BEST ALL-AMERICAN CONFECTIONARY OVERLOAD
What's more American than apple pie? We're of the informal opinion that it's milkshakes, and no, we're not being paid by the American Dairy Association to say that. Imagine our glee, then, when the quietly unassuming Chile Pies opened up and — in addition to tasty treats such as empanada-like tamale hand pies and green chile pot pies with cheddar cheese crusts — an extravagant decadence known as Chile Pies' pie milkshake also made it onto the menu. That's right. It's pie. And milkshake. Any pie you want and any flavor of Three Twin's truly superior ice cream, served in a generous glass mug and topped with a billowing drift of whipped cream. Share it with a loved one to prevent instant coronary arrest, or live dangerously and gobble down a whole one yourself. You'll never look at pie à la mode with quite the same dotage, guaranteed.
