The Bakery Pie is a High Calorie Food!
Any which way you slice it, bakery pies are a high calorie food choice. This goes for all but the small “party-sized” pies, not just these pies from Banjo’s! That said, if you are going to eat a full-sized bakery pie, try to avoid the ones with cheese! We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, when you add cheese to food which can do without it, you’re not doing your daily calories target any good!
