Aldi Has Brought Out Gin Flavoured Mince Pies And We Need Them

I don't know about you, but I love a good mince pie over Christmas. Forget the Coca Cola truck, the festivity begins for me the minute I take my first bite.

But there's only one other thing I love more than a good mince pie, and that's gin. So imagine my complete and utter joy when I found out that Aldi had just brought out a mixture of my two fave things. Yep folks, that's right, gin flavoured mince pies. I'll let you absorb that information for just a second.

I don't think I've been this more excited for a product than the day I first discovered there was 'hangover-free' Prosecco. 2017 may have brought us some of the weirdest crazes yet (I'm looking at you, squiggle brows), but boy has it hit the nail on the head with some of its other creations.

A pack of six will cost £2.29, and they're launching in stores on 14 November, just in time to start stock-piling for Christmas day so you can impress all your family with the finest 'tarts' in all the land.

I'm not the only one excited about mince pies, however, as Holly Willoughby shocked her followers the other day by posting an Instagram picture of her eating the beautiful treats. She captioned the picture "So this just happened. Too soon?", and caused a bit of a debate among fans, but I agree with Hols tbf. Mince pies are for life, not just for Christmas.

So this just happened... too soon?

What do you think, is it too soon to start getting the mince pies out? Or should Aldi be releasing the alcoholic goodies a lot earlier than the 13th November?
