The pasty was purchased on 15 Sept. 2012 and proved to be a jolly good one, we are more than happy to report. After re-warming, the vegetables and the apple were still nicely crisp to the bite and the minced beef was also very good- it tasted every bit as good as mine. If you get an opportunity to try this old, truly traditional Tin Miner Pasty - you really must! Also, at just £1.39, it is very good value. Of course, the wife had hers proper but I had to eat mine with a knife and fork, having cut the top off'n.
The next quest is to find out who makes these pasties for the supermarket chain, I wonder if it might be Crantock Bakery, who entertained me well when I had a tour of their establishment. They already make a wide range of pasties, including a very nice pork and apple one (click "Speciality").
Once again, you get the facts from The Cornish Pasty!
