One of New Orleans’ most incredible confections is coming back.
Starting on Monday, Hubig’s Pies are set to begin getting back to stores nearby. Owner Andrew Ramsey set up a booth at the Whitney Bank on South Carrollton Avenue and started selling at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.
“I am overjoyed to bring Hubig’s pies back to the market. We are thankful for the patience and loyalty of the people of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. We’ve been on the receiving end of so much good will. We encourage our community to continue to support that which they cherish,” Ramsey said.
In July 2012, a five alarm fire torched the bakery, making Hubig’s Pies not be accessible for a decade. Hubig’s Pies initially opened in New Orleans in 1921, and Ramsey purchased the organization in 2019.
As per Ramsey, the new pies will involve similar recipes and formulas as the past iterations, and that the pies will be indistinguishable.
Apple and lemon flavored pies will be the first to be once again introduced. Chocolate, coconut, peach, pineapple, and seasonal offerings including sweet potato, strawberry, banana, and blueberry.
