12 Pies of Christmas re-visited! - Pieday Friday - 12th December 2014
It's Friday! It's Pieday!
The 12 Pies of Christmas - re-visited!
It’s hard to believe that it’s almost a year since our '12 Pies of Christmas' music video was launched! Sure, it may be an overly repetitive song and the budget for the video was not exactly breaking into the millions, but it was good fun to make and – let’s face it – a great excuse to eat lots of festive pies! Check out the 78 pies that feature in this music video here or click here to read the reviews of all 12 pies – 4 turkey and 8 mince pies! There are a few “Highly Recommended” in there too!
Pie Tweet of the Week!
Following our rating of the Marks and Spencer Gluten Free Mince Pies last week, Marks and Spencer were very flattered by Pierateer ALE's comments:
@pierateers 'The best shop bought pie you've ever tasted'? Aww, pierateers you've made our day :)

Avoid mince pies at Christmas?! Jog on!!!
There's always someone there to bring the mood down at Christmas, isn't there! Call them the Grinch or whatever else, but a top nutritionist in the Daily Mail has advised missing out on Mince Pies this Christmas because they have worked out it takes on average a 45 minute jog to burn off the calories in each and every Mince Pie! You won't be sur-pie-sed to find we're ignoring this advice - instead reminding ourselves of how Pierateer SJL lost weight over British Pie Week on a pie-focused diet!
Football Pies back under the spot light
The Pierateers have rated pies in grounds up and down the country - even appearing on the BBC to offer our pie advice! - and are looking to expand the number of pies in their Pieremiership table! But in amongst all this, they also keep their eyes on the pies for significant summer transfers, which includes changing pie suppliers at our country’s football clubs.
One such club who have made a substitution this summer are Wycombe Wanderers, who you may already know are the local club of the Pierateers following the Morecambe pie visit earlier this year. We rated their Peter's Pies at the ground in January and this Saturday we’re going to be rating the new offering at Adam’s Park – made by Phat Pasty Co. – as Wycombe Wanderers take on Southend United.
Will they hit the back of the net?! Here’s hoping for a better result than when we tried the pies at Portsmouth earlier this season!
