January 23 is National Pie Day not to be confused with the other Pi Day, this National Pie Day has nothing to do with math and everything to do with being a great excuse to eat pie! Which is exactly what the Houston Life team did. From pecan to pizza to an Aussie Staple, the meat pie, Melanie Camp roped in Derrick Shore and Lauren Kelly for some pie sampling.
One the menu...
All that is sweet and delicious from Three Brothers Bakery, including their delicious pecan and cherry pies. And incase you needed anymore of an excuse to eat a treat, until January 30th, Three Brothers Bakery is hosting a bake sale to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society at all their stores. Bakery co-owners, Bobby & Janice Jucker, have lost two dear friends to blood cancers, Harris White and Jeff Burck, and “ we decided it was time to start raising awareness and money to help end this invasive cancer,” said Bobby Jucker. All proceeds of featured LLS baked goods will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Houston.

Boasting the worlds largest slice, Fat Brothers Pizza Pies are HUGE! If you are brave, you can take on their 2 Ft Challenge where if you eat an entire 2ft of pizza in 7 minutes or less and receive a Fat Boy’s Pizza T-Shirt & a $20 gift card. AND, if you beat the current record held by Joey Chestnut (39 seconds), you win $10.000! Check out the video. Click here and scroll down.
And for a pie from Down Under...
Mel roped in a mate! Head Brewer at Platypus Brewing Downtown, Sean Hanrahan, arrived on set with a few warm and delicious Australian-styled meat pies which Lauren Kelly said was DELICIOUS!
