The Pie Guy @ Harvest Co-op

SeriousPig | May 8, 2003 08:37 PM

Now that Lent and Easter (which is celebrated twice in my household) are behind us, I feel it is safe to talk about my latest obsession.

The Pie Guy is a small company located in New Hampshire and they make the freshest-tasting pies. As their website says, all natural, no preservatives.

Their Wild Blueberry pie has real Maine wild blueberries; their pecan pie and triple chocolate chunk pies don't taste like they're saturated with corn syrup (although I slightly prefer the Cook's Illustrated pecan pie). But I keep going back to their cream pies - especially the coconut cream and banana cream pies because I can't decide which one I like more (I've also tried the Strawberry Superior and will try the Key Lime tonight). The cream filling is not too sweet, and is topped with real whipped cream. My only complaint about the pies is that the crust is a bit on the bland side (needs more butter?), but I'll eat it anyway!

Pies from The Pie Guy are available at Harvest Co-op (cream pies are in the refrigerated section): 9" pie for $11.99; 6" pie for $5.99. But the REAL deal are the pies that are close to their "due date". 9" pies are quartered, and 6" pies are halved - for $2 a piece.
