Delta Dental’s annual Thanksgiving Pie Survey breaks down America’s favorites

By Nerisa Eugenia Waterman From WN

According to the annual Delta Dental Thanksgiving pie survey out today, when it comes to Thanksgiving pies, Americans are staunch traditionalists.

The survey has been tracking this key facet of America’s sweet tooth for the last three years and Pumpkin pie reigns supreme once again, with 36 percent of American adults saying it’s their favorite (beating out the next pie in line by more than double).

The Thanksgiving go-to pie finds heaviest favoritism among Baby Boomers (41 percent) and, while it’s still tops with the group, finds the lowest support among Gen-Xers (28 percent). Regionally, pumpkin pie sees the most popularity in the West (44 percent) and the least in the South (31 percent).

Pecan pie (17 percent), which again garnered the number two spot, finds waning support from just one group, Millennials (10 percent).
The widest favoritism gap between the sexes belongs to apple pie, which snagged the number three spot, with 17 percent of men saying it’s their top Thanksgiving pie compared to 11 percent of women.
Consistently scraping the bottom of the barrel with all age groups, regions and sexes, is strawberry pie.
“Whatever favorite pie, or pies, you indulge in this Thanksgiving, remember to take the time to brush and floss away the sugary remnants. A healthy smile is something to be thankful for too,” said Bill Kohn, DDS, Delta Dental Plans Association’s vice president of dental science and policy.
Delta Dental Plans Association, based in Oak Brook, Ill., is the not-for-profit national association of the 39 independent Delta Dental companies. Through its companies, Delta Dental is the nation’s leading dental benefits provider, covering more than 75 million Americans, and offering the country’s largest dental network with roughly 152,000 participating dentists.
