The road ends, but the journey continues...

I Truly Do Confess

Edwards Spiced Pumpkin Creme PieA mere seven days ago – a full week ago – I innocently took my first bite of an Edwards Special Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Crème Pie.
I am not one for Pumpkin Pie, but I do take that obligatory bite on Thanksgiving for tradition’s sake.
However. This year?
Let’s just say I finished it off Wednesday, December 4th, 2019. Slice-by-single-slice.
…all except one slice that hubby ate and liked that fateful Thanksgiving Day last week but which left me with six leftover slices because it didn’t agree with him.
Leaving me to fend for myself against over consumption temptation.
Oh, but like the advert says:

“Seize the holidays with a decadent new tradition – velvety layers of real cream cheese and pumpkin spice crowned with a double layer of whipped crème rosettes on a fresh-from-the-oven vanilla cookie crumb crust. Oh. My. Gourd.”

So. I did. Seize the (holi)days.  Slice-by-single-slice.
…except on Wednesday – I had two slices. The second-to-the-last in the AM and the last in the PM.
So glad it’s a Limited Edition – I truly do confess.

    I’ve never had pumpkin pie. I’ve not lived.

      Traditional pumpkin pie? Meh.
      This stuff? Wow.

  2. Catherine de Seton

    not a type of pie you would find in New Zealand either…but I do understand it’s a bit like applesauce and smashed up and creamy looking…the packaging looks delicisuos; it wouldn’t last long with me, if I had even opened it with the idea of a slice!

    Yum!

    I’ve never really liked pumpkin pie, but that sounds delicious! Good for you for sparing your husband from having to eat something that didn’t agree with him. It’s the little sacrifices we make in a marriage that keeps it strong.

      …and our sense of (dry) humour, too.

    Hi Laura! Limited Edition?!! Darn it – it’s probably too late for the rest of us mere mortals to give it a try. I like pumpkin pie but I wouldn’t cross the street for a slice. I didn’t eat any this year . . . but maybe your pie would have tempted me into having one. Good to know for next year! It sure looks very, very yummy. Oh, poor unsuspecting you – now you’ll look forward to Thanksgiving for one additional reason after this. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I love this. Part confession, part homage.

  7. L. Marie

    I wish I’d been there! I would have eaten a slice! It looks delicious!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Oh yes, L. Marie…we’d of had a great time, too!

  8. Mary

    Ha! Just pat yourself on the back for not sitting down with the rest of the pie and afork the morning after Thanksgiving!

    • laura bruno lilly

      Now you’re talkin’. I’ll take them kudos.
      🙂

    • Roseanne

      Right, Mary?!! That sounds like something I may have done . . . and definitely would do! ~smile~ Roseanne

    Laura, and here I am waiting for a slice to help you out!

    LOL! Derek was just talking about the Edwards Chocolate pie last night. It’s on sale at Harris Teeter! I was trying to convince him not to buy one…but now, I’m not so sure. 🙂

    • laura bruno lilly

      Too funny, Jill! I am a bit of a choco pie snob as I make my own – but now that I know the depths of delight with Edwards Pumpkin Spice Pie, I’d be sorely tempted with their ‘not-limited’ edition Chocolate Pie.
      Oh dear!

    My confession is that I have never eaten pumpkin pie as it is regarded as only a vegetable here. But when I read your description my mouth watered. Thank heavens Edwards Special Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Crème Pie is not available in South Africa because I would be sorely tempted if it were.

    • laura bruno lilly

      Seems you’re safe – for now!

  12. Laura

    I would’ve helped you consume that calorie laden pie of deliciousness, Laura! We only live once! 🙂

    • laura bruno lilly

      Hey Laura! I like your attitude…perhaps you might go for the ‘Key Lime pie’ eh?
      😉
