It's National Pi Day! A celebrity in the math realm, pi is a name given to the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Regardless of the size of the circle, the value will always be the same, the never-ending 3.14159265359....
However, unless you're truly into your mathematics, you're probably like me and thinking that pi isn't really all that exciting to celebrate. Now, pie, on the other hand? That's a whole different story.
Which is why it makes sense to celebrate this special day with a name that knows all about pies, Edwards.
Founded back in 1950, Edwards has been committed to providing customers with convenient, great-tasting frozen desserts made with premium, high-quality ingredients ever since. Even better, their large variety of mouth-watering pies and desserts are available as whole pies as well as in convenient individual servings, so there's something for everyone.
In honor of National Pi Day, Edwards has even taken things a step further and have launched three new pie flavors — Mounds Coconut, Salted Caramel and Banana Crème — to their already-huge collection! Yum!
Having never tried Edwards desserts before, we were eager to head to the store and see which of their delectable options were available near us.
While our store didn't have any of the new pie flavors available, we were still excited to see Key Lime Pie, Hershey's Crème Pie and Pecan Pie (on sale!) and ready for our consumption.
Unsurprisingly, when we returned home with the Hershey's Crème Pie, Big Sister E and Little Sister B were more than ready to dig right in.
|Can I have a piece of pie now? When are we going to have the chocolate pie? Is it time for the chocolate pie? All afternoon.|
After checking over the extremely easy directions for thawing (I love that Edwards gives you the option of thawing the entire pie or just a slice at a time), we placed the pie in the refrigerator and were excited about what would emerge in a few hours.
The layers of chocolate, whipped cream, chocolate cookie crust, chocolate drizzle, chocolate chips...
...they're pretty much magical together.
This pie tastes completely fresh, while being rich, creamy, melt-in-your-mouth delicious — we each cleaned off every last morsel from our plates.
The next time you are looking for an indulgent dessert for your family or to bring to a special occasion, let Edwards do all of the work (and provide the amazing results) for you. Visit their handy store locator to find a local grocer near you, where a full pie retails for around $8.49.
Remember that they sell individual slices as well, so those would be a perfect way to treat yourself or pick up a special dessert for you and your sweetheart!
