Yes YABU cause their nasty things grin

You are being unreasonable I am afraid.

It is still September.

But check when they are best before as you wouldn't want to miss eating them at their best.

Well the date on them says BBE Oct 30th so i will refrain for a couple of weeks i think.

I am with LBAM. They are the work of the devil. What on earth are they doing being sold so early, it's ages until christmas.

Ge thee to the Christmas topic. Begone!

lilmissmummy Tue 29-Sep-09 12:54:29

Now I want one!! Eat them all quick before they escape!

If it makes you feel better we had pancakes last week and it is ages until Shrove Tuesday

YANBU - I used to stockpile christmas puds so I could have them all year round grin

Might make one this year as I'm pregnant and need a nut and alcohol free one...

kreecherlivesupstairs Tue 29-Sep-09 12:55:32

Yes but lilmissmummy, pancakes are acceptable at any time. Mince pies are just wrong on so many levels.

MrMorocco Tue 29-Sep-09 12:56:27

YABU. You'll be sick of them by November and then you won't be able to enjoy them at Christmas.

lilmissmummy Tue 29-Sep-09 13:05:37

The pancakes were good! I do love a mince pie or 10 though mmmm grin

pooexplosions Tue 29-Sep-09 13:22:19

Why do you need a nut and alcohol free mince pie cos of pregnancy?

YABU, the thought of mince pies is a)making me feel sick and b) making me think of xmas, which actually brings me back to a).

But if you ordered them you must have decided already, no? wink

Undercovamutha Tue 29-Sep-09 13:25:53

YANBU - I would eat them in July if I could!
