The convenience store custard fried pie - an endangered species

jimmysspecial | Dec 27, 2008 09:57 PM

The custard fried pie has bit the dust. Gone at convenience stores and supermarkets alike, discontinued ...

Just a year or so ago, pull in any 7-11 and you could partake in Hostess (or Mrs. Bairds') lemon, chocolate, coconut fried pies. Or perhaps pineapple ... Anyway, the cheap custard fried pie has been gone for nearly a year ...

A lemon or coconut pie used to be a fine reward after a night of hard-working drinking, or after a night of philanthropy at t-bars, passing out partial scholarships to worthy students ...

Nowadays though, you can only get an apple or cherry fried pie at your local store.

But I don't want to eat apple or cherry pies, too sweet! I want the orgasmic lemon pie, chocolate, coconut ... mmmmm

I think a Fort Worth company is keeping the love alive, called Mindy Lou's Pies. Yeah they are preaching the gospel of custard pies for a buck or so. But they don't get good distribution, just try to find one.

Any thoughts?
