This week, we give thanks for all the great things in our lives. In particular, we give thanks for pie. Who doesn’t love pie?  Pie is a many splendored thing.

What kind of pie you prefer can actually say quite a bit about you. Today, in our Pie Wars Interest Graph Series, we honor the stars of the season — Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie — and take a look at the recipe of interests that make up Apple and Pumpkin Pie eaters.

First on the menu, we have the All-American Classic. Dig in.


  • Apple pie eaters are business-minded. They demonstrate a strong interest in money, finance and sales.
  • They love fast food. Those that love apple pie demonstrate a strong interest in pizza (Papa John’s in particular), McDonald’s,  doughnuts, cheeseburgers and french fries.
  • Fans of apple pie prefer to shop inexpensively. They have a strong interest in Costco, Walmart and discounts.
  • They have a wide variety of wellness-related interests with psychiatry, exercise and weight loss at the top of the list.

This season, everything that wasn’t nailed down ended up pumpkin spiced. Next, we look at the original sweet ambrosia that launched a thousand memes.


  • Pumpkin Pie folk are a festive lot. They have a strong interest in Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving and Harvest Festivals.
  • They love to be entertained. Pumpkin pie eaters have a very strong interest in entertainment of all kinds. They are most interested in movies– the finest accompaniment to a food coma.
  • Although they love the beach, they also have a stronger affinity for the desert than their apple pie kin.
  • They’re sentimental. Pumpkin pie eaters have a stronger interest in relationship topics like sex, love, marriage and friendship than they do in any business-related topic.

Now that we’ve had a double helping of interest pie graphs, time for some after dinner trivia. Let’s play Apples to Pumpkins, how do the interest levels of Apple Pie and Pumpkin Pie fans compare on the same topics?

Now you have some speaking points to break the ice in the event of a newcomer or an awkward silence at the Thanksgiving table this year. Hope you have some good times this year that bring everyone together, like these interest graphs. Happy Thanksgiving!

Now… would you mind helping with the dishes?
