SideDish Pie Lover Gets a Surprise at Cindi’s Deli

PieGate: Sara Lee at Cindi's.
PieGate: Sara Lee at Cindi’s.

One of our most loyal and lovely SideDish readers popped into Cindi’s Deli to buy a lemon meringue pie. When she got home, she tore off the Cindi’s wrapper and found another: Chef Pierre, a division of Sara Lee. The menu promotes “Fresh Baked Goods Daily” but it doesn’t claim the pie is homemade. A whole pie is $14. According to Sara Lee, the pie is made with “real imported lemon oil.”
