    Our Consultant gave us all a shock last night.
    She told us that M & S sells mince pies and tiny mini iced Christmas cakes in their coffee house, so it may be tempting to stop and have one of these with your coffee there!
    DON'T - the mince pies are 19 syns each and the tiny, almost bite size cakes 14 syns!
    Really not worth it - so many syns for a few bites!!

    Don't know what they added extra to it... perhaps there is a lot of pastry as well as filling! I am not going to try too find out!

    As I type, I am looking at 7 boxes of minced pies stacked on a table in front of my desk at work. They were a Christmas gift to us planning officers from a local Councillor. I have ignored them for two days, but it is getting harder as I love the suet-ey and pastry good(bad)ness.... I think there is conspiracy against me. :eek:(
