OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Marie Callender's®, a brand of ConAgra Foods, Inc. (NYSE: CAG) is launching a new Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie, just in time for the holiday season. A combination of two seasonal favorites, the Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie delivers the same great taste and creamy texture of Marie's traditional pumpkin pie, but adds the perfect contrast by topping it with a crunchy, nutty streusel for a festive finish to any occasion.
Marie Callender's newest dessert features her signature flaky, made-from-scratch pastry crust, brimming with real pumpkin blended with just the right spices and finished with a crunchy brown sugar streusel with toasted pecans.
"For decades, Marie Callender's has been creating homemade desserts with high-quality ingredients and signature special touches, and often look to our consumers for ideas on new desserts and flavors," said Christiane Brocky, vice president & general manager, ConAgra Foods. "In fact, the inspiration for the new Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie came from consumers indicating it would make a perfect combination, so we're excited to now offer two of their favorite sweet, seasonal pies in one delicious dessert."
Marie Callender's Pumpkin Pecan Streusel Pie is available in the freezer aisle at select grocery stores nationwide including Wal-Mart, Kroger and Meijer for the everyday suggested retail price of $8.49 but retailers may have lower prices for the holidays.
