Marie Callender's

How often do you fall back on this time-honored staple?

by Honeyreply 3904/23/2013

Very seldom as the food is lethal. However, now and again one of those microwaveable pot pies hits the spot. Best not to read the label

by Honeyreply 104/22/2013

For $2.75 Marie is hard to beat for a quick balanced meal.

I doctor mine heavily with the correct spices/condiments/accoutrements.

by Honeyreply 204/22/2013

Once was enough for me.

by Honeyreply 304/22/2013

The coconut cream single is 8 points plus on weight watchers. Damn.

by Honeyreply 404/22/2013

I like the berry pie and the chicken pot pie. I like pie.

by Honeyreply 504/22/2013

It's horrifyingly bad shit.

Don't you bitches know how to cook?

by Honeyreply 604/22/2013

Shut up asswipe @ r6!

Sometimes I don't feel like cooking.

Fuck you dead.

by Honeyreply 704/22/2013

Her frozen sucks but the restaurants were really good.

by Honeyreply 804/22/2013

Cooking is a window into your soul. If you only care enough to serve that frozen, preserved bullshit excuse for food you are probably the same.

by Honeyreply 904/22/2013

Every once in awhile during the winter I'll have one of their chicken pot pies. I know they probably aren't very good for me, but eating one once in awhile isn't going to hurt.

by Honeyreply 1004/22/2013

The restaurant has good pie.

by Honeyreply 1104/22/2013

I second R6, I've never bought it, never will.

by Honeyreply 1204/22/2013

It's the Mercedes of TV dinners. It's the premier top of the line brand when it cums to frozen meals.

by Honeyreply 1304/22/2013

A co-worker of mine eats one of MC's microwaveables every other day for lunch.

by Honeyreply 1504/22/2013

Her pies are okay. The frozen dinners are gross

by Honeyreply 1604/22/2013

Ate at Marie Callender's last week for the first time in a very long time, and I wasn't impressed. The salad was too watery, the cornbread was dry and flavorless, and the pot pie was all right, but nothing special. I remember the food being better than that. Their dessert pies are good though.

by Honeyreply 1704/22/2013

Never. I looked at the fat and calorie content and never looked at it again.

by Honeyreply 1804/23/2013

There are Marie callender restaurants? Where are they?

by Honeyreply 1904/23/2013

in the west

by Honeyreply 2004/23/2013

Strip malls and power centers, mostly, R19.

by Honeyreply 2104/23/2013

They are very fattening.

by Honeyreply 2204/23/2013

The only thing I will eat at Marie is their quiche and pies.

Otherwise, the place reminds me of an assistive living facility.

by Honeyreply 2304/23/2013

Marie Callender TV dinners taste like shit. Even those cheap ass Banquet ones taste better.

by Honeyreply 2404/23/2013

How do MC chicken pot pies compare to Stouffer's? I crave Stouffer's pot pies every once in a while.

by Honeyreply 2504/23/2013

There are 64 grams of fat in the pot pie (24 of which are saturated).

by Honeyreply 2604/23/2013

Yeah, yeah, r26, but how do they taste?

by Honeyreply 2704/23/2013

When I was hurting for money and Safeway had a sale, I bought 20 or more pot pies and eat one everyday. The bag boy felt really sorry for me. So did I after I ate all the pot pies. They are really loaded with sodium, not to mention fat.

by Honeyreply 2804/23/2013

There are a million recipes out there for this type of "food". Get one, use fresh ingredients, and you're far better off. You can cut the fat and the salt. These manufacturers hook us with the salt fat and sugar. Want to loose weight? Drop this kind of shit and learn to cook.

by Honeyreply 2904/23/2013

I shat in [R30]'s mouth last night.

by Honeyreply 3104/23/2013

Used to be family owned company.

Sold off in the 80's and sold again several times.

It's just corporate crap now.

by Honeyreply 3204/23/2013

I don't think I've been to one in years.

But then, the only difference between a Marie Callendar's and a Denny's is the pie, and I have a local store that makes big, wonderful, reasonably priced pies out of fresh local fruit. Mmm, pie. I think I'll buy one tonight.

by Honeyreply 3304/23/2013

Every year on my birthday i get their fresh strawberry pie. Delish!!

by Honeyreply 3404/23/2013

My friend's 85-yr. old mother is addicted to anything MC. She hasn't cooked in years and just pops those in the oven. Healthy as a horse.

Her husband died of heart disease 8 years ago, however.

by Honeyreply 3504/23/2013

Some of these dinners are quite tasty. There's nothing wrong with them. They are priced right and are better than eating a sandwich.

All the haters can just fuck off and die.

by Honeyreply 3604/23/2013

I agree with R36. On sale these things can't be beat and every time I make something of hers at work someone always comments on how delicious it smells. Besides, even the box says only 260-500 delicious calories. If that's true-they are far tastier than that Lean Cuisine or Weight Watchers frozen gruel.

by Honeyreply 3704/23/2013

Stouffer's tv dinners are way better. Love the turkey and stuffing meals.

by Honeyreply 3804/23/2013

Pies are good, but her frozen dinners taste like shit.
