COSMOPOLITAN OF LAS VEGASMilk Bar, the bakery and ice cream shop, decided to change the name of one of its most iconic dishes. Founder and pastry chef Christina Tosi opted to change the trademarked name of Crack Pie, one of the core recipes that rocketed Milk Bar to massive popularity, to Milk Bar Pie after increasing pressure from customers and the national food community. Tosi posted a message posted to Milk Bar’s public blog, explaining that “the old name was getting in the way” of the bakery’s core mission “to spread joy and inspire celebration.” [Eater]
