POLL: On National Pie Day, What’s Your Favorite?
Yes, National Pie Day is a real thing, and a perfect excuse to eat an entire pie.
Did you know Jan. 23 is National Pie Day? Created by the American Pie Council, this special day is a way to celebrate pie in all its glory.
Also, it’s no coincidence this tasty holiday is celebrated on 1/23 – according to the council, baking a pie is as easy as 1-2-3.
“Other holidays may be marked by a day off from work or aisles full of cards, candy and gifts in the drug stores, but National Pie Day is the only holiday that’s all about indulging in America’s favorite dessert-pie-and sharing it with friends and loved ones,” the council says.
Even though the bakers were blissfully unaware of the holiday, employees at Pick ‘n Save on the corner of Main Street and Highway 164 say apple is their most popular pie. That’s no surpise considering apple pie is the most popular in America, followed by pumpkin and pecan.
But here’s the question, Sussex: What’s your favorite pie?
