NY bakery chain renames “Crack Pie” to something less offensive

National

NEW YORK (CNN) — Say goodbye to the Crack Pie. The famous New York treat, served at the Milk Bar Bakery has a new name- the Milk Mar Pie.

Bakery founder Christina Tosi says changing the name is “The right decision.” The Crack Pie has drawn criticism for its name, reportedly a reference to the highly-addictive crack cocaine.

Last month, a food writer for the Boston Globe wrote that “a bakery would never try to market something called Fentanyl Cake.”

The dessert in question is a butter pie made with an oat crust, and has been part of the Milk Bar’s menu from day one.
