Review: Marie Callender's Fruit Pot Pies

In September 2010, I reviewed Banquet Fruit Pies. You can read the full review here, but the capsule version of it is: They suck.

Now, ConAgra has expanded their line of personal-sized fruit pies by bringing the concept over to their Marie Callender's brand.  Allow me to present Marie Callender's Apple, Cherry Berry, and Peach fruit pies:


Marie Callender's Pot Pies are measurably better than Banquet Pot Pies, even though they are produced by the same company.  So I figured that the same might apply to these fruit pies.  WRONG.

There are only two differences between Banquet fruit pies and Marie Callender's fruit pies: The Marie Callender version is slightly larger, and the crusts are dusted with cinnamon sugar.  Otherwise, they could be interchangeable.  The fillings are mostly blandly-flavored goop, and the fruit within is sparse and mushy. They're every bit as crappy as the cheaper Banquet version.

Seriously, these pies are shit. Avoid at all costs.

Agreed, tried the Banquet version of these like, a year or more ago and thought they were totally lame. Waste of $.
