Shelf stable processed cheese product pumped into slices of bread would make an awesome cheese brea…oh wait, never mind. Now that I’ve said it out loud, it sounds disgusting. (Spotted by Dorothy at Giant Eagle.)

If they were able to include apples in this pie, I would’ve gotten out of my chair and applauded it. Combining two pies into one is nice, but combining three would’ve been awesome. (Spotted by Jacob at Smiths.)

  1. Re: Snack sticks As mentioned, why are they advocating double dipping? :p

    Re: Marie’s pie “Crust made from scratch” as opposed to what? To me, made from scratch means homemade from individual ingredients , not prepackaged. I really don’t think Marie C. was in the factory making all those pie crusts…. Someone explain please

    1. I had the same question. Odd to see “made from scratch” when you know they’re mixing in big cats and filling/baking on an assembly line… But Marie Callender’s stuff really is quite good.

      1. That’s mixing in big vats, not cats as my spellchecker decided to say. (Why it doesn’t recognize vats, I don’t know.) Although the idea of mixing pie filling in big cats is rather intriguing if unhygienic.

    2. And they should at least suggest snapping the stick in two for a second dip…. It’s a nice idea, though, I like to eat their croutons alone sometimes and the stick form would make that seem normal.

  2. Maybe they mix the crust at the factory using powder rather than bringing it premade? Does it really matter though, it’s still pretty processed.
