Dollywood Fans Shocked to See $229 Pie at Theme Park Restaurant

Dollywood, the amusement park that celebrates all things Dolly Parton, recently baked up a storm, not with a new song but with a pie — a $229 apple pie, to be precise. Yes, you read that correctly. In a park known for its roller coasters and country charm, it’s a pie that’s now taking center stage, leaving fans and TikTok viewers wide-eyed and perhaps a little hungry.

The park’s special apple pie, which has become an internet sensation thanks to a viral TikTok video by user @stonewall_kelsey, isn’t your grandma’s Sunday bake. This culinary behemoth is made from 40-50 apples, weighs a hefty 25 pounds, and comes with a price tag that might make you think it’s sprinkled with gold dust. For $229, not only do you get this colossal dessert, but you also get to keep the skillet it’s baked in — because, let’s face it, who doesn’t want a skillet that’s cradled a small orchard’s worth of apples?

If shelling out over two hundred bucks for a pie sounds a bit steep, fear not. A single slice of this apple extravaganza is available for a mere $20, a more palatable option for those who prefer their bank accounts to remain in the green.

The TikTok clip showcasing this extravagant pie has garnered over 3.3 million views, sparking a flurry of comments from users flabbergasted by the dessert’s hefty price tag. While some joked that the pie should be encased in gold for that price, others pointed out the value of the skillet, hinting that, when you break down the cost per pound and factor in the cookware, it might not be such a bad deal after all.

? 9 to 5 – Dolly Parton

Comparisons were even drawn to Disney, with one user suggesting that the entertainment giant would charge an arm and a leg (or perhaps a whole castle) for a similar treat. This pie, it seems, is not just a dessert but a talking point, stirring up debates about the price of unique culinary experiences and the value of a good old-fashioned apple pie.

In the end, whether you’re a die-hard Dolly fan willing to splurge on this pie or a skeptical onlooker raising an eyebrow at the price, there’s no denying that Dollywood knows how to create buzz, both on and off the stage. So, if you ever find yourself at the park, maybe swing by and judge for yourself — is this pie a chart-topping hit or a one-hit wonder in the world of theme park cuisine?
