It’s being called Pastygate.
The British government has slapped a 20% value-added tax on pasties and has cut taxes on corporations.
Regardless of what they call it in the U.K., they’re calling it a boom in Calumet.
Pasty Central ships pasties to just about any door in the U.S.
General manager Charlie Hopper says they’ve shipped half a million hand–held meat and vegetable pies over the years to all 50 states from their bakery.
He’s expecting April to be a very strong month.
But for the working class in Britain — sorry, but Pasty Central doesn’t ship overseas.
