When I told my friend that my family and I were moving from Huntersville to Mooresville, he said "There's this pie place you've gotta check out..." I may have blacked-out at that point, because I don't remember anything else he said after that. A PIE PLACE?!?! Seriously?
As it turned out, that "Pie Place" is actually the Carolina Pie Company. And, as luck would have it, it's just a couple of minutes from my home -- which makes it a very dangerous location for my waist-line, indeed.
The Carolina Pie Company isn't easy to find. It's around a corner of a non-descript strip-mall. And it's toward the back, next to a side-exit of a salon. Aside from the green and white awning, it doesn't look like much from the outside. I mean, how can such a plain outside contain so much yummyness? But trust me, this place has amazing stuff.
Once you get inside, you can tell it's a legit bakery. There are trays, racks, stainless steel tables, and the sight & smell of freshly baked pies. Often the pies are still cooling, so they haven't been boxed-up yet.

There are a LOT of different pies that they make, and on any given day, the selections might change. But there are many options that seem to be consistently made. And yesterday, my wife and I decided to have one of our favorites: Bumbleberry Pie.
I had never had Bumbleberry Pie until I visited the Carolina Pie Company about 2 yrs ago. It's your standard berry pie, but made with strawberry, blueberry, blackberry and raspberry. As you bite into the pie, you can see and taste these whole berries (the strawberries appear to be sliced in half). But all together, they have an amazing taste. And then combine that melody of flavors with the buttery flaky crust that tastes like it comes from your grandmother's kitchen, and you've got a combination that will make you want to eat the ENTIRE pie yourself.
So, if you're looking for a pie, whether it's for the holidays or just a treat for yourself, I strongly recommend you visit the Carolina Pie Company. Your taste-buds will thank you.
Atmosphere: N/A (there's nowhere to sit)
One pie, with tax is just over $20.
Conclusion: Amazing pies baked daily. Often the inventory is limited or gone by the end of the day. So, get there before it's gone. Or, better yet, call ahead and have them reserve one for you. I visit far more than I should.
