Review: Hoosier Mama Pie Company

So this is a review based on some pie that I had at Hoosier Mama Pie Company in Evanston, IL.  And it was awesome.

As a heads up, I'm not the person in the family to get excited about pie.  My husband is the one to talk about pie, wanting to bake a pie, or eating pie in general, but I'd rather have ice cream, cake, or even Boston Cream Pie (which I don't even consider a pie.  It's cake with a cream filling in the middle).

Anyway, I was in Evanston before picking up our dog from doggy daycare, and thought, why not?  I hadn't tried Hoosier Mama before.

However I was not the only one who wanted pie.  It took me 20 minutes to stand in line, order my pie, and get said pie.  This location is also a large coffee shop (Dollop Coffee Company) so there was a good mix of people wanting coffee and pie.

Anyway, after all that waiting, it was finally pie time.  I got my husband a slice of apple pie, and I got a slice of the s'mores pie.

The s'mores pie (which I am excited to review for you all) had a crust with a graham cracker consistency, a chocolate cream, and then the top was light, marshmallow-y, and airy with a 'campfire' like taste.  I hope they took a blow torch to the top of this pie.

Sure, I think I waited too long to get this pie, but I would be back.  My husband also loved his apple pie, if that's any consolation.

  • If you are in Chicago or Evanston and want some pie, I recommend you go to Hoosier Mama's and get the s'mores pie specifically.  But I've also heard good things about the apple...
