If you’re the type of person who believes “there’s always room for pie,” then you’ve come to the right place! One out of every five Americans admit to having consumed an entire pie by themselves. We are not here to judge, just to guide those who want to enjoy a slice or entire pie while in Wichita.
Pie is one of the most served desserts during the holidays, and its popularity keeps it on many bakery and restaurant menus year-round. As if we needed more reason to eat pie, National Pie Day is on January 23 and Great American Pie Month is February—not to mention all the flavor-specific pie days throughout the year.
