Pillsbury Best Flour and Golden Glow Pie display sign

By: Anonymous (not verified) | Item of the Day | March 14, 2023

It's Pi Day, 3/14, and as a onetime major flour milling center, Minnesota has many reasons to celebrate pie! (The crust part, at least.) This three-dimensional point-of-sale display sign was created by Pillsbury Best Flour in about 1950 and promotes Golden Glow Pie.
