I was just listening to an the Simon & Garfunkel song "America":

"So we bought a pack of cigarettes, and Mrs. Wagner's Pie"

and I got to wondering if you can still buy them?(pies, not cigarettes)

The quick answer: No, not since 1969.

The story: Go to the Ocean Grove (NJ) Historical Society website http://www.oceangrovehistory.org/HeritageTrails/womansinsert.htm and scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to "Site 17--124-126 Mount Tabor Way"

Wow. So sad. I come from Brooklyn, so I do remember Mrs. Wagner's (now defunct) Pies!
Thanks for the info.

Just received a Mrs. Wagners Pie tin from my mother-in-law, great shape.

YaY Dugan!!! I remember when they used to drive their trucks around Brooklyn and you could go on the truck and pick out your baked goods!
