The Review

Easy to hold, Whiffie Pies are a meal in a handy grab and go pie shell. They have a variety of savory and sweet pies (and vegan too!). Each pie is fried when you order it, so there is always a bit of a wait even if there is no line. Then you have to wait for the pie to cool a bit (if you can) so you don’t burn your mouth (a foodie lifestyle hazard!).

The mac and cheese pie was exactly what you would expect, mac and cheese in a pie shell. The pie dough was cooked to a golden brown colour and was crispy and tender. The mac and cheese was average homemade mac and cheese and it felt like a little something else added to the mix would have made it awesome. Checking today’s menu online shows the cheese mix today to be Tillamook Sharp with Gorgonzola and it has peas or peas and bacon added to the pies. This sounds fantastic and we are disappointed to have missed these variations. Next time!

The mounds pie was the same pie crust as the mac and cheese one but filled with coconut cream and melted chocolate chips. Every bite was filled with coconut flavour and chocolate chips were evenly distributed. They have succeeded in emulating a mounds chocolate bar and making it even better. I might be a little biased because Mounds bars are one of my favourite chocolate bars but I loved this dessert.
