Grab A Slice For National Pie Day

Pie is definitely worthy of its own day! It has been an unofficial holiday since the 1970s, when pie was abundantly served in diners across America. This glorious culinary creation is versatile and comes in all flavors, shapes, and sizes. In fact, pies have been coming in different forms since the Egyptian Neolithic period in 9,500 B.C.

 

Pie Fact #1: 20% of Americans have confessed to wolfing down a whole pie alone, without any help from others.

 

Americans most commonly eat dessert pies. The top pie flavors include pumpkin, blueberry, cherry, apple crumb, lemon meringue, apple, key lime, and chocolate crème. The only non-dessert pie that receives a lot of attention in the United States is chicken pot pie. In the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Australia, however, minced pies or shepherd’s pies are very common and regularly consumed entrées.

 

Pie Fact #2: 186 million pies are sold in grocery stores and supermarkets in America each year.
