MOONPIES, MOON PIE

MoonPies (marshmallow between 2 chocolate covered Graham crackers) were introduced in 1917 by the Chattanooga Bakery in Tennessee.  They supposedly developed the MoonPie to sell to Appalachian coal miners as a snack.

There is an 'RC Cola and Moon Pie Festival' in June each year in Bell Buckle, Tennessee.
