In 2012 Put A Egg On It editor Ralph McGinnis ate his last Hubig's apple pie, which had been sitting in his freezer in New York, when he heard about the fire that destroyed the Hubig's factory in New Orleans. The pies were a favorite in the city since 1922 – and Ralph’s preferred after-school snack as he walked home through the French Quarter. The fate of the company is still uncertain. All New Orleanians feel great love and pride over every locally-produced tradition — a sentiment that inspires Put A Egg On It to cover regional packaged food in every issue. Hubig’s was one of the first such products featured in the magazine.

This Risograph print was drawn by Put A Egg On It editor Ralph McGinnis from his saved Hubig’s pie wrapper, and produced in collaboration with Constance in New Orleans. The edition of 100 is signed and numbered by the artist.
