Welcome to a quirky and “crumbly” tale of Frisbie’s Pies, where pie tins and frisbees joined in a wild dance from 1871 to 1958. Hang on as we dive into the story of how play and work at a pie factory influenced legendary frisbee moments!

Frisbie Who?

The stage is set. It’s 1871, and the Frisbie Pie Company is ready to conquer the world – or at least people’s stomachs. But hold on a moment! How did pie tins from a pie factory become a new trend among students? The story goes that the clever minds at Yale and Dartmouth, instead of just eating the pies, threw the pie tins during their breaks. Legend has it that a roar of “Frisbie” filled the air as they sailed through the room. A kind of euphoric pie tin disco, if you ask me!

The Great Frisbee Mystery

Now, here’s where things get interesting. While Yale and Dartmouth claim to be frisbee pioneers, there are also other universities, bakers, and truck drivers boasting about tossing the first frisbees. Who is the true master of the flying pie tin universe? Maybe it was all a grand conspiracy, a collective imagination created by Wham-O as part of their brilliant marketing strategy. Myths or not, one thing is for sure: Everyone loved throwing frisbees!

Frisbie’s Farewell

All good things must come to an end, and so did the Frisbie Pie Company in 1958 when the pie world kneaded its final dough. But fear not, for the frisbee’s adventure had only just begun. Wham-O stepped onto the stage, acquiring the rights to the “Frisbee” trademark, and the rest is history – or legend, depending on who you ask.

Frisbee Galore

Frisbie Pies come in more varieties than you can imagine! From 6-hole and 12-hole to small letters, large letters, F-letter, and deposit editions – it’s like a frisbee menu where you can choose your favorite slice of legendary airy history. But you’ll need a hefty wallet if you want to get your hands on one – for the old originals have become quite valuable over time.

So, the next time you toss a frisbee and shout “Frisbie” with a smile, remember that you are part of a crazy, fun, and “crumbly” tale that started with pie tins and ended up conquering the skies. Throw with joy and let the legend continue!
