Review of Banquet Fruit Pies

Love pies.  Hate baking.

If this is your mantra, you might be surprised to find that the line of Banquet individual fruit pies taste an awful lot like homemade.  I tried a few this week, and while I won't be eating an entire one on my own (they are 300+ calories per pie), I really did enjoy eating them.  One half pie with a little Redi-Whip was just what I needed to treat myself after a very stressful day.

My husband likes the Cherry Berry, full of little blueberries and cherry filling.  I am partial to the peach!  You might enjoy the apple.  All flavors start out frozen, and after about 3-4 minutes in the microwave, come out steaming hot and with a golden brown crust -- just like you baked them (but without the wait or the energy use from a running oven.)  At less than a buck a pie in most market, these little one-serving desserts are nice to have on hand.  They are perfect for when not everyone can agree on a pie!

When you buy a Banquet Fruit Pie from your grocer, look for the Child Hunger Ends Here logo on the package.  You can go online to enter a code that will help end child hunger by providing a meal to a child in need!  Read more about this campaign at our Child Hunger Ends Here Blogger Correspondent page, or check out Banquet's website!
