Do you like to have Christmas planned months in advance? Or are you the last-minute type, panic-buying presents on Christmas Eve? Whatever your personality, we’ve got a mince pie to match. Let us know which one you think you are on Twitter @coopuk or Facebook.
The Classic One
Your dream Christmas involves a combination of cosy jumpers, a mug of mulled wine and a festive film — or all three, with bonus points for a roaring fire.
Try: Co-op Mince Pies, with a dollop of brandy butter for a classic Christmas treat.
The Messy One
The floor’s covered in wrapping paper, the sprouts are burnt and you’ve got tinsel in your hair. But who cares, it’s Christmas!
Try: Co-op Deep Filled Mince Pies, with a generous filling of spiced mincemeat which you definitely won’t spill down your Christmas jumper…
The Alternative One
You like to shake things up and stray from tradition. Roast turkey every year? No way.
Try: Co-op Irresistible Winter Eves Pudding Pies, for an alternative to mince pies made from baked apple in buttery pastry tarts.
The Vegan One
Being vegan at Christmas used to mean a plate of veg and potatoes, with not much to get excited about. Luckily now there are plenty of delicious options to try. Time for your first mince pie of the season?
Try: Co-op Vegan Mince Pie, which has a rich, 100% plant-based pastry.
The Sociable One
For social butterflies like you, Christmas is all about togetherness. You’ll need plenty of snacks to keep everyone happy at those endless festive parties.
Try: Co-op Mini Mince Pies, to share the mince pie love with everyone.
The Luxurious One
Christmas is a very special occasion in your house, and you love to go all out with a luxury spread. Think laden cheeseboards, lots of fizz, and of course, fancy mince pies.
Try: Co-op Irresistible luxury mince pies – they’re extra-buttery, and ideal for savouring slowly.
The Flaky One
You love Christmas. You love it so much that you’ve accepted invitations to several Christmas parties. In fact, your calendar is looking a little too full… Probably best to stay in and tuck into a mince pie instead.
Try: Co-op Puff Pastry Mince Pies, for a change from classic shortcrust pastry.
The Gluten Free One
You get FOMO (fear of missing out) at the best of times, but even more so at Christmas. You want to visit Santa, go ice skating and carolling all in one day.
Try: Co-op Free From Mince Pies – you won’t be missing out with this treat. So tasty you wouldn’t know that it wasn’t our classic Co-op Mince Pie! Just the thing if you have an allergy or intolerance. They’re dairy free too, making them suitable for vegans too.
