    Do you love and prefer pumpkin pie or are you a sick weirdo who prefers the objectively inferior sweet potato pie?

    Oooooh man this is sooooo close.


    Sweet Potato pie. It's harder to come by around here. There are a few soul food places where I can get it and a proper peach cobbler too ( which I much prefer to both pumpkin and sweet potato pie )

  3. Pumpkin Pie by far. Sweet Potato pie is just like methadone for when I can't get my fix of the real thing.

    Sweet potato. I have been getting mine through a co-worker, whose friend bakes them. It lessens the Thanksgiving cooking load on my GF and I.

    Wholesome southern versus join a cult and have your blood turn black.

    The choice is clear.

    I like them both. I have a Wal Mart "Patti La Belle" sweet potato pie and a pumpkin cobbler at home right now.

    They also make sweet potato pecan pie and a variety of other cobblers. They are really good. I usually wait until they mark them down late in the evening and put them on the day old or "we made too much" rack.

    I think sweet potato pie must have been concocted by someone who actually wanted to make pumpkin pie, but was terrible at identifying pumpkins.

    I chose pumpkin. Had to go against Randy on this one.
    I was going to quote you @Funky Ghost, but that other video looks freaky.

    Sweet Potato for me....
    and the wife and kids
    and the rest of my family and friends
    I played bass in the Philadelphia Presbytery for eight years, felt like I was on a sweet potato drip during those years. Moved to Wisconsin and started suffering from withdrawal until Patti LaBelle made them available at Wal-Mart:D
    What I really miss is sweet potato cheese cake from Spicer's bakery on Ogontz Ave, yummm goodie:smug:

    This is about pie though, not cake.

    pumpkin pie is one of the best pies. it's right up there with apple, cherry, and peach!

    sweet potato pie sucks. unless you're hungry and your relatives have eaten all of the pumpkin pies. even then: you learn to associate its flavor with the frustration of having too many relatives over at one time. which sucks.
