Oprah’s Favorite Things 2020 includes Detroit Business:  Lush Yummies Pie Co.

Dec 3, 2020

Oprah Winfrey has released her list of 72 gifts she hopes will surprise and delight her fans. Making the “nice” list this year is Detroit based Lush Yummies Pie Co. Owner Jennifer Lyle is thrilled with the announcement, but it’s not her first brush with Oprah fame. She originally made the “O” list with her classic Lemon Butta Pie – a mix between a cheesecake and a lemon meringue pie. This season, it’s her Peach Butta Cobbler that hit the chart.

“If you love peach cobbler, you are in for a true treat,” said Lyle. “My family lived by Peach Cobbler and we have taken our family recipe and turned it into the form of a warm delicious pie!”

This year’s “Favorite Things” list includes a special focus on Black-owned businesses.

“Because so many people want to support Black lives any way they can, we’ve found dozens of absolutely gorgeous gifts from Black-owned businesses that deserve to be celebrated, because we believe Black lives—and Black businesses—matter,” said Winfrey. “So for 2020, most of my Favorite Things are from Black-owned or -led companies.”

Lush Yummies Pie Co. received a $25,000 cash award from Motor City Match in 2019 and also received a space award in Round 9.
