Talking With Our Mouths Full: Four & Twenty Blackbirds

Jul 1, 2016

Ready for some sweet talk? We recently sat down with sisters Emily Elsen and Melissa Elsen, founders of the celebrated pie shop, Four & Twenty Blackbirds, in their Brooklyn production kitchen.

We partner with these pie mavens on our Blueberry Pie Oh My shake ($5.79) and concrete (Single: $4.59 / Double: $6.79), currently spinning at all U.S. Shacks (‘cept stadiums and ballparks) for a limited time. We take a whole slice of their insanely delicious pie and spin it at high-speeds until it’s mixed-in with our rich frozen custard. Sound like something you’re into? We also serve seasonal “Pie Oh My”  concretes at our three Brooklyn Shacks (Flatbush, Downtown Brooklyn and DUMBO) year-round!

No matter how you slice it, Four & Twenty Blackbirds pies are unique, fresh and delicious. We talk origins, best-sellers, the NYC influence and, most importantly, sample some pie! Watch the interview.
