Thought I was supersmart buying loads of the nice mini Aldi mince pies in advance for our Christmas party tomorrow. Just looked though and they went out of date three weeks ago!! (just after I bought them).

They look fine to me. Surely they're full of preservatives and I won't kill anyone.. Will I?! shock grin grin

Please reassure (or talk sense into) me..

They'll be fine (or a bit stale). Have you tried one?

I would - there's no meat in them and as you say they're stuffed with preservative.

If they smell very weird I'd bin though. Also if there's anything green and fluffy growing on the pastry cases... fgrin

Warm them up a bit to revive them, and offer cream.

I'd try one myself for experimental purposes! grin

I would try one but I've just eaten six mini stollen bites, bit full grin
Will try in the morning..

I've just finished a box dated 20.11.15 and I'm still alive. Thought I was being clever too grin
