Moon Pies


Moon Pie 100<sup>th</sup> Anniversary

With all the hoopla about some event or other occurring on Monday, August 21 of this week, the news of the 100th anniversary of the Moon Pie has been almost totally eclipsed! (HT: my dear wife Becka)

I don't remember ever having heard of, let alone eating (!), a Moon Pie until I came to college in South Carolina. Sorry, but my life was woefully provincial in NW Ohio in the late 1960's. I also learned here that the best way to enjoy a Moon Pie is with RC Cola. The following link about an annual RC-Moon Pie celebration was added in a comment. I thought it should be added at this point in the post since some readers don't look at the comments.

Here are links to several simulated eclipses of the sun with Moon Pies.

The solar eclipse has brought me out of my blogging hibernation. More than a couple people have whined commented to me recently about how much they missed my posts, so I'm going to get back at it. 🙂 At this point, I don't know how frequently I will post, but I will try to let the "IV's" drip through every week or so.

In the comments section of this post, I would enjoy hearing your thoughts about Moon Pies — how much you love them, your favorite way to eat them, or maybe not. To be totally honest, I have ways of getting carbs and fat grams that I much prefer. 😀

Feel free to add your thoughts about the much-hyped eclipse. Here in Greenville, don't try to get a hotel room or possibly even to drive on Monday. On campus alone there are over 8,000 people registered to attend all the special events related to the eclipse.
