Where to find Hubig’s Pies in New Orleans, Baton Rouge | Where NOLA Eats

by admin

It’s been a little more than two weeks since Hubig’s Pies made its long-awaited return, and production is beginning to ramp up and distribution of the pies back to stores is gradually expanding.

Meanwhile, the hunt to find the pies amid sporadic availability and quick sell-outs has led to group sleuthing, including a Facebook group dedicated to sharing tips and sightings in the wild.

Here’s the latest on where you can find them in the New Orleans metro area.

Hubig’s said from the start that its distribution plan was to begin in the center of New Orleans and then expand to other areas “concentrically.”

It was the Rouses grocery Uptown on Tchoupitoulas Street where the first delivery of pies was spotted on Nov. 9, and they then began appearing (and swiftly disappearing) from other groceries in the city that day.

Now distribution has begun radiating out to include the North Shore, river parishes and elsewhere.

Groceries carrying the pies include

  • Rouses
  • Canseco’s
  • Dorignac’s
  • Robért Fresh Market
  • Zuppardo’s
  • Breaux Mart
  • Winn Dixie

Before the 2012 fire that knocked Hubig’s Pies out of action for so long, they were found all across the region. The company is slowly building back that territory. Hubig’s owner Drew Ramsey said earlier that “(i)f you were a Hubig’s customer, you’re going to be again.”

In addition the metro New Orleans and the North Shore, distribution has been growing at groceries in the Houma / Thibodaux area and in Baton Rouge.

Convenience stores

In addition to groceries, convenience stores were once a reliable place to find Hubig’s Pies. Distribution has begun to expand to these stores again in New Orleans and will expand, according to a distributor.

Limited flavors 

Hubig’s is starting with apple and lemon, two of its most popular varieties, and these remain the only two now available.

The company’s other “staple” flavors will soon follow, starting with peach and pineapple, followed by chocolate and coconut.

Limited-run flavors will also return in their seasonal progression, with sweet potato, cherry, strawberry, blueberry and banana.

Hubig’s pies’ return comes after the company factory burned down in 2012, and locals are on the prowl for the treat.
