Think about how versatile gravy is when compared to pumpkin pie. Biscuits and gravy, ham with red-eye gravy, even plain-ass poultry gravy with some potatoes. The only real problem would be caloric, but that’s easily remedied with portion control. Half a cup with breakfast, the other half cup with dinner, and a light, healthy lunch. THE CHOICE IS CLEAR, PEOPLE. Reply Eick November 17th, 2010 I think most people will assume gravy is worse for you, and most people will be wrong. A cup of gravy will give you as much as 2/3rds your sodium for the day, but calories only range from 80 to 250 depending on what type of gravy. A slice of pumpkin pie can range between 250 and 550 calories with as much or more fat than the gravy. Plus, pumpkin pie isn’t that good, you’d be sick of it instantly. Gravy can be incorporated into almost anything. I’m with Ben in this one! Reply Cassie November 17th, 2010 Considering the only pumpkin I like is Pumpkin Spiced Ale, I would rather starve than eat pumpkin pie everyday. And the calories thing is an added bonus Reply Comic November 17th, 2010 I’m going for pumpkin pie, mostly because I don’t even use a full cup of gravy when I DO want gravy. And I will typically eat a slice of pumpkin pie a day for as long as there is pie. I love pumpkin pie. Reply Lis November 17th, 2010 I freakin’ love gravy, but a cup is too damn much. Reply red November 18th, 2010 yeah gravy alll the way… i could probably eat gravy on anything Reply Cynthia November 18th, 2010 I have no choice, and it’s a bad choice. I don’t like pumpkin pie, but I agree with Lis that a whole cup would get really old really fast. Sigh. Reply Mark November 18th, 2010 I’m with Ben on this one, pumpkin pie is great and all but I’d get sick of it after a few months. Whereas there’s a lot you can do with gravy. Reply Sam November 18th, 2010 PUMPKIN PIE!!!!! I have three words for you: whipped cream conduit. Reply Jen November 18th, 2010 I could never, ever get sick of pumpkin pie. Ever. Bring it on! Reply Kathryn November 19th, 2010 I am totally NOT a gravy kinda gal. Pumpkin pie is my absolute favorite and I could eat it by the pound! Reply Andrea January 2nd, 2011 Gravy-in a HEART (attack) BEAT Reply Spam January 12th, 2011 Since we’re not told that we have to give up either food altogether, I have to go with pumpkin pie. I love gravy, but it’s only so often that I find myself eating a dish that could use it. Reply Emnm April 20th, 2011 I agree with the pumpkin pie pie people! I have one slice of pumpkin pie at least once every year could you wonder when? pumpkin pie all the way…….
