Schwan’s Bakery, Inc., the makers of Mrs. Smith’s® have created a line of “guilt-free” single-serving pie slices that are delicious and satisfying – reminiscent of the company’s award-winning traditional whole pies. Boasting 60% less sugar than their traditional fruit pies and 0 grams of Trans Fat, Mrs. Smith’s® fruit-filled, microwavable pie slices are sweetened with SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener for a taste that’s easy on the waist.

The new, reduced sugar treats are available in classic Apple and Mixed Berry varieties. In grocer’s freezers now, Mrs. Smith’s® pie slices with SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener are sold in twin packs for easier portion control. SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener, a trademark of McNeil-PPC, Inc., tastes like sugar because it’s made from sugar, and has no calories. Mrs. Smith’s® pie slices with SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener are an ideal choice for people who want to limit the amount of sugar and calories in their food, including diabetics. The food exchange information is based on the Exchange Lists for Meal Planning (2003) by the American Dietetic Association and the American Diabetes Association.

“The use of SPLENDA® Brand Sweetener in Mrs. Smith’s® reduced sugar pie recipes is a great combination,” said Mike D’Addieco, Brand Manager, Mrs. Smith’s® Bake and Serve. “Consumers get full flavor and texture as with a traditional Mrs. Smith’s® apple or berry pie -- with less sugar.
