Deck the halls with boughs of holly! The mince pies have arrived!

By johnboy - 26 August 2013 9

mince pies

This in from Deborah:

Just as we rejoice the first sightings of hot cross buns (usually on new Years Eve) let us rejoice again at the sight of that Christmas speciality ‘Mince Pies’ on sale (and on special!) in August!

My fb amigos saw the first of the festive seasons mince pies in June. I think we are quickly moving to a year round easter egg/mince pie supply/demand market.

This is about retailer wanting to extend the selling opportunities. Have I ever thought in August..’damn I could go for a mince pie right now?’ No.

Wrong on many levels.

Crush up a packet of fruit mince pies in a bowl. Drizzle liberally with rum and let it soak in.

Soften a litre bucket of premium ice cream. Stir through mince pies. Refreeze.

Eat the entire bucket in one sitting.

Take the hint; Go Xmas shopping this weekend! Then come December you’ll be sitting back sipping eggnog while your friends & family contemplate gun-ownership as they navigate the throngs of thongs in Belco Mall.

NB: niftydog’s comments are intended to be humorous – he does not endorse the sipping of eggnog.

Mince pies? Fine. Xmas packaging? Less so.
