I bought a frozen BLACKBERRY PIE, made by Claim Jumpers, the first week of October 2011. When I got home I saw on the front of the box it said 100% MARIONBERRIES. But the box was labeled Blackberry pie. I did not know what a marionberry was. I thought I was buying a Blackberry pie. I had to look it up.
A marionberry is the most common type of Blackberry in the US. So I pre-heated the oven to 400 degrees, as per the directions. Made 4 holes in the top for venting. In the oven it went. After baking for 75 minutes, as the directions said, I was ready to pull it out. The top was bubbling. The outside crust was brown. Let cool for 3 hours (per direct). When I cut into it there was more WATER in it than berry. I feel I got taken...**
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- I purchased two different entrees by the Claim Jumpers Retail Foods, Inc. One was the chicken and shrimp penne rustica. The other was roast turkey breast with dressing and broccoli. Having eaten at several Claim Jumpers restaurants and knowing the size and goodness of their servings, I felt I was in for a good meal. WRONG! The photos on the package should bear the disclaimer that the contents do not represent the package contents in any way.
The shrimp (of which there were TWO) were the size of a nickel and just about as eatable. At first I thought they had left out the shrimp entirely until I lifted a piece of the "penne" and there they were. As for the turkey, it was O. K. except the dressing could not be eaten. Anyway I tried to e-mail the web site listed on the package only to be told it was no longer in service. So I wrote a letter to the address on the container. It was returned as "not deliverable". I called a phone number listed as Claim Jumpers Retail Inc. Yes you guessed it, "the number you have dialed is no longer in service". So here I'm writing to anyone about my experiences.
TUALATIN, OREGON -- On Thursday, Oct. 1st, I was part of a group of about 10-11 people who met up at the Claim Jumpers for food, drinks and general socializing. We got there around 2:30 with the intention of ordering off of the Happy Hour menu. Due to the size of our party the staff put together several tables in the main dining area so we could all sit together. Unfortunately, that meant we couldn't get any of the Happy Hour specials since they were available in the bar area only. The tables in the bar area were unable to be re-configured so moving to the bar would have meant splitting us up into smaller groups which would have cut into the socializing.
After asking our server if there was any way to get the Happy Hour prices due to our large party, she sent over the manager who agreed to make the exception. We wound up spending almost three hours there having appetizers, drinks and desserts and had a wonderful time. The food was really tasty and the staff was very friendly.
SUNNYVALE, CALIFORNIA -- Had tried the Claim Jumpers Pumpkin Pie-5 Stars Good flavor and the crust is like Grandma's homemade. So I thought I'd try the Dutch Apple for Thanksgiving. It comes with a mixture of sugar/spices you add in the last 10 min of baking. Wow it is sweet. Great pie crust, apples, but if you get it, use about half of the sugar/spice mix.
TACOMA WA. -- I am 82 yrs old and have been a gourmet cook for 40. I have avoided TV dinners because most I found them to be bland and unappetizing. When a friend recommended Claim Jumpers I tried the turkey and can honestly say it's far superior to any TV dinner I have ever had. My wife and I have one every Tue. It is delicious and couldn't be improved on. Your pot pies are also the best ever. Keep up the good work. We appreciate good food.
GEORGIA -- A few years ago I discovered your Claim Jumpers frozen pot pie - OMG best pot pie ever! I've had it a few times and then it disappeared from my supermarket. I was devastated and have not been able to find where it is being sold. I am in Georgia zip code 30620, although that probably doesn't matter. Is this product no longer available?
So people just don't know how to microwave. I saw that someone try to microwave a pot pie for 10 min. That's too long. Learn to cook. Know your microwave My question is where can I buy your frozen pot pie. Why are you not in the markets anymore? Can I order by mail? You have the best pot pies out there. I will not eat anyone else. I went to Ralph, Vons, Albertson, in Simi Valley. Can't find your pies. Are they in Los Angeles store somewhere? Please let me know. Forever GOOD!!!!!
VALENCIA, CALIFORNIA -- Having purchased the above named product and baking it per your directions and letting it cool the recommended length of time when we cut our portions they came out runny and weren't able to tell what they were. The taste was good but almost needed a straw to finish it. **
