Pie Vs. Cake: Which One Is Better For You?

Today, we are targeting the age old question: pie vs. cake? If you’re one of those people that say “who cares?” then maybe you don’t know the depth of this argument. For decades people have been going back and forth debating which one is better for you, just so simply they can eat more of it.  Yes, it goes even deeper than that.

Just think:

Apple vs. orange
Grape Jelly vs. Strawberry Jelly
Vanilla vs. Chocolate
Clinton vs. Bush

Yes, pie vs. cake is just as important too (can you tell I’m passionate about this?).  At any rate, lets look at the numbers:
