DALLAS (KDAF) — Southern food is a staple in the U.S. and you can really find it just about anywhere in the country, but there’s nothing like heading out to your local diner and grabbing a quick meal and finishing it off with a coffee and a slice of pie.

What slice of pie is the king of the south? Apple, cherry, blueberry… no. It’s the pecan pie, of course, and it just so happens that Tuesday, July 12 is National Pecan Pie Day! Without a doubt, NationalToday is all over it as they say 90% of Americans surveyed believe eating a slice of pie is one of life’s great simple pleasures.

The publication said, “People who prefer pecan pie over the many other types of pies describe themselves as thoughtful and analytical. We’re not sure if this still holds true for those who add ice cream or whipped cream but, nonetheless, it’s time to celebrate the delicious dessert today!”
