Product Talk: Marie Callender’s Pot Pies

Marie Callender's Pot PiesApril is Autism Awareness Month, something I’ll touch on more in tomorrow’s blog post about a gluten-free, casein-free banana bread.

But for today, I want to talk about how people with autism spectrum disorders usually (99.99999999 percent of the time) have sensory issues – they hate tags in their clothing, can’t stand the sound of an emergency siren or can’t eat certain foods because of taste, smell or especially texture issues.

I have a son with autism. I have a dear, dear friend who has a daughter with autism (boys are affected 10-to-1 over girls). This little girl, who has bright blue eyes, hair like cornsilk and an infectious giggle, loves Marie Callender’s Pot Pies.

When you have a child with autism, who will happily go for days without eating before touching something that’s crunchy or cold (for example), you are thrilled beyond belief to have a home-style option for your child to nosh on.

Marie Callender’s Pot Pies, found at Brookshire’s, have so many varieties to choose from. You can select down-home Chicken Corn Chowder Pot Pie, Creamy Parmesan Chicken Pot Pie or Cheesy Chicken & Bacon Pot Pie. Each of these meals is contained in a flaky, buttery crust and only takes minutes to prepare, perfect for your child with autism who is about to have a meltdown because you’re running late or any neurotypical child who is worn out and needs dinner quickly.
