Heartwarming video shows the moment four-year-old Abagail made peace with the sweet fruit for the first time
Watch this toddler experience pumpkin pie for the first time
A toddler was given the dream pastry treat her parents couldn’t believe she would ever want: a pumpkin pie.
Abagail’s dad, Phil Stattel, said she enjoyed her first piece of pumpkin pie on Saturday night but that he may not see him again after video of his daughter’s sojourn into it has gone viral.
The video starts with a parent filming Abagail sitting on a chair at their local farm store as she picks at the dough, this time surrounded by pumpkins.

Stattel explains to her: “She’s just going to bite into this pumpkin pie with the pumpkin pieces in it.”
The pumpkin pie was filled with custard, with Stattel asking his daughter if she had anything to drink. She replied: “I want a cup of vanilla and I want a chocolate and I want some strawberry.”
“I thought she was gonna say she wants water or juice,” Stattel said.
Eventually, Abagail climbs on to the pumpkin pie to the sounds of hushed laughing and starts to chew. As she digs into the pies, she learns to balance, then suck on it, and makes peace with the tender sweet fruit.
“My daughter right now is having the best time of her life,” Stattel said. “She’s genuinely loving the pumpkin pie and I am just trying to protect her from it and play the role of the disapproving parent.”
“But I am totally in awe,” he added. “I am screaming at the top of my lungs and I will probably never see her again.”
