Kinnikinnick Launches Gluten Free Pie Crusts





We are pleased to announce that we are launching a gluten-free and ready-to-fill frozen pie crust.


In addition to being gluten-free, the new pie shells are also free of dairy, tree nuts, peanuts and preservatives, making the product ideal for consumers with special dietary needs. The 100-calorie per serving pie shells can be used to deliciously mimic any traditional single crust or double crust pie.


With a suggest retail price of $4.99, each package of Kinnikinnick Pie Crusts contains two 8” pie shells and will be available starting in September at health food and traditional grocery stores in both the United States and Canada. A variety of recipe ideas for working with the pie crust can be found on the recipes tab of the Kinnikinnick website, www.kinnikinnick.com.



Jerry Bigam, President & CEO of Kinnikinnick, knows that dietary restrictions can make satisfying simple cravings a challenge: “We hope that with our ready-to-fill crusts, baking gluten, dairy and nut-free is fun, delicious, and easy as pie.”

Direct customers please note: Because pie crusts are sold frozen & uncooked, they will not be available through our home delivery program

Thank goodness! :D I can't wait to try these pie crusts out. Just wondering - does Kinnickinick have any plans for a rolled out crust at any time in the future?
