Patti LaBelle’s sweet potato pies are selling like hot cakes over at Walmart. The retailer is reportedly scrambling to restock shelves with the 71-year-old diva’s deserts. The pies which were sold exclusively at Walmart sold at “a rate of one per second during the 72 hour period from Thursday through Saturday,” they report.
Why the madness surrounding her tasty treats? No doubt a huge part is due to James Wright. He posted a hilarious talk-singing review of the pies on his Facebook that has generated nearly 10 million views. Ever wanted to sing like the “Godmother of Soul?” Wright jokingly claims LaBelle’s pies will help you do that.
With Thanksgiving just around the corner, good luck trying to get your lips on the desert. On eBay, they’re on sale for $40- nearly 12 times the original price. Walmart estimates two million pounds of California sweet potatoes are needed to keep up with the demand.
Definitely check out Wright’s review below, if you haven’t already done so. It’s hilarious.
