Goode Company Pecan Pie Review
Appearance : I’d buy it just for the box, and the pie definitely looks delicious. Large pecans rest on the top, and the crust has a great, golden-brown color.The pie is tightly sealed in plastic inside the box, and the information along with the pie says it will last 3 weeks at room temperature or 3 months refrigerated. However, this one was not going to last that long.
First step was cutting the pie. The crust was not as smooth and easy to slice as I expected. The large pecans on top got in my way, but I’m not the best pie cutter.
Upon first bite, I noticed how smooth the filling is. Not gritty or too sweet. The nut to filling ratio was really nice, and the pie didn’t ‘gush’ out the sides of the pieces. This pecan pie is straightforward. No extra spices thrown in to ‘snazz’ it up. It is classic, thick and rich. The crust was satisfactory. Although it tasted really nice and buttery, the crust didn’t seem moist enough.
Value: For $35, delivered to your front door, in a keepsake Texas branded wooden box, I definitely recommend for everyone to order the Goode Company Pecan Pie. For those lucky few, I may even be sending you one as holiday gifts this year. Plus, you can order at their online store at goodecompany.com
