Dolly Parton leaves people shocked after selling $229 apple pie at her theme park

Dolly Parton shocked fans after the country music icon decided to sell an apple pie for $229 in her theme park.

Dollywood is designed to be a family-friendly theme park with its own waterpark, lodge, and spa, taking inspiration from its patron.

Despite this, you'll need to work longer hours than 9 to 5 in order to buy the Tennessee amusement park's expensive pie.

The baked goodie, which was posted on the official Dollywood Instagram, apparently weighs over 25 lbs (11 kg) and contains 40–50 apples.

The pie, which was made in 2010 to celebrate the park's 25th anniversary, was prepared on a cast-iron skillet and serves up to four people. (with a rather generous serving).

It’s even sparked a trend on YouTube, with fans flocking to try the delicious pie even with its stomach-turning price - just a slice will set you back $19.99.

Fans haven't been impressed with the pie, despite the fact that the first lady of country music may have supported it on TikTok.
