A Moon (Pie) Landing


Moon Pies are a southern snack
tradition that started in Tennessee in the early 1930's. Consisting
of graham crackers sandwiching marshmallow fluff and coated in
various flavors, Moon Pies were a rare treat for this New York boy
growing up. My favorite was the “chocolate” coated Moon Pie.
While the quality of the chocolate may be suspect and I no longer
care for them as I did, my son recently got to try his first Moon
Pie, a chocolate double-decker, with an extra graham cracker and
additional fluff. I'm afraid that Moon Pies will be only a rare treat
for that New York boy too.
