Back in the day when dinosaurs walked the earth, and I was a teenager, they used to sell Georgie Pie.
Georgie Pie , for those non NZ er’s was a pie franchise that was said to be NZ’s answer within NZ to Mc’ds, Pizza Hut etc.
If i remember I think too they were mainly in Auckland.
It was a pie takeaway chain like McDonald’s and cheap as chips!!!
Pies, chips, sweet pies, milkshakes and pies and more pies…
They were brought out/ stopped trading in the late nineties by McDonald’s of all people!!
Then it was decided, a month or so ago, that McD’s would trial selling them again BUT BUT BUT
The blessed $1 pies will now be $4.50!!!
Part of their appeal was the price, I mean we were not talking gourmet pie time here!
But they were always filling, hot, tasty and cheap…
The NZ equivalent of a scoop of hot chips!
Anyhow they started selling them last night and after being SO SO excited for weeks, I had bloody forgotten.
Did I mention that we live 5 minutes from where they are being sold at only one of 2 sites in NZ???
I have shamed Georgie pie….
Tomorrow, tomorrow, there’s always tomorrow:)
Guess what I will be doing tomorrow???
Yep, it’s on my running route, on my way to work, next to our supermarket….
Be rude not to go after all that effort to bring the little beauties back….
