The Best Grasshopper Pie
During my years at Bucknell there was no better treat than going
to Tack’s (a.k.a. Towne Tavern) and ordering the grasshopper pie
for dessert. It was partially frozen and was too good to be true.
I’ve often seen grasshopper pie o;ered elsewhere, but never
anything like the one at Tack’s. Over the years I’ve been back to
Tack’s, but it seems their grasshopper pie is a thing of the past!
