Question of the Day

Is a Moon Pie candy?

I was raised in the South, Georgia mostly, and eating a Moon Pie was no big deal, just another fun dessert. I certainly at them like candy. No thought given in those days of what they might be made of…. just cared that they were sweet and had a chocolatey flavor.

On a recent trip to Chattanooga, TN, where they are made, I decided to have one after a good 40 years or more of going without. Well, it didn’t taste the same, in fact I can no longer endorse them. I made the mistake of reading the ingredients list first, then tried one. Lacked the chocolate flavor I thought I remembered and the texture was way too dry for me. Chalk up another one to childhood memories not holding up.                        (Photo by Marv Parker)
