If you’re looking for a reason to celebrate, there is something on the National Day Calendar for nearly every day of the year. May 8 happens to be National Coconut Cream Pie Day. If you’re wondering why you should celebrate coconut cream pie, just consider this:

  • buttery flakey crust
  • luscious coconut custard
  • fluffy decadent whipped cream
  • toasted shreds of yummy coconut on top

What’s not to love?

Make it a road trip to a nearby West Virginia or Pennsylvania city for some homemade pie goodness.
