National Pie Day Facts
National Pie Day was created by the American Pie Council in 1986 to commemorate Crisco’s 75th anniversary of “serving foods to families everywhere.”
The first pies appeared around 9500 BC in the Egyptian Neolithic period (New Stone Age).
Pie Throwing has been a staple of comedy films since 1909, when Ben Turpin received a pie in the face in Mr. Flip.
