I don't trust anything that looks that perfectly preserved after 200 years.”— Mel
The pie's most significant difference from many other foodstuffs found throughout the wasteland is its preservative-filled nature, lacking any radiation when compared to most other pre-War foodstuffs.
The perfectly preserved pie can be obtained from any Port-A-Diner, with a small chance of dispensing. Obtaining the pie on any particular attempt is determined by the formula...
...thus, even with a Luck of 10, there's still only a 2% chance of obtaining the pie on the first attempt.
By cumulative probabilities, a Survivor with Luck 5 has a 50% chance of obtaining the pie within the first 36 attempts. Luck 10 reduces that to 26 attempts, while Luck 1 doesn't reach those odds until 49 attempts.
Depending on the Survivor's Luck, it takes between 75 and 105 attempts to reach a 95% chance of getting the pie, and 109 to 140 attempts to reach a 99.5% chance of getting the pie. In any case it should not take anywhere near 2000 attempts.

Perfectly preserved pie locationsEdit
- Automatron (add-on) One can be found in a wall mounted Eat-o-tronic in the Mechanist's lair.
- Nuka-World (add-on) Two slices of pie can be found on the counter in Cappy's Cafe, not contained within a Port-A-Diner.
- fo4nw One can be found above the entrance to Fizztop Mountain, only accessible by dropping from a beam above.
- During the quest The Big Dig, Mel will comment on the pie upon encountering the Port-A-Diner located in The Dig, saying that he wouldn't trust anything that has been perfectly preserved for 200 years, which is rather ironic considering him working together with the Sole Survivor.
- fo4nw There is a machine located in the Nuka-World junkyard that will always give the pie on the first attempt.
