Snell from our Accounts Department has been buying the pies for a number of years to spread a bit of festive fun amongst the staff in the lead up to Christmas.
Ryan's Director Tim Larke says's my favourite time of the year, the first one is always a treat however good or not.
Our Ryan's tasters have been sampling mince pies from all the major supermarkets, plus some iconic stores including Fortnum & Mason, munching their way through a total of 14 different brands over the last few weeks.
Last year Waitrose All Butter Mince Pies reigned supreme but this year they couldn't hold on to the top spot as the winning pie selected by our taste team is Sainsbury's All Butter Mince Pies. In third place was M&S Classic and second place went to Iceland's mince pies.
I'm sure the pie tasters are now looking forward to a break from the popular festive treat!
