365 Pumpkin a little off?

Published November 26, 2013 by Vegan Derby Cat Party


Just a heads up!

I made a couple of pies (my recipe here) tonight and discovered two things:

1. My new oven runs a bit hot.
2. The [Whole Foods] 365 pumpkin is a little weird this year.

As soon as I opened the can I noticed it was a really deep orange that seemed a little unfamiliar. The baked result had a little tang to it? In the past I thought the 365 brand was tastiest, but I’d urge you to skip it this year if you haven’t done your shopping yet. We’re heading to the store now to pick up some extra items, and some different pumpkin.

Good luck and happy baking! 🙂

  • That is strange about the pumpkin, though the pie looks good! I have definitely noticed variations in pumpkin between brands but not within the same brand. I would as others have mentioned, talk to WF.

    I have a favorite brand of pumpkin but for the life of me can not remember what it is! If I remember, I’ll update this comment. It’s organic and the can says BPA-free and the wrapper is orange.

  • You may have just had an off can. I’d talk to whole foods and ask them about that batch number – maybe it’s something they need to know about, or if they’ve had other complaints maybe they will offer a replacement/ credit.

  • Say a little something?
