Top 6 Pies Michelle Obama would Ban from the Thanksgiving Meal

Since Michelle Obama enjoys telling other people what they can and can’t eat – including banning President Obama from eating pie during the week – here’s a list of 6 different pies she would love to ban from Thanksgiving:

Pecan pie


Pecan pie is one of the most fattening pies that are traditionally made for Thanksgiving. No doubt Michelle would want you to move after eating this one!

The Elephant Bar’s Ice Cream Mud Pie


Weighing in at a whopping 2,030 calories and 91 grams of saturated fat, the Elephant Bar’s Ice Cream Mud Pie is DEFINITELY over Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move limit!

Pizza pie


A sophomore at West Florence High School in South Carolina has launched a “Bring Back The Choice of Pizza and French Fries” petition after her school district got rid of those yummy kid favorites to comply with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.

Crack pie (He said it, not me!)


While praising the White House pastry chef’s amazing pies, President Obama joked, “I don’t know what he does—whether he puts crack in them…” Michelle was not amused. “No, he doesn’t. There’s no crack in our pies,” she admonished.

Your piece of the pie


In 2008, Michelle lectured, “The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.” She wants to ban you getting your piece of pie, so she can give it to someone else.

Humble pie


Because you know nobody in the Obama White House has ever eaten any – but they all need to!

Of course, those pie bans are just for us regular Americans. Last year the Obamas feasted on NINE different pies at Thanksgiving.
