The half-time pie high
There’s nothing quite like the half time pie.
Burning your tongue on the first bite and the second, spilling the gravy all over yourself and accusing the fattest man on the pitch of eating them all in a sing-song.
The pie is the treasured food of the football ground and while everyone is sure to have their favourite, Holland’s pies have now been officially voted the best in the land.
Their Big Eat Peppered Steak Pie has won a gold award in the Football Stadia class at the 2012 British Pie Awards.
Holland’s spokesman David Girdler said: “To win gold in such a field is a real accomplishment. We make millions of pies every year but every single one is made with care and love.
“Our goal is to produce pies that are loved by everyone, not only football fans who clearly have great taste. This award shows we are achieving that.”
This Lord of the Pies can be found at football stadiums across the country including Manchester United, Newcastle United, Arsenal and Manchester City.
They could make a painful away day that little bit more bearable!
