We stopped for one of those vending machine pecan pies last Saturday night, at the giant squirrel on Hwy 71.
I’ve driven past it so many times in the night over the years, resisting the beckoning sign of digital red that calls out to late night travelers,
“NEED PIE? VENDING MACHINE WITH PIE!!! STOP NOW!!!”
So last Saturday night around 2:30am, I thought what the heck….
I’ve never seen a vending machine with pie.
To my surprise, the machine vends FULL SIZE pecan pies, not slices.
So… I got one. And had a piece with my coffee the next day.
I don’t usually care for pecan pie, as it’s usually a glob of corn syrup with a few poor choice pecans floating on top. Too sweet for me and not enough of the good stuff. But my husband and kids like it. Hence the purchase.
I have to say I’m impressed. This pie is mostly pecans!! And good ones! Just look at it!
I still have never been inside this store. Usually not open when I drive by. But the vending machine in the middle of the night is a hoot!
Next time, I’m trying the pecan brittle.
