Call James Wright: Patti LaBelle Whipped Up Five New Desserts For Walmart!

Will these fly off of shelves like her sweet potato pie?

Published August 28, 2016

Patti LaBelle has more delicious goodies coming your way.

After her sweet potato pie flew off the shelves at Walmart last year, the singer-turned-baker and the superstore has announced that she will be expanding her exclusive line to include five new desserts, including berry cobbler, apple cobbler, peach cobbler, apple pecan cake, and a sweet potato loaf. 

The success of LaBelle's pies is due in no small part to viral sensation James Wright Chanel, who literally sang its praises after tasting the original sweet potato pie for the first time.

"We were selling one per second for a while after his video went live," said Walmart spokesman John Forrest Ales. "He posted that video and we had to quickly make more, a million pounds."

The prices will range from $3.98 for the original sweet potato pie and $9.98 for the apple pecan cake.  As Walmart said in a statement, "It's a sweet time to work in Walmart’s fresh bakery."

Hopefully Wright will be available to "review" these new concoctions as effectively as he did the last one.
