Christmas is four months away, so Asda is of course selling mince pies

Four Christmas mince pies, One half eaten, on a green and white spotted napkin.

Its officially the first day of autumn. Overnight, weve air kissed and clinked flutes with the summer that was, meaning its time for only one thing: Christmas! Right?

Summers bed hadnt even gone cold when Asda snuggled right in with a little red box of festive mince pies. Yep, theyre selling them in September.

The package reads: Juicy raisins, festive spices and crumbly pastry… because its not Christmas without them. And apparently, it isnt September without mince pies either.

The seemingly early roll out of the Christmas staples is getting shoppers talking, with some welcoming the pies despite them expiring in October.

Seriously @asda? Its still August!! #mincepies #christmas #shopping

Perhaps youre happy to butter up a hot cross bun outside of April, or youre partial to theatrical cobwebs over the front door year-round, but wed wager there are some of us who think indulging in these treats outside of the season is breaking tradition.

Just putting this out there @asda…Is there a demand for #MincePies in August? Best Before date is October 19 so Im thinking, they must be a late summer snack for some? wrote one Twitter user.

Bladdy #mincepies on sale in #Asda . It is August … whats next..January Sale in September @AsdaServiceTeam Give us a break, wrote another.

Bladdy hell indeed.

It might turn your world upside down to learn that Asda sells their mince pies year-round. Even other supermarkets sell them outside of the silly season, with Tesco and Morrisons stocking those sweet little pies from tomorrow.

One Twitter user, who might not be sure about the non-compulsory aspect of grocery shopping, wrote: “Congratulations @Tesco for ruining this years Christmas!!! September 4th and you are FORCING this us on already with mince pies etc!!!”

Over the years, Asda has been a supermarket go-to for mince pieRead More – Source
