High 5 Pie Now Serving Shakes

A slice of pie + ice cream = pie shake

By Christopher Werner June 17, 2011

Better blended? High 5 Pie thinks so.

Pairing ice cream with pie is not a novel idea—what’s a slice of apple without a melty scoop to boot?—but blending the two, that’s something new. At least it is in this city, where pie comes on a stick, in a jar, or in cute bite-sized morsels, but rarely by means of a straw. (Lunchbox Laboratory at one point (still does?) had pie-inspired varieties.)

Treading this untrodden territory is Capitol Hill’s High 5 Pie, now offering pie shakes. For $7 you can choose a slice of your liking and mix it with snickerdoodle or vanilla bean ice cream from Bluebird.

Genius or not so much? Curt, Mike, and friends vote the former.
