Default Diet Pumpkin Pie

Carnival give up on the Diet Pumpkin Pie, please I beg you!!! This was not a traditional style pumpkin pie. Instead it's a gelatin moouse type pie with a graham cracker crust. The problem is the gelatin part has a weird texture and is favorless. Three people ordered this (I was one) only one person finished it. I got the Apple pie instead and that was wonderful.

See, that's what happens when you order something termed "diet".

Diet will not be in my vocabulary when it comes to dessert time. I have been sticking to my pre-cruise diet and plan on breaking the rules when it has come to be the norm to skip desserts and have small portions. I can not wait!!!

Diet is a word that should never be used in the same sentence as either "dessert" or "cruise" IMO.

I dunno, if this is the worst gripe we have, we are close to running out of things to complain about.

You didn't taste that pie. I would prefer to eat scrapple.
