History Never Tasted So Good!
You know MoonPies are delicious. You know they’re the perfect combination of marshmallow, graham and chocolate. But do you know how they came to be? Mobile’s official Mardi Gras treat and New Years Eve iconic drop has an outta-this-world story, so grab yourself a MoonPie and sit right there while Mobile’s MoonPie General Store spins their tale.
It all began in 1917 when a KY coal miner asked our traveling salesman for a snack “as big as the moon.” Earl Mitchell reported back and the bakery obliged with a tasty treat aptly named MoonPie. It was filling, fit in the lunch pail and the coal miners loved it. The rest, as they say, is history. 100 years and still going strong, the MoonPie General Store company produce about a million a day, so grab you one soon, slow down for just a minute, and enjoy.
