BENTONVILLE, AR -- By now, we all have witnessed the power of social media, but who knew that power would be baked in some sweet potato pie? Excuse me, the Pattie Labelle Sweet Potato Pies!
Thanks to this guy's viral video, social media is craving a piece of the Patti Pie...
Disclaimer: You really don't turn into the Godmother of Soul if you eat one. Ha!
Folks' appetites are so big that Walmart has reportedly sold nearly $1 million dollars worth of them in three days! The record sales are a first for the pie line since it hit store shelves back in September.
We're pretty sure Patti 'Ain't Complaining.' She'll probably never have to spend any dough on advertisements.
But the songstress' goods aren't the only sweet sensation this season. According to the national retail federation, holiday spending is expected to increase 3.7% from last year. The average adult will supposedly drop $830 on Christmas shopping alone. That's the most we've spent since 2007.
Let's just hope it's not $830 worth of Patti Pies!
