Breaking (and Heartbreaking) News About Hubig's Pies
A reader let me know today that the factory where Hubig's Pies are produced in New Orleans was destroyed in a five-alarm fire last night. This is sad news indeed, for as I wrote in a previous NOLA blog post, these small pies are delicious and "manufactured" without much machinery, i.e., real people made these desserts, and have been making them since 1922.
The families that own the company hope to rebuild. But today, I'll bet that every Hubig pie, available in grocery stores and drug stores, has been sold, since it will be a while until they sweeten New Orleans again.
