Frisbie's pies 1920s delivery truck


The Frisbie Pie Company was founded in 1871 by William Russell Frisbie in Bridgeportmarker, Connecticutmarker, when he bought and renamed a branch of the Olds Baking Company. It supplied pies to Connecticut retailers and restaurants, including the Yale Universitymarker campus. Yale students discovered that the pie tins, inverted, had an airfoil shape which enabled them to be thrown in various trajectories by a skilled person. This eventually evolved into the Frisbee trademarked flying disc and many imitators.

Frisbie brand pies are still produced in Worcestermarker, Massachusettsmarker by Table Talk.

In popular culture

In Back to the Future Part III, Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) while time-travelling to the Wild West, knocks a gun from the hand of outlaw Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson) using a Frisbie pie plate.
