Mrs. Smith’s®, America’s #1 selling frozen pie brand and a perennial favorite at the American Pie Council’s (APC) National Pie Championships, won five blue ribbons at the 2006 competition. The judges favored Mrs. Smith’s more traditional Key Lime Pie and Deep Dish Blueberry Crumb. Held annually in Celebration, Florida, the National Championship is a professional competition which draws the nation’s top bakers.

“Mrs. Smith’s desserts taste and look homemade and that has always been our edge,” said Mike D’Addieco, Brand Manager, Mrs. Smith’s® Bake and Serve. “We consistently use quality ingredients to ensure that our customers get full flavor and texture in every bite. Clearly, the judges taste and appreciate the quality of our desserts, as well.”

Just before the Florida competition, Mrs. Smith’s® introduced a line of single-serving, microwavable pie slices that are sweetened with SPLENDA® sweetener. Ready to serve in seconds, the pie slices boast 60% less sugar than the company’s traditional fruit pies and 0 grams of Trans Fat. The fruit-filled treats are satisfying as snacks or desserts added D’Addieco and are available in classic Apple and Mixed Berry varieties. Mrs. Smith’s with Splenda sweetener is ideal for people who want to limit the amount of sugar and calories in their food, including diabetics. In grocer’s freezers now, the pie slices are sold in twin packs for easier portion control.
