How was your Halloween? Mine was great!
Well, it was good, but it could've been better. I had a costume party that I had to skip due to illness, and it was raining so we only got two Trick or Treaters. And they weren't in costumes. But I did watch "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" so the evening was saved.
I didn't post anything other than comics during October! I planned to, but got busy and decided to just enjoy the whole Halloween month without feeling obligated to post about it.
On to Thanksgiving!
A few days before Halloween I discovered this:
I've enjoyed each of the Krispy Kreme glazed pie variations that I've been able to find. And Pumpkin Pie is one of my favorite kinds of pie (second only to sweet potato). But I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to try this. It did not sound like pumpkin filling would go well with the glazed crust.
But I had to try it. I've reviewed all the other kinds I've found at my local grocery store, and this was available for a Limited Time Only!
So I bought one, hoping I was wrong about the taste and flavor.
More about that in a bit, but first... what's with the 4PUM on the back of the box? Did that mean 4 PUMpkin? For pumpkin? Or was that some other unrelated and coincidental thing?
Now back to the glazed pie.
They are very, very good.
I ate this pie like 3 weeks ago, and I can't quite remember exactly how it tasted and felt. I just remember that I was pleasantly surprised. If I remember correctly the pumpkin pie-like filling was much creamier than actual pumpkin pie filling. It was more like the normal creme filling you'd expect from a doughnut with some pumpkin-style spices.
I would put them as number 3 on my list of favorites after #1 Banana Kreme and #2 Lemon Pies! Unfortunately the Glazed Pumpkin Pies are for a "Limited Time Only!", just like the Banana Kreme pies.
So go out and buy a bunch and distribute them among your favorite family members at your Thanksgiving get-together!
Krispy Kreme, if you're reading this, please send me a case of your Glazed Banana Kreme pies. I miss them so.
