'Mmm...Moon Pie...What a time to be alive' - Simpsons.
Moon Pies are like English Wagon Wheels but are oh so so so much better. The Moon Pie has less biscuit and more marshmallow and is doubled layered which makes it an absolutely amazingly tasty chocolate treat.
HOWEVER - These little Moon Pie Bites, are pretty much the same thing as the real deal, just shrunk into mini Moon Pie's, about the size of a chocolate peanut.
The idea for MoonPies came about when the creator asked a Kentucky coal miner what kind of snack he'd like to eat. The answer: something with graham cracker and marshmallow and dipped in chocolate. When asked how big it should be, the miner looked up in the night sky and framed the full moon with his hands.The snack is often associated with the cuisine of the American South where they are traditionally accompanied by an RC Cola.
