Iceland's Christmas winners:
Store's 25p mince pies beat Harrods' in taste test...AND it has the top Turkey too
Juicy, tasty and only 25p each, Iceland's mince pies have beaten the best that the likes of Harrods and Selfridges can offer in a blind taste tests from The Good House Keeping Institute.
At £1.50 for a pack of six, they beat the rest of the high street, including the Harrods Classic Mince Pies with Brandy. The judges praised the Iceland pies for having 'juicy mincemeat with a rich flavour in a lovely crisp and buttery pastry case'.
Iceland also won the Christmas dinner category with its Luxury British Whole Brined Turkey with Orange & Thyme Butter, at £4.95 per kg. That is £19.80 for a 4kg bird.
Its stuffing offering 'Luxury Outdoor Bred Pork, Honey and Rosemary Parcels', at £3 for 300g – also beat the best of the rest.
And Iceland's Luxury 12-month Matured Christmas Pudding was runner up in its category, beating many other puddings from more upmarket retailers.
Consumer director at Good Housekeeping, Caroline Bloor, said: 'Our expert team and panel of consumer testers blind test an incredibly wide range of Christmas products, so we can be very confident that these results shine a light on the food and drink that tastes the best.
'Everyone loves a bargain and so it's good to see Iceland mince pies and Lidl prosecco beating more expensive upmarket brands.'
