Ahhh, Pi Day. This mathematic holiday, which is on March 14th every year, celebrates the most beguiling of mathematical constants: the irrational number 3.14159….well, you get the picture. This year, Trader Joe’s wants to celebrate Pi Day not by forcing you to perform a bunch of confusing grocery store-based math, but rather by selling their famous pumpkin pies for the incredibly low price of just $1.99 a pop.

Our 9-inch, 27-ounce #Pie is made with real #pumpkin pureé spiced with cinnamon, ginger & cloves—all nestled in a tender, fluted crust. Just slice & serve, or get creative with the ideas now featured on traderjoes dot com. ~ * Pi (3.14) – PIE’ (115)/100 = 1.99
That’s a hell of a deal for 27-ounce, 9-inch pie. If you feel little weird about eating your pie straight up, seeing as how it’s pumpkin pie and we’re thoroughly enmeshed in spring, TJ’s has a few serving suggestions: cut your pie in chunks and dip them in chocolate to make an elegant, bite-sized dessert, blend a slice of pie with ice cream and milk to make an out-of-this-world milkshake, or simply serve with a dollop of 3-maple spiced whipped cream.
Trader Joe’s isn’t the only one offering up deals for this delicious holiday.
