Today is March 14th or 3/14, so it’s International Pi Day! Pi Day is the celebration of mathematics (or 3.14… the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter). But here at CollectingCandy.com, we figured we could best mark the day with some actual candy-related pie boxes!
I’m a candy packaging collector so I don’t collect every candy-related thing I see, but I did think to save these pie boxes a few years ago and I’m glad I did. Today I can share with you this neat trio of candy-related dessert pie boxes in honor of Pi Day. So let’s get to ’em.
First up are a pair of boxes that I got while grabbing drive-thru at my local Burger King. These may have both been available at the same time, or it’s possible that one replaced the other – I don’t recall. But they come out in 2010 for a limited time, and I can tell you they were both delicious.
The next piece I have to share is one I picked up at the grocery store, but I’m sure it caught my eye because of my happy experience with the BK pies. This is from the Schwan’s Food Company and it’s the box for their Reese’s Pie!
I did find one more pie at the store the night that I found the Reese’s, and though it wasn’t candy-related, I thought you’d enjoy seeing the box for it today.
And that’s everything I’ve got to share for this mathematically-themed holiday. Hope everyone enjoys some Pi today… or maybe just some delicious pie!
See you next time!
I’d like to send you off with one of my favorite cartoons from my pal, Dan Goodsell:
