Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie Product Review

Updated on November 2, 2014

Chocolate Desire

For the past couple of years, I have been seeing Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pies in the freezer cases of Hartford, Connecticut area supermarkets. Being a big fan of all things chocolate and especially chocolate cream-style pies, I really wanted to try eating at least one of them.

While shopping at ShopRite supermarket in West Hartford recently, I noticed that they stocked the single serving-size Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pies.

The single serving pies are packaged in an attractively designed, small cardboard box. Each box holds two 3 ounce pies.

Upon seeing the chocolate satin pies, I decided to purchase a two-pack and I'm very glad I did so.

Presented here is an honest product review of Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie.

Size

Each of the Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pies measures-in at 3.5" x 1.5" .

A large, full-size version of the chocolate satin pie is also available. The pie weighs 28 ounces and contains six servings.

Price

The regular retail price charged for one six ounce package of Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pies at ShopRite supermarket in West Hartford, CT is $2.99.

Texture / Consistency

The texture or consistency of a food item is an important part of the overall experience of eating that item. Each Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie offers several pleasing textures. Of course, with a name such as chocolate satin, texture plays a big role.

The chocolate cookie crumb crust that anchors the pie is slightly crunchy. The crust marries well with the pie's other delightful ingredients.

A wonderful chocolate filling that is almost mousse-like in texture is featured in this pie. On top of the chocolate filling sits a fairly substantial layer of smooth whipped topping. A good amount of milk chocolate curls are sprinkled throughout the whipped topping.

The overall mouth-feel offered by this pie is quite pleasing.

Nutritional Facts

One Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie contains 380 calories, with 220 calories from fat. Each pie also contains 11 grams of saturated fat, 2 grams of trans fat, 24 grams total fat, 25 mg of cholesterol, 210 mg of sodium, 180 mg of potassium, 35 grams total carbohydrates, 3 grams of dietary fiber, 21 grams of sugars and 5 grams of protein.

Taste / Flavor

Ever since the first time I saw a Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie, I fantasized about what the pie tasted like. I imagined that it tasted like a high quality chocolate cream pie. To my tastebuds, a good chocolate cream pie is one of the world's best desserts.

As it turns out, my taste-fantasy was pretty accurate. The Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie is definitely a delicious dessert item.

The chocolate cookie crumb crust on the pie offers a somewhat subtle, yet deep chocolate flavor that is not too sweet. The crust balances well with the pie's other ingredients.

On top of the chocolate cookie crumb crust sits a layer of scrumptious chocolate filling. The chocolate filling provides a rich yet not overwhelming flavor that is sweet but not too sweet.

A fairly generous portion of tasty whipped topping rests on top of the chocolate filling. As far as frozen whipped toppings are concerned, this one really does taste good.

The curls of milk chocolate that stud the whipped topping add yet another dimension of great flavor to the Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie.

On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign a rating of 9.90 to this frozen dessert.

Packaging

Packaged two to a box, the single-serving pies are contained in little black plastic cups that have replaceable clear plastic lids.

The front label on the box holding the pies features an appealing photo of the enclosed pie underneath the familiar green and white Marie Callender's logo.

Overall Rating

All things considered, the Marie Callender's Chocolate Satin Pie is a very tasty dessert item that provides a great ending to virtually any meal.

This frozen pie is reasonably priced, requires little preparation time and does not taste overly sweet.

The only drawback to this product that I can see, is that the saturated fat content is quite high. Because of that factor, I have been trying to eat only one-half of a pie at a time. To be honest, one-half of one of the single-serving size pies is definitely enough to satisfy my dessert cravings.
