Agreed! For the current sale price this pie isn’t bad, we picked one up last week at full price and wish we’d just spent the extra on the Farm Boy chicken pie.

I love chicken pot pies, especially the crust. That said, I stopped eating Costco chicken pot pies and PC Blue Menu frozen PC's because they make me feel slightly nausea (Non Blue Menu pizzas I am fine with). I tried multiple times to make sure it wasn't a one off as I like the taste of both items, but my body doesn't like something in them.

These are good for an easy meal when you're too busy/lazy to cook. Just pop it in the oven for an hour.

The tourtière is pretty good too. Haven't tried the broccoli one nor the Swiss Chalet pies because they're lighter.

The Costco one is fresher but also twice the price.

This is a super salty pie. Couldn't eat it. I hope Health Canada will introduce the legislation on salt soon.

Again, what's wrong with the ingredients in the Kirkland chicken pot pie? Let's have some reasonable discussion here, instead of just fear-mongering, based on the length of an ingredient list. We didn't come this far as a society to shun centuries in advances in food science because we're too ignorant to learn about what's in our food.

The difference in ingredients is probably not that significant. Since the Kirkland list includes EACH individual component of the seasoning blend, the chicken stock powered base or liquid they use. As well as each and every chemical preservative found in EVERY ingredient such as the flour, and margarine. If St Hubert did that they would have a very similar length list unless they used boiled chicken, veggies and just the stock from the cooking of the chickens.

Also since the Kirkland pies are made instore they acknowledge that cross contamination could have occurred with nuts, soy, dairy and wheat.

It would be exactly the same idea as if you listed out the exact ingredients of a cherry pie you made at home vs just what the recipe called for.

Also if you had been baking brownies with nuts just minutes before making the fruit pie. Could you 100% guarantee that you had not 100000000 mg of any nut in the fruit pie? Probably in all honestly you could NOT so it be best to just say hey there might just be some ingredients that people have allergies to in it. Also lots of times ingredients that go into a finished product have been produced in facilities that have allergens used for other products in them making it a very difficult to know for sure yourself if it would be 100% safe.

Both have the 3 major food groups for flavour SALT, FAT, and SUGARS if they did not they probably could not give them away LOL.

St. Hubert had a short lived pulled pork version of this pie that was delicious. Only had it once a few years ago and haven't found it since. Not a fan of chicken pot pie or tourtiere (the meat lacks flavour imo).

I'm in no way fear mongering at least that's not my intention. I've eaten quite a few of them until someone mentioned to have a look at the ingredients. If someone is looking at those ingredients it could be very intimidating that is all, not to mention you could look at those ingredients in there long form and easily think WTF is all that. Not everyone is a chemist.

Instead of going " WTF? ", why not research the term on scientific websites, while avoiding alternative health fear mongering anti-vaxxer soccer mom bloggers?

If companies realized people like you get scared of an HONEST ingredients list, they will simply hide it under something like "SPICES" so they won't lose sales to products with DISHONEST ingredients lists.

This will ruin EVERYTHING, just like how everything else is being DUMBED DOWN for the unwashed uninformed masses.

All companies should be government mandated to release the DETAILED food ingredients, instead of just "SPICES".

When does RFD ever consider something a good buy at full price, except for the one offs such as a ps5 where the value is worth more than the msrp.

For some of us, the PS5 is overpriced when sold for $10. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

The original chicken pot pie from St Hubert (Pre 2016 - when it was acquired by Cara Operations) was a LOT better than the one they sell today. They have really cut corners on everything . It now has nearly half the filling it used to have. I used to love st hubert everything, but it is very blah lately.

I had the Costco one about 2 weeks ago, and I was pretty impressed overall.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the Costo pie ingredients. People see sodium something and they automatically freak out.

We have been buying St. Hubert's chicken pies for years and have been mostly satisfied. BUT the one we baked last night can't rightly be called 'Chicken' pie since we were unable to find any trace of chicken in the entire pie. Some peas, lots of creamy sauce, not-so-great crust, but NO CHICKEN. Very disappointed. Considering complaining to the manufacturer.

From the other posts, perhaps it is time to switch over to Costco.

I am sure you are correct. I remember St Hubert pot pies as they were sold in their restaurants. Just a fantastic meal and a great lunchtime special.. Then I bought on of these frozen jobs..never bought a 2nd.

True! I really miss going to St Huberts here in the GTA, much better than Swiss Chalet. I had to drive further and further till the last location closed, so sad...

Can't expect much from Cara, they don't care about their customers, as we all know how bad Swiss Chalet is still, after customer complaints.
Looks like they ruined the famous St Hubert brand already...
