  4. maybe special order only. they’re a helluva lot of work and definitely a collaborative production, not solely a bikebasketpies.

    i’m so glad you (and everyone else!) liked them!

    Hey Allan and Kevin,

    Great job as judges promoting your friends’ business by voting them #1! Did you not think about utterly transparent this appears to everyone else? You’ve completely discredited the entire “competition”, and showing everyone else that they shouldn’t even have bothered — it was rigged all along.

      I also didn’t think the pies were the best Mac n Cheese there (sorry, Bike Basket Pies).

      Dude, Cat, your M&C just wasn’t that good. Do a better job next time and stop blaming people that your cooking sucked.
