Man's Tribute to Patti LaBelle's Sweet Potato Pie has Pies Flying off Shelf

Patti LaBelle’s Sweet Potato Pie was the number one page on Walmart.com after a video posted on Facebook about the pie went viral.

James Wright Channel posted a video about liking the Patti LaBelle Sweet Potato Pie.  The pie video was shared 338,903.

Pies were flying off the shelves at a rate of one per second during a 72 hour period this weekend.

Walmart and Patti are moving quickly to bake more pies as fast as possible to re-stock shelves.

It’s estimated that two million pounds of California sweet potatoes are needed to keep up with the demand.
