Would You Like to Eat Cranberry Pickle Pie?

The question circulating the Internet is “Is cranberry and pickle pie a Utah thing?”

For the answer, let us consult Betteridge’s Law of Headlines, which asserts that if a headline ends with a question mark, the answer is “no.” It’s a journalist’s way of getting attention while not standing firm under a claim that is obviously untrue. In this case, although there is apparently a tradition of making pickle pies in Utah, there is no inclusion of cranberries to the recipe, which consists primarily of sweet pickles, not dill.

Betteridge’s Law also applies to this blog post.
