Help Your Friends Bake Grandma’s Apple Pie in Cafe World

Facebook, Social

Over the last couple of days, you might have received a unique notification from one of your Café World neighbors, or even spotted a new game alert on yours news feed concerning Grandma’s Apple Pie.

According to Social Games Help, Grandma’s Apple Pie is comparable in some ways to lost animals in FarmVille, in that users will randomly come across lost recipes while playing the game (in this case, a lost recipe for the pie), and will be able to post their discovery to their news feed in an attempt to receive the last ingredient needed to bake the pie: love.

Once friends click on the “Give Love” button, they will be brought to a page with two options: you can either choose to take just a slice of pie and receive 50 Café Points, or you can be greedy and eat the entire thing, resulting in a reward of 500 coins.

Afterwards, you’ll have the opportunity to share the pie with friends via traditional gift requests. Each request offers 8 servings of the pie at 100 coins per serving.

With this new feature, you end up with free experience points or coins, and your friends get free food. Sounds like a win-win all around. Nicely done Zynga.

    The problem is if I send the pie free servings it counts as the daily gift to that person I sent it to. So i can't send them another gift that day & I would rather send them 100 or 200 servings of the daily free gift on the cafeworld page to help them in their cafe instead of just 8 pieces.

    Yes, unfortunately that is the case, as the pie does count as a gift. I was disappointed too, until I started really thinking about it and figured out that since the pie grants your friend 800 coins when all is said and done, it's actually the same as if you had sent them 200 serving dishes like the Red Velvet Cake or Key Lime Pie, which are sold for 4 coins per serving, as 4×200 is 800 coins too!

    I guess then it all boils down to whether you want the longevity of having a dish on a serving station for 200 servings, or if you'd rather have your 800 coins much faster – that and which free dish you happen to be allowed to send that day, of course.

    Thanks for the comment!
