I lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee, for several years and didn't really get into MoonPies until the last couple of years I was there. Now that I'm in California, I get really excited when I come across MoonPies in convenience stores or other specialty food stores. A MoonPie is a soft graham cracker flavored cookie with a marshmallow filling that is enrobed in chocolate. The original MoonPie was created in 1917, and now there are also double-decker MoonPies, banana MoonPies, and Vanilla MoonPies. I also found crispy MoonPies in peanut butter and mint flavors. The original MoonPie is still my favorite, but it's great to have other options. Normally the original MoonPies are less than $1.00 each.
I'd love to make an at home version of this cookie, but I'm still working on that... My S'mores Cookie Sandwiches and S'mores Cookies have the same flavor combinations, though.

  1. I've never heard of a moonpie but will make sure to try one next time I'm in America. They look delicious!

    1. I saw them in an American food shop in Covent Garden today and was wondering what they were - they cost about £2 each though!

  2. I have yet to try this! You'd peaked my curiosity!
