Did You Know
Moon Pies were introduced during the Great Depression in the US. Bakers in Tennessee combined marshmallow creme with graham crackers in a sandwich style and then, further down the line, they added chocolate to create the first, recognisable moon pie.
The tradition of eating Moon Pies and drinking RC Cola began because both products were relatively inexpensive and the Moon Pies were quite large, creating a "working man's lunch".
This was so popular that it spawned the song "Gimmee an RC Cola and a Moon Pie" by Big Bill LIster in the 1950s.
Not the catchiest title!
All we know is that Mon Pies are absolutely delicious and we're over the moon (pardon the pun!) that we've finally managed to get them over here to the UK!
