Kinnikinnick Announces Gluten Free Frozen Pie Crusts
Kinnikinnick has announced the launch of gluten free and ready-to-fill frozen pie crusts.
I tried this crust at Expo West gluten free trade show in February and it made my Top 10 New & Noteworthy Products List. I have been anxiously awaiting its arrival since then. I loved the taste and texture, and I also loved the delivery of this crust! Before my household went gluten free, I used to use those super convenient Pillsbury crusts that come 2 in a box and fold out into the pie pan. Here is that crust in gluten free form – just as tasty and convenient!
In addition to being gluten-free, the new pie shells are also free of dairy, tree nuts, peanuts and preservatives, making the product ideal for consumers with special dietary needs. The 100-calorie per serving pie shells can be used to deliciously mimic any traditional single crust or double crust pie, which you can’t do with the pie crusts that come in a foil pan, and is even difficult to pull off with a crumbly gluten free pie crust mix or recipe.
With a suggested retail price of $4.99, each package of Kinnikinnick Pie Crusts contains two 8” pie shells and will be available starting in September at health food and traditional grocery stores in both the United States and Canada. A variety of recipe ideas for working with the pie crust can be found on the recipes tab of the Kinnikinnick website, www.kinnikinnick.com.
Jerry Bigam, President & CEO of Kinnikinnick, knows that dietary restrictions can make satisfying simple cravings a challenge: “We hope that with our ready-to-fill crusts, baking gluten, dairy and nut-free is fun, delicious, and easy as pie.”
