Here in Texas, we have something called a fruit pie, a dessert you have probably heard of if you've ever watched "King of the Hill." It is not a pie in the general sense, but a pastry shell covered in a sugar glaze and filled with some sort of goo--cherry, apple, pecan or whatever. I decided I wanted a lemon fruit pie and quickly discovered they could not be found! Fruit pies are ubiquitous; you can find them in any given grocery or convenience store. Every place had cherry and apple, but not lemon. After three days of searching, I finally found my coveted pies. I'm not sure why I could not find them, but at the time, it felt like some sort of conspiracy.



If anyone is going to the San Diego Comic Con and would be willing to pick up a couple things for me, please let me know. I will gladly pay for them, plus shipping. You would be guaranteed my undying devotion (or something like that) and make a couple geeks very happy.

Those little Hostess pies? We call them fruit pies or pocket pies around here, depending on who you're talking to. I like the apple ones, myself, but the lemon are good, too. I haven't seen those in ages... and am now struck with a serious craving. Good thing tomorrow will include time for a trip to the store.

I always love reading the little signs in Minty's cubicle. They make me laugh.

Out of curiosity, what's a "dew cake"? Is it something just for the comic, or is it an actual type of cake?

Hostess does make them, but most Texans will tell you they're a shoddy imitation of the Mrs. Baird's fruit pies. ~_^

Something for the comic. ^_^ Dew cake is the most popular dessert in Ponyland. It's a small, spongy cake, sort of like angel food cake, injected with jelly and drizzled with a gooey frosting that resembles dew on top. Some are lightly toasted to make the outer edges crispy, but most ponies prefer them untoasted.

That sounds utterly delicious.
