What Is a Moon Pie?
A Moon Pie is a packaged snack consisting of marshmallow creme sandwiched between graham cookies. The whole thing is then dipped in chocolate, which makes this treat very similar to a s’more in terms of flavor.
Moon Pies are made in Chattanooga, Tennessee and are popular throughout the South. These cookies first came onto the scene back in 1917 when a coal miner told a Chattanooga Bakery salesman that he’d like a snack as big as the moon. Soon after, the bakery started to produce the treat we know and love, according to MoonPie.
