Coco’s Bakery Restaurant National Dessert Month


October is National Dessert month. And you know how I feel about desserts.

Recently I was invited to Coco’s Bakery Restaurant to check out some of their offerings for National Dessert Month.

Coco’s is celebrating National Dessert month by offering red velvet pancakes for breakfast and featuring a different pie daily ($6.99 for the whole featured pie or $1.99 per slice).

I’ve always enjoyed the pies at Coco’s, so FH and I went this weekend to check out some of the new seasonal pie offerings. I was provided with a $15 gift card to spend.

FH really loves pies. I let him choose. He wanted to try them all…He finally narrowed it down to four: blueberry, coconut cream, pecan and harvest.

Harvest Pie

This is one of the seasonal pies on the menu and the one we were most interested in trying. It’s a layer of pumpkin pie and a lighter layer of a pumpkin chiffon on top. Sometimes I find regular pumpkin pies to be too overwhelming with all the spices. I like this version better because of the light, airy, mousse-like chiffon layer that blends well with the more dense traditional pumpkin pie filling.

I didn’t take a picture of the blueberry because it sort of fell apart.

Coconut Cream Pie

I liked this one. Sweet, creamy, with lots of coconut flakes.

 

Pecan Pie.

This ended up being our favorite one. We were both surprised on how well it was made because we’ve had a lot of pecan pies that we don’t like. It had the perfect ratio of pecans and filling. Some pecan pies have too much filling and not enough pecans in my opinion. While it was very sweet like pecan pies, it wasn’t clawingly sweet like some pies can be.

We enjoyed our pie slices. I plan on picking up a Harvest pie for an upcoming potluck. I’ll also have to come by again to try out the red velvet pancakes.

Please note, I received a $15 gift card from Coco’s to spend on desserts for review purposes. I was not compensated by the company for this review.  All opinions are my own.
