Several patrons of our store keep asking, "How did you come up with the oatmeal cream pies?" The truth is, Little Debbie came up with them, we just wanted them to be homemade. But, why did we choose Oatmeal Cream Pies? After being at a friend's house for a Superbowl party and having his amazing mom make homemade moon pies, it got me thinking. "What's the one thing like that, that I would want homemade?" It did not take long for me to decide, I love oatmeal cream pies! I still remember living off them in college when my meal credits ran out.
With any great idea comes the desire to perfect it. A young lady that was working for me, Devin Sullivan, kindly said, "I can do that." Devin immediately got promoted to dessert girl. In our book, we might as well start calling her Wonder Woman.
Round 1. Round 2. and then Round 3...
Devin found perfection and created what employees now call OCP (Oatmeal Cream Pies). I never could have imagined the full experience of the pies. We taste tested them with several regulars and everyone was immediately hooked. To this day, we are still hooked, The city of Atlanta is hooked too. This became clear when our Oatmeal Cream Pies took home the award for Best Dessert at Taste of Atlanta in 2014.
The life of the Oatmeal Cream Pie is still growing, and so is its fame. In the meantime, we are working on a shipping process as well as a couple of new and different flavors. It's amazing how one idea has changed us so much. A huge thank you to Devin aka Wonder Woman.
