Missouri pie auctions for $3100 in bid to set world record
Los Angeles, July 9 (ANI): Rich Hill, a small town that stretches over most of western Missouri, has set a possible world record for the highest price paid at an auction for a single pie.
For more than 135 years, the small town in Bates County, Mo., has held an Independence Day celebration that has turned into a multiday patriotic event.
Jerry Mumma, a Rich Hill farmer, paid 3,100 dollars Friday night for a peanut-butter banana pie on a Hammond Pretzel crust, baked by his granddaughter, Jara Mumma.
"It's rich, peanut buttery, and it tastes pretty good," Jara told the Los Angeles Times.
"The pretzel's pretty salty, so it's a contrast."
According to the Guinness World Records' website, the most expensive pie ever sold cost 8,195 pounds, (then 14,260 dollars) at the Fence Gate Inn in Lancashire, U.K. - a meat pie filled with Japanese wagyu beef fillet and topped with edible gold leaf.
But Hacker said he double-checked with Guinness officials and found that the most expensive pie sold at auction cost 1,250 pounds, or roughly 1,935 dollars at today's exchange rate. (ANI)
