Aldi’s fruit mince tart tops Christmas taste test

December 10, 2020 Food & Beverage No Comments

CHOICE has reviewed 26 fruit mince pies and tarts from brands including Aldi, Bakers Delight, Coles, Walkers, Woolworths and more to find out which ones to feast on this Christmas. “We blind taste tested 26 fruit mince pie and tart products that are available in major supermarkets and leading bakeries,” says Rachel Clemons, CHOICE food expert.

“There are so many flavourful options this year. There were some interesting ones such as ‘blood orange and fig’, ‘spiced orange and cranberry’ or our top scorer ‘sloe gin’.”

Aldi’s Specially Selected Sloe Gin Fruit Mince Tarts took first place with a CHOICE expert rating of 83%.

“Aldi’s Sloe Gin Fruit Mince Tarts were the tastiest pick by our judges with a CHOICE Expert Score of 83%. It stood out for our judges with its light, crisp, buttery melt-in-mouth pastry and premium feel,” says Rachel.

Expert judges independently blind taste tested all fruit mince pie and tart products, scoring a range of criteria such as:

  • Visual appeal
  • Aroma
  • Flavour
  • Mouthfeel
  • Eatability
  • Pastry to filling ratio

“Our judges looked at a range of criteria such as visual appeal, aroma, and flavour. To our surprise, the top 6 all come from major supermarkets,” says Rachel.

Coles Gluten Free Fruit Mince Pies received a CHOICE expert rating of 77%.

“Another product that stood out for us was Coles Gluten Free Fruit Mince Pies which scored 77% in our test. That’s higher than most other pies. If you’re coeliac or have an intolerance to gluten, you really don’t have to miss out on these tasty Christmas treats.”

The cheapest fruit mince pies are from Aldi, Coles and Woolworths.

“The cheapest pies in our test were only $0.25 per pie and all scored over 70% in our test. Woolworths Gold Gin Infused Pear & Riberry Fruit mince Tarts were the most expensive at $1.50 per pie. That’s six times the price of the cheapest options, but it’s among the top rating” says Rachel.
