Natural Feast Pies

Recommended Posts

Guest Kathy Ann

I heard about Natural Feast Pies online and there was a brief mention on a post some time back too. For multiple allergies, it seemed like they would be a wonderful blessing. But in my travels to several Wild Oats and Whole Foods in the midwestern states, I wondered why I never found them. I finally talked to a midwestern grocery store chain which has health food sections in most of their stores to accomodate states like mine with few health food stores. They said they actually test sampled Natural Feast Pies and decided not to carry them because the customers thought they tasted terrible. That is SO different than what I heard on this board and the way the product is described online. How could they be THAT bad??

Could those of you who have tried them share your opinions? Thanks so much!

I ordered several different kinds from Natural Feast last Thanksgiving - I have Celiac and didn't know how to cook that well yet.

They were the worst pies I've ever had in my entire life. I've learned how to make my own - 100 percent better.

Do NOT waste your money. They cost a fortune and taste like crap.

we actually did a alternative Thanksgiving feast food demo this past month at three health food stores and demoed those pies, EVERYONE THOUGHT THEY SUCKED... they were just plain nasty... but I spoke with the lady that ordered them and she liked them... she said that a lot of the people that buy them don't buy them because they are gluten free, but because they are vegan and therefore they might be used to weirder tasting foods! LOL!... I personally think they are just nasty.

I made the most delicious gluten-free pumpkin pie for thanksgiving using the gluten free pantrys perfect pie crust mix... it turned out perfect and everyone that tried it loved it...

I sampled them just recently and didn't like them at all. It wasn't the worst thing I definately didn't like it. I tried the blueberry and apple pies.

Boy, do I appreciate all your opinions! I would have been easily fooled by the beautiful website. They sure LOOK delicious. I enjoy making great gluten free pies from scratch. It is just always nice to have the convenience of storebought stuff once in awhile.

Thanks again guys!

I've had the chocolate mousse which i thought was actually really good....and the apple/cranberry which while it isn't the best thing, i don't think it is horrible. then again i'm 24 and can't cook that much on my own just yet :)

I had the Apple Streussel (sp?) recently and thought it was terrific. This is the second time I have tried the product, but the first time I followed the cooking directions to the letter. What a difference! I thoroughly enjoyed the pie and have recently purchased a blueberry pie, which is on the menu for our Sunday dinner.

My advice is to give it a try, but follow the cooking directions. I think you will be glad you did.

Cheers!
