Smart Consumer: Put to the test
Published 09/12/2010 | 05:00
It's one of the hardest decisions you'll have to face this Christmas. But you know you'll have to choose.
So what's it to be? Will you have mince pies smothered in brandy butter on December 25, or should you opt for plum pudding? But what about that lovely rich cake?
After all this is the one day of the year when you really don't have to worry about calories, at least until tomorrow . . . So why not treat yourself to a little of everything?
Still you don't want to waste those hard-earned calories on just any old mince pie.
Not to worry, we've done the research for you, and put the supermarket offerings to the test.
It's a hard job, but someone has to do it . . .
The products sampled are mainly from the premium ranges, and although we acknowledged price, we studiously ignored the fat, sugar and calorie content, and let our taste buds do the marking.
We've listed the full price for each item, but keep an eye out for special offers.
