Somehow, for people who don't like coconut, we sure seem to be consuming a lot of it lately.
This time, Vodka found the triple coconut cream pie with which Delilah Winder is obsessed at Ritz Seafood in Voorhees, NJ. Well, Vodka didn't so much find it, as her enabling mother did. It seems mildly telling that said pie was featured on the OBSESSIONS episode of Best Thing I Ever Ate, as the mission of this blog has taken on a family-wide monomania in Vodka's household.

SHE WAS FAST ASLEEP.
|Who Was In Charge of the Pies?!|
"EXCUSE ME," she repeated. The figure popped awake and groggily instructed another suddenly-available staff member to fetch a piece of triple coconut cream pie to-go. When paying for the $8 slice, my mom discovered, via newspaper clippings hanging at the entrance, that Rip Van Winkle is none other than the owner of Ritz Seafood.

But is this coconut cream pie worth waking up for each day? Yes, Owner of Ritz Seafood. Yes, it is.
