You know Christmas is coming when you sample your first mince pie of the season! Are you a connoisseur of this traditional treat?   

Some of us make our own mincemeat, and mince pies, and many of us pop a pack in our basket at our favourite supermarket. Shop bought mince pies can vary so much and when you have discovered the one that hits the spot there is no turning back!

So how discerning are you? If your favourite brand isn’t included in our selection, please leave a comment in the section below and let us know your preferred brand there …

Lidl's Snowy Lodge Luxury Mince Pies are scrumptious. I had trouble getting them last year, so I've bought them already this year to make sure I don't miss out!

This is not a difficult one.

My wife Kathryn's butter pastry, over stuffed with mincemeat, and baked to a golden brown. Then, just a little sugar sprinkled on top.

She is quite ill now, but rises to the challenge of mince pies, Christmas Pud and a cake. But it now takes a couple of weeks to do it all, when once she would have done it in less than a day.
