Support The PIE-NOT Kickstarter Campaign!

I loved the PIE-NOT concept from the beginning. Savory, handheld meat pies are as good as it gets with to-go meals. A working lunch with one true Aussie taught me to dab a little ketchup for tasty flavor bombs. Pair that with a cuppa Bun coffee, and I'm good for hours. It's no wonder they made my top five last year. Now, they're looking to expand.

For those not familiar with Kickstarter, it's a way for businesses and individuals to fund projects they otherwise wouldn't have the money for. Provide bucks to a creator, and you're considered a backer. Even a dollar is better than no dollar. And it's more than giving your hard-earned money-- it's helping a dream become a reality. In a nutshell, it's a badass way of making things happen.

What Jai Snowdon and Ryan Lopiccolo want to do next is launch both a catering line of baby pies and a selection of bake-at-home Aussie treats. They've got under 30 days to reach their $50,000 goal. If you need a little more convincing, no problem. They've got a sweet video to share with you on their Kickstarter page.

Backers can earn coffee mugs and catered meals of their new line. I like the top backer incentive: creating and naming your own pie. Your pledge will go towards doubling their cold room storage, purchasing specialized equipment as well as packaging materials. Come on, show PIE-NOT some love and drop some coin.
