Walmart Sells How Many Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pies Per Second?
Music legend Patti LaBelle's career is sprawled out over seven decades and she has sold over 50 million records worldwide. LaBelle is in the Grammy Hall of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame and at 76, the super soprano is not only the Queen of urban music, she is 100% the Queen of pie.
In 2015, Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie hit Walmart store shelves and thanks to a fans review of the pie that went virul on Youtube, Walmart was selling one per second. And when Walmart sold out, the pies started selling for hundreds of dollars on eBay.
Today, six years later, Patti LaBelle, whose net worth is over $60 million, has since appeared on just about every cooking show there is and has launched other products including Southern Buttermilk Pie, Peach Cobbler, Bread Pudding and Banana Pudding.
Today, Walmart sells over 36,000 Pattie LaBelle Pies every day. That's 1,500 pies every hour, 25 pies per minute.
That's nearly one every two seconds. If you multiply them out, Walmart has sold over 65 million pies since the product debuted, enough for everyone in America to have a nice-sized slice.-FoodandWine.com
You can make Patti LaBelle's Sweet Potato Pie at home, as she has very much made the recipe public. But it's probably a whole lot easier to just pick one up from Walmart for under $4.
