Get In My Belly: 5/10

Have you ever looked at a mince pie and thought, wow this could do with some refurbishing?

Yeah, me neither, but come right this way

UK bakery chain Paul is releasing a mince pie croissant (a mince pie croissant!!!), essentially combining the French pastry with the English Christmas staple. In some way, theyre mixing up Christmas and mornings by creating a somewhat perfect (yet still so, so, imperfect) Christmas morning pastry.

For those not in the know, a mince pie is a small British pie stuffed with mincemeat (dried fruits and spices), and is usually eaten at Christmas time and during the month of December. A croissant, on the other hand, is a buttery French pastry, often eaten for breakfast alongside coffee or juice or whatever pleases your belly in the a.m.

And now, looking to please us with a fusion, Paul is launching this mince pie croissant.

Will it meet the perfect middle between savoury and sweet? Will it make for a hearty breakfast? Will it become the British cronut? Questions on questions on questions.

An official comment from Paul reads, This all-butter croissant filled with rich, sweet mincemeat and dusted with icing sugar is the perfect grab-and-go snack whilst on the move, and makes for the ideal breakfast to wake up to on Christmas morning.
