Hollands pies/puds now available in the south of England at Asda

Found 20th May 2011
Please be kind, my first post.

I found Hollands Meat & Potato pies in Asda yesterday, twin pack at £1.27 or 2 for £2. Most varieties are available, cheese & onion, steak & kidney puddings, etc.

You may think "so what", but I spent my early years in the North of England where these were readily available, including the local chip shop. When I moved down South (in my teens) there were no Hollands pies to be found anywhere. (Farm foods sold them for a couple of years, but no more). However, these are now packaged fresh, not frozen.

Really missed these and looking forward to pie, chips, mushy peas and gravy tonight!!!

Enough of this generalisation, the North of England does NOT make meat pies out of potato! It's just parts of the NORTH WEST - the vast majority of the north wouldn't know what one of these pathetic things is!

In general, meat pies contain meat, meat and potato pies contain meat and potato.
Since when do pathetic meat pies contain potato?
Are you from the south?
Pah! LOL

No I am from the North where pies aren't made out of potato. That's the point, only in the north west do people think pies are full of potato, meat being so tiny a percentage it is barely detectable. People from the north west think the rest of the country have pies like this.

I am from the north west, and can confidently state that you do not know what I am thinking.
Are you Derren Brown? LOL

I don't give a monkey's what those in the north west think. I am concerned that the impression is given that the north west is "the north" when it is not.

What's that go to do with pies?
LOL

What has that got to do with pies?

Did you REALLY Laugh out Loud?
I didn't actually think it was very witty, but it seems either I have an ultra humour sensitive audience, or someone trying to Troll, but very badly.

You are trying to discuss your "northern" issues on a pie thread.
I think you need therapy.

*smile*

I see, I need the therapy when I am not the one laughing out loud, and smiling for no reason! Do you ever give in trolling? I dare say you can get therapy for that too.
