At Mrs. Wick’s you will have some of the best pie you have ever tasted. We have been there before to eat, but this time we just order pie – and lots of it! Here is a list of what we ordered and thought about each piece:
Cherry Berry — It has two crusts, one on top and one on bottom. Cherry Berry has cherries and red raspberries in it. It is VERY tart. The raspberries have seed, but the cherries don’t. You can really taste the fruit.
Peanut Butter — Delicious! It has whipped cream on top of a cream pie. It also has nuts on top of the whipped cream. The flavor is really rich. Be sure to get there before it runs out. It is very popular and when it is gone for the day – too bad.
Chocolate — It has whipped cream and chocolate shavings on top of a cream pie. The flavor is very rich. It has a lot of chocolatey flavor. YUM!
Coconut — The pie has a meringue topping and toasted coconut on it. It is a cream pie with lots of coconut in the pudding center. The coconut tastes sweet, the pudding itself is plain. It is chewy from all of the coconut inside.
Apple Walnut — It has a double crust – on top and bottom. There are big chunks of apple with cinnamon in it. There are only a few walnuts – so don’t be afraid to try it even if you don’t like nuts. It is gooey between the apples and very sweet. It would be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Lemon — It has a meringue on the top. It tastes like a Lemon Head candy. It is more sweet than you would expect it to be. The level of tart is just the right amount; it is not as sour as the Cherry Berry pie!
Banana — Oh, my! It is good! It has a meringue topping. There are big chunks of banana and banana pudding in it. It is sweet and smooth.
Pecan — The top has a layer of pecans forming a hard (yummy) crust. It has a caramel goo in the middle. It is very sweet and could use whipped cream or ice cream to be number one.
Sugar Cream — This is the official state pie of Indiana! It is smooth and creamy. The burnt sugar flavor is richer than in the other cream pies. It has a flavor of creme brulee. It is one of everyone’s favorites. You can buy an entire sugar cream pie to take home for just $5.00!
Peach — This pie just didn’t work for any of us. It has a double crust and large slices of peaches. It needs whipped cream or ice cream on it. The goo inside was too sticky without much flavor.
Pineapple — Don’t knock it until you try it. It has a whipped cream on top. Inside is a vanilla pudding/cream center with chunks of crushed pineapple. It is a pie that would be really good on a hot summer day.
Favorites: peanut butter, banana, chocolate, apple/walnut, pecan, and sugar cream.
Least favorites: peach and pineapple.
We suggest you get a big glass of cold milk to drink with your pie. Our waitress Kim was super! She never questioned why three kids got to eat 11 pieces of pie in one sitting. She always gave us some interesting background and information on each pie. You can buy Mrs. Wick’s pies at the grocery if you can’t make it to Winchester, Indiana. It is a fun stop on a road trip across Indiana.
