Review: Blake’s Turkey Pot Pie and Beef Pot Pie

img_2687I was selected by Moms Meet to product test and review Blake’s Turkey and Beef Pot Pie.  I not only picked the Turkey and Beef but the Chicken and Shepherd’s pie as well.

 

I’m always slightly annoyed at how when you buy pot pies these days they should HONESTLY be called Pot Tops. Pies means there is a top crust and a bottom crust. If you are going to be so bold as to call your product homemade and a PIE it damn well better BE A PIE. But sadly, Blake’s so called Pot Pies consist of a TOP with no bottom crust what so ever. I found it interesting that there wasn’t a 1-800 number on the back of the package either to let them know any feedback. I don’t run into that too often! At the sickening expensive price of $3.99 each I can’t recommend these to anyone. I did however enjoy the Shepherd’s pie even if it didn’t have anything other than corn, meat and potatoes. I would not be willing to pay $3.99 for it though.

Blake’s started as a family farm in Concord, NH by Great Grandma Clara Blake in 1929 raising the finest free-range, all-natural turkeys and soon became a holiday standard for thousands of New England families. In 1970 Charlie Blake sold their first pot pie from the back of his ‘67 Chevy van at St. John’s Church in Concord and thus Blake’s pot pies were started. Four decades later, Charlie and his wife, Sally, were distributing pot pies throughout New England and built a new production facility at the farm. Very little had changed. They were still using Clara’s recipes, cutting vegetables by hand and making gravy from scratch. Theirs was a thrifty, mom-and- pop business operating with a simple goal: Put healthy meals on the table for as many folks as possible. Today, Blake’s meals can be found nationwide and every meal is still made from scratch in small batches just like they always have been. Blake’s has grown from just pot pies to a variety of meals include an organic line of meals and gluten free as well. Blake’s is blessed with a wonderful staff and a shared vision for positively affecting the lives of their customers through their food.
