Moonpies, moonpies, moonpies. If you’re from the South, you probably grew up with them. We hear stories all the time from people who remember special times growing up, eating moonpies and drinking RC cola. Some recall trips to the general store as a child where a tasty moonpie awaited them. Some tell of sitting on the front porch at the end of a long day, maybe with their dad or grandpa, eating their moonpie.The moonpie memory reminds many people of times from the past, when you worked hard and then took a few minutes to rest a bit, talk with family or friends, and enjoy a moonpie and a RC.
If you aren’t familiar with moonpies, then a wonderful treat awaits you. They are made in the Chattanooga Bakery, just a little bit down the road from our store, so the moonpies we offer are bakery fresh. They come in seven delicious flavors…chocolate, vanilla, banana, strawberry, lemon, orange, and caramel. Buy them individually or in boxes of twelve, and you can make your own variety box if you like. You’ll need your own moonpies, plus another box to take back home with you to share.
And our moonpie fans will find moonpie merchandise includes t-shirts, mugs, tin signs, cookie jars, cast iron skillets, stuffed animals, magnets, shot glasses and more! This shop also includes fun and interesting nostalgic items such the Beatles, John Wayne, Dr. Who, Star Wars, I Love Lucy, The Wizard of Oz, and a variety of Super Heroes. And you’ll find silly items like Bacon body wash, Cupcake Band-Aids, stick-on beards or historical finger puppets. Come see us at the MoonPie General Store.
