Pi Day Pies and SCP Pop Up!

Hello Pie Lovers,

March is a big month for pie.  Pi Day is celebrated this month and is the biggest pie holiday next to Thanksgiving for Sweetcie Pie.  Pi is celebrated on March 14th not only because it is Albert Einstein's birthday, but it also approximates the irrational mathematical constant, 3.14.  You can demonstrate your enthusiasm for math (or circles) and celebrate Pi Day with some pie.  Check out the pie offerings for Pi Day here.

Strawberries are becoming significantly more plentiful this week.  I saw a delivery of California berries at my Trader Joe's today!  I expect the price of the Blue Ribbon Strawberry Pie to come down soon.

I had planned to bring the strawberry pie in later this season because of the high cost of berries, but so many of you were asking for it, that I was compelled to put it on the menu (at a higher price).  I'm sure that you've noticed the increase in price of the Boysenberry Pie as well.  The Boysenberries are frozen from places like Oregon, Chile, and even New Zealand!  There really isn't a season that I can discern from this multi-continent market, and it's just a matter of supply and demand.  Hopefully, the price will go back down.  (FYI, the current boysenberries are from New Zealand, and are gianormous. Twice the size, juice, and fragrance). 

Strawberries are a different story, as we are at the epicenter of their production.  I can guess the size, flavor, and abundance (or not) of local strawberries by the weather at home.  I'm an Orange County girl all my life, after all.  Strawberries will become plentiful during the season, and the price of delicious berries will follow suit.  I made a gamble and set the price for Blue Ribbon Strawberry Pie at $32 for Pi Day. I am expecting the price will go back down to $30 around April.

I have more exciting news for Pi Day!  Sweetcie Pie will be popping up for Pi Day on  March 14th at South Coast Plaza.  See the Sweetcie Pie Happenings below for more details.  

And please remember the Claremont Pie Festival, Saturday March 21.  Sweetcie Pie will be there helping to satisfy the pie appetite of thousands of pie lovers.  Other OC pie makers With Love From Scratch will also be there.
