FatApples - FRESH blueberry pie, fresh raspberry pie, apricot-ollieberry & the bran muffin

Well, the bran muffin sounds a little anti-climatic after all that pie. I've been after that bran muffin ever since Robert mentioned it a while back, but they were always out.

It is a nice classic bran muffin with big chunks of walnuts, enough raisins and a texture that isn't too dry. The bran itself has a nuttiness to it. It is not overly sweet and nicely balanced.

HOWVER, the big news is their fresh bluebery pie ... you know, like the fresh strawberry pies with the glaze on them ... only with blueberries ... good blueberries, tasty blueberries.

The glaze is excellent, on the light side so it doesn't turn to glop. It just enhances the blueberry-ness of the pie. There is some respectable whipped cream piped around the pie. The berries sit on a thin layer of custard. For a shortening-based crust, FatApples does one mighty fine job.

They also had fresh raspberry which I haven't tried or the apricot-ollieberry. IMO, FatApples does a far superior job of ollieberry than Duarte's does. The apricot-ollieberry seems like an interesting combo.
