ASDA is already selling mince pies - and it's left shoppers divided.

There might be four months to go until the big day but that hasn’t stopped the retailer stocking its own-brand pack of six mince pies.

The seasonal snack contains raisins, festive spices and crumbly pastry – and Asda says “it’s not Christmas without them”.

The festive find was posted on the NewFoodsUK Instagram page and was met with a mixed reaction from social media users.

One person commented: “I wouldn’t say no!”

Another said: “Seriously - I’m going there tomorrow?!”

A third asked: "This is crazy, how can they be on sale so early?"

The packs are selling for 97p.

Sadly, you can’t buy these online just yet so you’ll need to check your nearest Asda store.

It turns out other retailers will be following suit, with Tesco and Morrisons confirmed customers will be able to buy mince pies from September 3.

Waitrose shoppers will find them in store from mid-October.

Lidl couldn't confirm when they will start selling the festive treats.
