Have you ever eaten a can of cherry pie filling?

What is a better way of using cherry pie filling other than being put in a pie? For one person?

Possibly a T. or so over a scoop of vanilla ice cream (loaded with high fructose corn syrup, however.)

No, but my Dad bought a can of cherry pie filling about a month ago and he ate the whole thing himself, with scoops of ice cream over the course of a few days.

Spreading it on waffles doesn’t seem too bad, Over the course of a few days that is.

I like mixing it with Cool Whip. Not a entire can. It is my version of the most unhealthy parfait you can make.

Never. I don’t think I have ever had cherry pie filling in my house. I would put it on cake I think. Chocolate or sponge cake.

If you are inclined to eat a spoon now and then by itself I would do that rather than ice cream cake, or waffles. The filling probably has a ton of sugar, but the ice cream, cake, and waffles add more sugar plus fat and cholesterol and more empty calories. Don’t eat the whole can at one sitting.

The thought of eating a whole can of cherry pie filling is disgusting to me.

I agree with @jca. Yuk.
I would leave it on the shelf as emergency food in case I needed 1000 calories or so of sugar.
If you are going to eat it – and we all know you will – you should space it out over a few days.

I’ve made a multiple layer chocolate cake, used for between the layers.

You could probably make German chocolate cake with it.

But my first thought was, “oh noooo, he ate a can of cherry pie filling in one sitting, and is now asking us for advice!” It’s early, I’m groggy. :p

No, but I ate almost 2 pounds of fresh red cherries in one sitting this weekend…
