruit mince pies with a CHOICE Expert Rating of 80% or more.
