Synopsis

This title is featured on the "Food Network" and selected as a recommended non-fiction read by the Atlanta Constitution. In the ninety years since the Chattanooga Bakery began producing MoonPies, the snack grew from a regional treat, to a southern snack staple, to a worldwide phenomenon. With the company now making a million MoonPies a day, David Magee estimates that some three billion have been consumed since 1917. Filled with reverence - and anecdotes by aficionados from across the South - "MoonPie" is a whimsical story of what began as a portable food for Kentucky and Tennessee coal miners and became a favorite product of Sam Walton.
