You do know, don't you, that one of the terms of the Brexit agreement is that when we leave, we will no longer be allowed to call them mince pies due to their lack of mince. Bet you didn't know that was what we were voting for back in 2016.

But, surely, they're full of mince?
It's just, obviously, fruit and not meat.
If not, what is in them.

Things change... originally it was meat mixed with fruit and spices. Not sure when the meat bit was dropped, or why. Maybe poor people could only afford the fruit and spices...

2 monthsโ€™ on guys.

How many have you left?

i have 5 still in the freezer. Will not last long though!
Boxes or pies? I have 40 pies left ๐Ÿ‘. I've been trying to ration myself plus it also took a while to get through a Christmas cake both at home and also work. The cakes have both gone now so I'm able to fully concentrate on the remaining pies ๐Ÿ˜‚

Have you got a spy camera in my house ๐Ÿ˜ฑ? Ruby port and also tawny port, standard wensleydale and also rum and ginger wensleydale (we were in Hawes just a few weeks ago and filled up), Christmas cake and mince pies. You may have the sun and retirement but I'm living the dream right now ๐Ÿ˜†

I've actually only just discovered the joy's of tawny port ๐Ÿ˜. Definitely the future.
