CALIFORNIA -- In this day and age when the nation is pushing health, you people put
"lard" in your pot pies.....and no telling what else. I normally check
ingredients on any new product that I purchase. However, I failed to do
so because I initially tried one at a friends house (fruit pie). I then
purchased. When I read the ingredients later, I had to toss 6 pot pies.

You are probably loosing customers because of using lard except for those
people who just don't care or mostly can't afford better.

Please take this complaint seriously. Lard/pig stuff should not be
consumed by humans although millions still do.

Thanks in advance for your response.

Banquet has never been associated with quality.

There is a lot of debate on lard versus butter. I think a lot of it is how much lard, butter or shortening you consume. My Grandma made the best baked goods you ever ate and they were made with lard. She and my Grandfather lived to be in their late 80s. I think food in moderation is the key. If you are that concerned about eating a small amount of lard or other unhealthy ingredients, I advise steering clear of almost all frozen prepared food because most of them contain very little recognizable food ingredients.

These meals are primarily fat in the form of lard or another disgusting ingredient, salt and as little actual meat/vegetables as possible. They are inexpensive and people like the taste of fat and salt in most cases so they sell.

Like spider said, moderation is the key. Lard is fat, but works in many recipes.

"You are probably loosing [sic] customers because of using lard except for those people who just don't care or mostly can't afford better."

My assumption, after trying one of these several years ago, was the market for these is precisely people who "don't care or mostly can't afford better." They are horrible.

I doubt that they will change. Other companies like Dell and Ashley Furniture appeal to one common denominator, price, and have a similar profile. This is good information for others to see though.

"In this day and age when the nation is pushing health"

Some people don't care about what people are pushing and chose to make their own decsions.

"you people put "lard" in your pot pies"

So...

"and no telling what else"

If you were blessed with the gift of sight, you'd be able to read the ingredients on the container. It's not difficult.

" I normally check ingredients on any new product that I purchase."

A wise practice

"However, I failed to do so because I initially tried one at a friends house (fruit pie). I then

A bit overreactionary IMHO, but whatever floats your boat.

"You are probably loosing customers because of using lard except for those people who just don't care or mostly can't afford better."

Some people don't make knee-jerk reactions to such things and realize that lard has it's uses for cooking and that in moderation isn't going to kill you.

"Lard/pig stuff should not be consumed by humans although millions still do."

Solely your opinion.

What do you think they do with the lard? just put great honking globs of it in the pie? It is used in the pastry crust. Some of the best pie pastry you will find is made with lard. So long as you aren't eating it by the truckload, it is not going to do much harm. As the others have pointed out, moderation is key.
