Hubig’s Pies

Savory Simon Hubig
was born in Spain...
On the way to his new country
He boarded a plane...

The year was 1922
And a good year it was...
Hubig’s Pie was born
And the world was abuzz...

The New Orleans bakery
Was in the Marigny on Dauphine...
The sweetest little bakery
The Big Easy had ever seen...

It pumped out 30,000 pies
Each day and night...
Savory Simon worked hard
To give New Orleans their daily delight...

The delicious sugary crust
Enveloped fruits from heaven...
So many flavors to chose...
More than ten, or maybe eleven...

“Rich as gold, sweeter than honey”
On a Hubig’s Pie is where I’ll spend my money...

A fire destroyed the building
In 2012...
Thoughts of rebuilding anew
The family would soon delve...

While the city approved the plans
To rebuild our favorite bakery...
The family couldn’t agree on a plan
Return dates became fakery...

And then one day
An announcement as made...
A new plan was hatched
The winning hand finally played...

Woot Woot! And Yahoo!
Who Dats began to celebrate...
Hubig’s Pies was finally returning
And never too late!

It might be a New Orleans obsession...
We cannot lie...
It just ain’t right in New Orleans
Without a Hubig’s Pie...

“Rich as gold, sweeter than honey”
On a Hubig’s Pie is where I’ll spend my money...
