Thank you. I think.

Oh, and why do they call it Ovaltine? The mug is round.
The jar is round. They should call it round tine."
 

Oh, and thanks, Tony.





Do you have any thoughts on airline food that you'd like to share?

Sharing airline food is akin to terrorist activity.

Hey stricken_detective,
 
In my own quest for blueberry pies I noticed that you had enjoyed some similar frustrations. I went to every sort of convenience store around, and no blueberry pies. Very few fruit pies of any kind, and most places had none at all. Kroger and Publix don't sell them either. Some WalMarts seem to have some tabletalk blueberry pies available some of the time, selling them under the name 'Old Fashion' or something similar. I've seen several "berry" options, and more blackberry than blueberry. At cutipie.com there is a berry that looks like blueberry, but... So have you had any good luck with this? It seems like it should be easy for find a great selection of blueberry snack pies, but noooooooo....

It seems to be a regional thing. Around here, just about every supermarket and convenience store sells blueberry pies, both snack size and full-size. Brands are Table Talk, Frisbe's (made by Table Talk, though I think the box says Olds Baking Co. on it), Entenmann's (a few weeks out of the year), and Tastykake. You can almost always buy a blueberry pie in the faux fresh bakery departments of the supermarkes - comes in frozen from firms like Rich Products Corp. and then baked off in the store.

Actually, if you buy a can of Comstock or Thank You blueberry pie filling and some frozen pie crusts, you get a pretty decent blueberry pie.

That does make sense. Blueberries are a northern plant so more people would be familiar with them and there would be a greater demand than in GA where I am. I remember we got them at the convenience store down the road in NC.

At Tastykake's website they sell them in their "Lemon, Peach & Blueberry Pie Collection". Three of each for $20! That's not counting shipping. Why make such a "collection" to begin with???

That sounds like the most practical and economical idea, even though I've never bought a pie shell and don't know anything about them. I did buy a can of blueberry pie stuff and poured it over somerthing once though and that turned out great. I just can't remember what I poured it on.
