    Walmart: Patti LaBelle pies are flying off shelves and selling on eBay for $40


    The $3.48 pies starting flying off shelves last weekend. They are now sold out in many stores and selling on eBay for as much as $40, NPR reports.

    But when the pies — which were created with singer and cookbook author Patti LaBelle — first debuted in September, no one paid much attention to them.

    So why the sudden frenzy?

    Walmart can thank James Wright, a man who posted a musical tribute to the pies on Facebook a week ago ...

    Patti LaBelle Tasted My Sweet Potato Pie and I Almost Died


    My culinary dreams came true Friday when Patti LaBelle stopped by the Yahoo Food offices to chat with me about her famous sweet potato pie.


    LaBelle’s pies, which are basically sold out at Walmart, are the hottest dessert in the country, thanks to a hilarious and touching viral video by Chicago singer James Wright. But he’s not the only one singing about Patti’s pies.

    The legendary singer included a version of her sweet potato recipe in her 1999 cookbook, here ...

    Patti LaBelle Vows to Help James Wright Chanel Achieve Greatness




    ... “I will sing with James anytime but that boy out-sings me,” the vocal powerhouse quipped. “He goes high, high, high up in the heavens. He can sing ‘Walk Around Heaven’ all day and honey. His voice is beautifully, beautifully high. I mean perfect. He has perfect pitch… I think he’s going to be all of that and a bag of chips. He’s doing the right thing, I think he has like 10 jobs and he keeps himself out there and he keeps himself current so he’s going to do well for himself and I’m going to make sure I help.” ...

    Welcome to Destee.com Huey50, and thanks for the update. And that's not to mentioned what outrageous prices scalpers were able to collect :facepalm:

    Nevertheless, I remain hopeful it will be different around Christmas time, maybe:kickball:

    Video: Steve Harvey Tastes One of Patti LaBelle's Sweet Potato Pies (In Front of Patti LaBelle)


    If you thought nothing could top James Wright Chanel tasting one of Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pies, you haven’t seen Steve Harvey take a bite.


    Patti and James taped an episode of Harvey’s eponymous talk show last week — to air Dec. 16, the same day the duo’s holiday special, Patti LaBelle’s Holiday Pies, premieres on the Cooking Channel. In our exclusive sneak peek above, James warns Harvey to “get your Patti ready” as he picks up his plate. Harvey makes Patti wait a full 12 seconds for his response. But, man is it worth it.

    I wonder how much Walmart is charging for these pies. I love Patti, I really do. And , sweet potato is my favorite pie... I don't mean to be a hater, but, there ain't no way in the world I would pay $40 for a store bought pie.
