Pecan Pie Vending Machines = Texas
Well, you must be in Texas when you can pick up a pecan pie in a vending machine.
I grew up in a town that had a drive-thru liquor store. So when they said that you shouldn't drink and drive, I was like, well how else are you going to get a bottle of whiskey unless you're driving?
That was in North Dakota, where the weather can kill you in a matter of minutes. So when it's 70 below wind chill and you need to warm your insides, it's just normal to drive through the liquor store for a quick bottle (bottles) of warmth.
Well, now I live in Texas - a state with dry counties. So when it comes to "strange normals", they developed Austin. And in and around Austin (Bastrop) it seems you can buy pecan pies from a vending machine. So now young kids will think that buying a whole pecan pie from a vending machine is normal.
Thanks Austin!! Y’all have me hopping between soccer games to restock the vending machine!! Plenty stocked for chocolate pecans for Easter baskets and pecan pies for dessert tomorrow! #vendingmachine #pecanvendingmachine #berdollpecans #beecavesroad #my4thbaby #berdolls #pecanpie #happyeaster #backtosoccergames
That's the weirdest thing. They say that I can't say Pecan correctly. It seems Pe in Texas is pronounce Paa. And the "can" is pronounced "con". Yea. And I'm the fool that calls it Pee-Can Pie. Well, if you get a craving it's nice to have the vending machine option. Though it seems a bit of jump from Snickers and Reese's to a whole fricken pie.
"Hey honey, pick up a movie and pie for tonight. I think there's a couple machines off Highway 71"
