yummy. delicious. heavenly. creamy. fresh.
these are words i often use to best describe these fried pies from Hubig’s. normally followed by the phrase “can i have another”. these things come from new orleans [one of my favorite cities in the world], and man are they addicting.
those are some nice looking pies 😉
i haven’t been to new orleans in awhile, so my wife just recently ordered a box of 12 fried pies from Hubig’s. we received the case yesterday! i cant help but restate – these things are so delicious, they are like little works of art. since you can easily feel the need to eat lots of these [not to mention make them last longer] – my wife and i spilt them in half and share each pie. in the case, we received a mix of the following flavors:
they are all fantastic. nothing at all like the crap they sell at the stores by the much bigger companies. the texture of the crust is firm & flaky. the frosting is perfect – not too sweet. the filings are rich and creamy, and the best part is they are very very fresh!
the company sells them online and they ship them fresh. and i mean fresh these things are made to order. you order pies. they make them fresh. they cool. they wrap. they ship. you eat. its just that simple.
they are simply fantastic. please give them a try. Hubig’s i forgot to mention they currently sell the 12 pack case for $25. and they are worth every penny.
in case you are interested, here is some of the Hubig company history [cited from the Hubig website]
“Simon Hubig began his baking career at the tender age of six, learning from his mother. Fast forward 100 years and two New Orleans families have also made baking pies a family affair.
The Simon Hubig Pie Company was founded in Ft. Worth, TX at the start of World War I by master baker Hubig. One of several plants in his southeastern chain, the New Orleans bakery opened in 1922 in its current Bywater location. Hubig’s chain faltered during the Depression and in the end, only the New Orleans location survived. And survive they do today.
Located in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans just east of the historic French Quarter, the Simon Hubig Pie Company bakes all of their products daily, as in Hubig’s original plant. Fresh, local ingredients are used. And “Savory Simon” is memorialized in the company logo.
Names and faces don’t change too often at Hubig’s. The Bowman and Ramsey families are in their second generations of owner and operators, with a third ready to take the helm.
With the support of New Orleans and Hubig’s loyal employees, the bakery and its traditions will flourish for another 100 years.”
