For many years now, I have been a regular consumer of Little Debbie brand snack products. Last week, I tried the Little Debbie Lemon Pie for the first time. Presented here, is one food writer’s product review of Little Debbie Lemon Pie.
The net weight of the single serving size Little Debbie Lemon Pie is 4.0 ounces (113 grams). According to the product’s nutrition facts label, one pie counts as one serving, but I received two servings from one pie.
One half of one of these pies was big enough and sweet enough to satisfy my appetite and sweet tooth, so I saved the remainder and ate it the next day. In physical size, the pie measures approximately 5″ x 2.75″.
The suggested retail price printed on the front of the Little Debbie Lemon Pie container is $0.75c and that is the price that I paid for one of these pies at a Hartford, Connecticut grocery store. Being a regular consumer of Little Debbie products, I think that their products are always a bargain and the Lemon Pie is no exception.
Texture / Consistency
When I first saw the Little Debbie Lemon Pie, I was surprised by how much it resembles a Hostess Lemon Pie. The pie is rectangular in shape and features an outer crust that envelopes the lemon filling.
The crust is fairly thick and its texture is firm. The lemon filling is smooth and almost creamy in texture and it provides a nice contrast to the crust.
Little Debbie Lemon Pie contains 410 calories, with 170 calories from fat, per one pie serving. This product also contains 11 grams of saturated fat, 0 grams trans fat, 18 grams total fat, 0 mg of cholesterol, 530 mg of sodium, 59 grams total carbohydrates, 1 gram of dietary fiber, 30 grams of sugars and 3 grams of protein, per one pie serving.
Taste / Flavor
When it comes to flavor, I have mixed feelings regarding the Little Debbie Lemon Pie. On one hand, I think that the crust is a little too sweet and there is a little too much of it. On the other hand, I really enjoy the flavor of the lemon filling.
One of the main reasons that I ate only one half of the pie is because I thought its overall flavor was a little too sweet. On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign this product a rating of seven.
The Little Debbie Lemon Pie is packaged in a white cardboard box that features a close up illustration of the enclosed pie on the front label and a listing of all relevant ingredient and nutritional information on the rear label. The box is easy to open and it also re-closes effectively.
If you are a fan of sweet, lemon flavored desserts, you might really enjoy this pie. I enjoyed eating it in moderation and would definitely eat it again.
