Review: Popeyes - Blackberry and Cream Cheese Pie

Popeyes' Blackberry and Cream Cheese Pie ("Blackberry 'N Cream Cheese Pie") is a new, limited-time pie featuring a deep-fried, bubbly turnover-style crust with a piped filling of cream cheese and blackberry puree.

I picked one up at my local Popeyes for $1.29.

The pie came to me nice and hot. The crust has that thin, crackly, crispy layer from deep-frying with a standard flaky pie crust underneath.

Inside, I found an even layer of soft, melted, slightly-sweet cream cheese next to a layer of sweet, tart blackberry compote.

Blackberry is probably my least favorite of the standard berry pie fillings. It tastes a bit more muted to me than say strawberry or raspberry. I think it's just particular to me though because other people seem to like it quite well and describe it differently than what I taste. That being said, it tastes like blackberry to me, which is fine. I still enjoy it but much prefer the previous Strawberry and Cream Cheese Pie.

Overall, Popeye's Blackberry and Cream Cheese Pie delivers on a crispy, flaky pie crust, mellow cream cheese, and tart blackberry filling. I love the crust and like the filling.
