Raleigh, N.C. – Just in time for Thanksgiving, PETA has selected the top 10 vegan pies from restaurants and bakeries across the U.S., and Raleigh’s The Remedy Diner’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie has secured a spot on the list. The award-winning dessert comprises a graham cracker crust and chocolate–peanut butter filling and is topped with crushed peanuts, coconut whipped cream, and chocolate drizzle.
Other vegan sweet treats offered at The Remedy Diner include Coconut Cream Pie, Sopapilla “Cheesecake,” Key Lime Pie, Pumpkin Cheesecake, and more.
“The Remedy Diner’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie is a delicious and animal-friendly way to end any Thanksgiving meal,” says PETA President Ingrid Newkirk. “All the decadent 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; Beet Box Bakery & Cafe in Denver; Reverie Bakeshop in Richardson, Texas; Sweet Surrender Dessert Cafe in Louisville, Kentucky; Acme Pie Co. in Arlington, Virginia; Third Coast Bakery in Traverse City, Michigan; Veggie Galaxy in Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Sweet Freedom 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.
