...mince pie mayhem
Time spent reflecting is never wasted. In today's hectic society, we all too often move on to what's next before truly understanding what we have experienced.
Borne of this desire to pause and rate, Pie Club was founded in 1999, as our nation waited for the Millennium Bug to tip us into oblivion.
Hopefully, the grounded calmness of mince pie tasting did something to mollify those fearing Prince's doom laden pop prophecy.
Throughout this Century, Pie Club has been a force for truth, even after truth itself gave up. Whether our musings are comprehensive reviews or knockout ties, you will feel our seasonal veracity in every syllable, and can trust our final verdict on the best mince pie to offer friends and family this Christmas.
It is important to test mince pies each year because of what we term the 'Pie Vacuum'. Pork pies and steak puddings are a constant presence in our lives, but we wave a tearful goodbye to our mincemeat versions almost as soon as we take back our unwanted gifts/pets.
Much can happen during the Pie Vacuum, and we appear each November, to update the pressured pie buyer on the new state of play.
This site launched back in 2007, before the dark times of austerity and the emergence of a nihilistic electorate. Now 'popular' worldwide, what was once a self-help group for a clutch of crust worshippers and their beleaguered friends, has become a twinkling beacon of festive verity - for the benefit of all in search of that precious, perfect, fruity nibble.
Will you let us show you the way? Have you the stomach for a fight? Are you on your lunch hour? Good.
This is Pie Club.
All the best.
