Now more than ever, Americans are a fractious group. We bicker (a lot) about politics, sexuality, money, morals and art. And while there’s much disharmony, there is one subject on which we can find near universal agreement—our beloved, famously popular and even patriotic confection, pie. Though we didn’t invent it (Thanks, ancient Greeks), Americans sure do love us some pie. We write songs about it, and it’s embedded in our lexicon (“easy as pie”).
