I haven't seen "One Pie" pumpkin since I lived in Maine, that is all that my mom used when I was growing up, I don't even think that we had Libby's!

It's still fairly common around here. It's as good as any other brand.

it's a long story . . .

but in short, Libby pumpkin pie filling is not made from "pumpkin"

almost.

technically what pipples call "pumpkin" is a squash.
but for pies/taste etc there are better squash candidates to the purpose.
nor is Libby is some huge conspiracy to hide that fact.

I guess I don't know what you mean, this is what was on the website:
"LIBBY'S 100% Pure Pumpkin is exactly that — with no additives or preservatives. We wouldn't want anything to interfere with our unique, delicious pumpkin flavor."
and like I said before, there IS a difference between other squash and pumpkin. I know because my dad gets deathly ill from pumpkin, but can have other squash. They are coming for Thanksgiving and if I were to make a PUMPKIN pie, he would get very, very ill. So I am using a butternut squash.
As far as their "pumpkin pie filling" most of us (if not all) were recommending the canned pumpkin, not the pie filling.

I wasn't sure either what the point of that post was.

In New England the "One Pie" brand not only makes pumpkin, but canned squash as well, my mom would sometimes make squash pie with the pumpkin pie recipe, it would taste very very similar, just the color would be a bit more yellow than orange.

Also, if pumpkin doesn't agree with you, you can make a sweet potato pie. I find them to be similar in taste, but a little firmer.

I thought about that, but we are already having sweet potatoes with the meal. Do you know of any good sweet potato pie recipes? I may make one later on during the holidays.
