Comments: I have ever loved your lemon meringue and key lime pies, but now they are a rare treat for me. So a special occasion arose and I picked up a small box of lemon meringue for me and the missus. It was excellent, as usual, but I noticed that the pies are much smaller than they used to be. That was a disappointment, looking at that tiny slice of pie sitting forlornly in a sea of pie plate. I think I would have rather paid more and received a nice full sized slice of pie.

Thank you for your prompt reply.  I am sure that the Quality Assurance Team will decide to bake their pies in bigger pie plates now.  Alas, I think that your coupons will only purchase another tiny slice to sit once again forlornly in the center of my dessert plate. But I suppose that is the sacrifice we have to make in this new era of less for more. Perhaps in the meantime, Quality Assurance can put the tiny slices in bigger boxes, maybe sitting on an inexpensive paper doily or something to give the illusion of size.  I don’t suppose they will need reminding to PhotoShop® the pie onto a smaller plate so that it looks a bit larger on the box.


Once again, thank you for your time and patience

      A standard pie pan is 9″ … but I think they cut the pan down to 7″ … I don’t think the pie slice was over 3 1/2″ ..

    🙂 Smart marketing people. Now they sell two pies instead of one because people like their pie and that one pie is just not enough 😉

    Smaller products, increased prices = consumer ripoff.
