Did you know that the original mince pies (going back a few hundred years) where actually a traditional baked pie with meat, but with bits of fruit added? We now omit the meat and also the construction of the pie crust!

A mince spy (Metro)

Santa: Doctor, I’ve got a mince pie stuck up my bottom.
Doctor: Don’t worry, I’ve got some cream for that.

Glad I am not the only person who dislikes mince pies!

When I was at school, I remember teacher telling me they originally were a special treat for the oldies who had lost their teeth. So meat was minced to accommodate their inability to chew.

Sounded like a good idea. Very inclusive.

Now, they are a pie with a sticky sugary filling. Just to hasten the process of losing your teeth.
