    hey guys just a quick question, what do you guys prefer?

    Ive tried Pukka Pies and think thier nice, however a freind says that Shire Famous Pies are much better!

    Is it true?

    Need this info really for a freind who is opening a fast food takeaway soon :p

    They must have differing amounts of hoof and testicles if they taste different, but im not going to try so won't find out, ill leave it to others and take their word for it :D.

    Agreed, never heard of any of them. Are they quite local to certain bits of England only? Bells pies aren't bad for packet ones but I don't really bother with pies unless they are from the butcher.

    I had a Pukka Pie 2 days ago... the lid pretty much blew off the top when I opened the paper (from chippy). The stuff inside wasn't pretty to look at so I had to put the lid back on and not think about it! It tasted good... whatever it was.

    Homemade is infinitely better.
