Costa Mince Tart

On the first day of December, Costa sold to me,

A mince pie that was vegan and gluten free!

INGREDIENTS- Mincemeat (53%) (Sugar, Apple Puree, Raisins (Raisins, Sunflower Oil), Sultanas (Sultanas, Sunflower Oil), Glucose Syrup, Currants (Currants, Sunflower Oil), Candied Mixed Peel (Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Orange Peel, Sugar, Lemon Peel, Acidity Regulator: E330; Preservative: Sulphur Dioxide), Vegetable Suet (Palm Oil, Rice Flour, Sunflower Oil), Mixed Spice, Acidity Regulator: E260; Cinnamon, Treacle, Orange Oil), Pastry (46%) (Tapioca Starch, Rice Flour, Vegetable Margarine (Palm Oil, Rapeseed Oil, Water, Emulsifier:E471), Sugar, Brown Sugar, Ground Almonds, Water, Salt, Stabiliser: E415), Sugar Dusting (1%) (Dextrose, Cornflour, Palm Oil).


Luckily, Costa make better mince tarts than I write song lyrics.  This was a very satisfying product.  The pastry was crisp.  There was a generous layer of fruit-packed mincemeat.  Usually, gluten free products are a bit puny and small, but this was an 80g beast of a mince tart.  A very good start to the holiday season.
