Louisville, Ky. – Just in time for Thanksgiving, PETA has selected the top 10 vegan pies from restaurants and bakeries across the U.S., and the Cranberry Walnut Pie from Louisville’s Sweet Surrender Dessert Cafe secured a spot on the list. The award-winning pie is filled with crunchy walnuts and ripe cranberries for a distinctive tart yet sweet flavor.
Sweet Surrender Dessert Cafe also offers other delicious vegan pies, including a Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie, an Apple Pie, and a Sour Cherry Pie.
“This festive holiday Cranberry Walnut Pie is as delicious as it is kind to animals, and it’s the perfect way to end a Thanksgiving meal,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “All the pleasing pies on PETA’s list show how easy it is to give everyone—including chickens and cows—something to be thankful for.”
Not only are vegan desserts free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol, they also spare animals immense suffering: In the dairy industry, calves are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth, and in the egg industry, parts of chickens’ beaks are cut off with a hot blade when they’re just a few days old.
Rounding out PETA’s list are pies from Fork My Life in Sarasota, Florida; Green Heart Bakery in Tucson, Arizona; Petunia’s Pies & Pastries in Portland, Oregon; Magpies Softserve in Los Angeles; The Remedy Diner in Raleigh, North Carolina; Reverie Bakeshop in Richardson, Texas; Acme Pie Co. in Arlington, Virginia; Third Coast Bakery in Traverse City, Michigan; Beet Box Bakery & Cafe in Denver; Veggie Galaxy in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Sweet Freedom Bakery in Philadelphia. Each eatery will receive a framed certificate.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat” and which opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview—also offers free vegan Thanksgiving recipes on its website.
