Happy Pi Day! I hope you’re taking this opportunity to celebrate with a slice of your favorite pie, which, according to a Harris poll, is likely to be a sweet pie with delicious filling.
Apple pie came out on top in the informal survey, capturing 12% of the favorite pie vote. Pizza was in second place at 10% overall, but was the standout favorite among men ages 18 to 34.
Rounding out the top 5 were chocolate / chocolate cream, pecan, and cherry. On the other end of the spectrum, very few people voted for quiche, rhubarb pie, mincemeat pie, or Mississippi mud pie.
Most people like sweet pies more than savory pies, and most say the filling is more important than the crust.
As for the important question of ice cream, the votes are pretty evenly split. Just over half (56%) prefer their pie with ice cream.
However you’re celebrating today, I hope you enjoy it. For my part, I’ll be enjoying a slice of apple pie à la mode.
