Hubig's is returning one of its historic hand pie flavors to shelves next week: peach.

Driving the news: The peach pies will be a test run with limited availability starting Monday, Hubig's Pies co-owner Drew Ramsey tells Axios.

  • But don't worry, Ramsey says. "We're getting more peach and we're going to cook more and do more batches."

The backdrop: Hubig's is slowly rolling out the return of its core hand pie flavors, with apple, lemon and chocolate already available in all distribution spots.

  • Ramsey didn't want to speculate on the next flavor — coconut? pineapple? — and said it will depend on market availability.

Flashback: The factory that stamped out New Orleans' beloved hand pies burned down in 2012.

  • It took years before the company was able to return, finally doing so to great fanfare — and delicious appreciation — in 2022.
