Patti LaBelle Just Made Our Holidays Even Brighter

#PattiPies returning to Walmart stores this week.

Published December 11, 2015

Unless you've been hiding under your bed waiting for the Apocalypse, you already know all about Patti LaBelle's infamous sweet potato pies, which flew off the shelves at Walmart after one enthusiastic YouTuber shared how much he loves them.


Well, now the rest of us can experience what James Wright described, because #PattiPies are coming back to Walmart! Here's a look at Patti Pies by the numbers. (No, we're not talking about the extra pounds you'll add scarfing these down.) It took 144 hours of baking per week and 2 million pounds of sweet potatoes to keep up with consumer demand of Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pies. Dang!

Swing by Walmart on your way home from work to grab some before they sell out again, and you might want to cop a pair of stretchy pants while you're there.
