Dangerously Delicious Pies. Back in our nation’s capital for the week for ‘work’ (and by WORK I mean my DAY JOB) and made sure to make an effort to work my way down to one of Washington D.C.’s most prestigious pie shops – Dangerously Delicious Pies. Oh, they had great pies (I picked up a blackberry while I was there), but there was even more going with Dangerously Delicious Pies than I realized!
First off, I love the ambiance of Dangerously Delicious Pies. Its got a great and unique look inside the pie shop, and one that really set it apart from other shops I have visited.
There was ‘some’ seating that I saw, but not much, which gave me the impression that most just pies ordered for pickup. The staff were ultra friendly, and were genuinely eager, to listen to my personal story and path taken toward opening my own catering service back home.
As you can probably tell, I really REALLY liked the Dangerously Delicious Pie packaging. The branding was top tier!
Many probably don’t pay much attention to the box you pick a pie up in, and that’s understandable. For me, however, I love great design and especially uniquely branded packaging, like the box my blackberry pie came in from Dangerously Delicious Pies.
It was a heavy cardboard carton with a comprehensive list of my fruit and savory pies around the edge of the packaging. The website address was emblazoned on one edge as well. And on the lid, an all black, branded Dangerously Delicious Pie logo design. I loved it! Yea, I’m weird like that!
Despite there being a rather lengthy list of pies, typically sold by Dangerously Delicious Pies, there was probably only about half of those ready to go in the shop.
I had a hard time deciding between the Caramel Apple Crumble, Mixed Berry, Blueberry and Blackberry pies on-hand, but ultimately chose the Blackberry.
Crust was both plentiful (pretty thick and tender) and tasty, and the blackberry filling was deep!
Not sure when I’ll be able to make my way back to Washington D.C., so I made sure to make the most of my opportunity, and visit Dangerously Delicious Pies.
What’s the message here? Never take any day (or any THING) for granted. If you’re ever on a trip (personal or business), always live every day like it the last. Take advantage of your opportunities as you never know when you’ll get another.
