Fried pies?! Oh, my!
Chip and Joanna Gaines have added yet another notch onto their ever-growing belt of businesses. This time, it’s a food truck with a menu bordering on perfection.
Located in the the reality TV duo’s sprawling Waco, TX, complex (Magnolia Market, ever head of it!?), the new food truck serves up sweet stuffed fried pies and hand-crafted gourmet sodas. The truck is aptly named Maggie’s Sweet Shoppe, and customers can stop by for their choice of six flavorful hand-held pies including lemon blueberry, brown sugar maple, sugar cookie, chocolate, sopapilla, and—the one I’m most excited about—strawberry.
For those who are showing up just for the pop (though I am almost sure the pie smell will sell you, too!), Maggie’s Sweet Shoppe will have nine flavors to choose from. You’ll be able to go with a “Drive-In Move” (made with regular or Diet Coke, vanilla cherry, and lime), a sparkling soda, strawberry, and lemon flavored sip named the “Sock Hop,” or the Citrus Dream—a 7-Up, coconut, and orange flavor combination.
So what about the prices? It’s all probably cheaper than you would expect as the fried pies are only $4 each while the sodas are $3. If you want to add a little vanilla ice cream to your pie, however, that’ll cost you $2 more. But seeing as pie isn’t complete without ice cream, I’m sure you’ll make the right choice.
