Orange Is The New Black's 'Crazy Pyes' Food Truck Rolls Through L.A. This Weekend

Following in the treads of Starbucks' Frappucino Truck, Netflix is rolling an Orange is the New Black food truck through North America and Los Angeles is up next. "Crazy Pyes," inspired by Litchfield inmate and pie-thrower Suzanne 'Crazy Eyes' Warren (Uzo Aduba), will be giving out free pies and ice cream. To be specific, fruit pies like the ones Crazy Eyes is inclined to throw at an enemy, or a Chocolate and Vanilla Swirl ice cream cone, which fans know is a euphemism for something saucy.

Crazy Pyes has already passed through New York City, Guadalajara and Mexico City, handing out desserts via its ironically commissary-style window. In NYC, a few castmates showed up, including Selenis Leyvis, who plays inmate Gloria Mendoza, and Joel Garland, who plays prison guard Scott O'Neill.
