My own feeling is that Crisco is so synthetic that I'd rather use pure lard (without all the preservatives) and just not eat it very often.
If you rely on only taste then I think lard in pie crusts is a pure winner by several lengths. The more unhealthy food is the better it tastes. I thought everybody knew that by now.
If it tastes good it is bad for you.
If it tastes bad it is good for you.
