Local Utah pie shop sells pastries to raise money for Ukraine


SOUTH JORDAN, Utah“There are countless stories of Utahns stepping up to help the Ukrainian people. A bakery in southern Jordan is now offering a sweet gesture: for this week only, they’re selling ‘Ukraine Flag Flakies’, with all proceeds going to Ukraine.

John Mercier opened Flake Pie Company amid the pandemic in November 2020.

“It was definitely a risk. We felt it was something that the personal-sized pies were something unique.

Baking up delicious pies, full of goodness and fun, clever names like Peanut Butter Is My Jam or When Chocolate Meets Caramel – Flake Pie satisfies people’s sweet cravings.

Mercier watched with the rest of the world the attack on Ukraine.

“We are very saddened as a company.”

And wanted to spread some joy.

“We created this special Ukrainian Flag Flakie. There are blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and we put that inside.

The frosting is blue and yellow representing the Ukrainian flag. They cost $3.50 each or $12.50 for a pack of four. All profits will benefit the Ukrainian people.

“We are super overwhelmed with the outpouring of support for this. We sold just over 200 yesterday alone,” Mercier said.

Mercier has no connection with Ukraine. He just felt compelled to serve a little joy.

“We just felt like it was time. We don’t want to wait another day.

Proceeds* will go to the Care Ukraine Crisis Fund. You can enter the store at 1655 Towne Center Dr. in southern Jordan or order online at www.flakepie.com.

The deal is through this week only.
