Not Pi

Bishops Chocolate French Silk Pie.  Never had the pleasure myself, but I understand it was a delicious treat.  Did you know it was invented by a guy who lived in Iowa?  Lester R. Hendrickson was not Iowa-born but he lived here for 40 years.  Not only is the Chocolate French Silk Pie to his credit, he also worked in one of the state's most famous bakeries.  Barbara's Bake Shop!  Can you believe it?  He died in West Des Moines in 1989, having made the world a better place.  Thank you, Lester.
