What is the proper way to eat a Moon Pie?

Asked by john65pennington (29080 points ) February 6th, 2011

Since many of you are not from the south, you may not be familiar with Moon Pies. Its a dessert, consisting of three layers of soft graham crackers and marshmallow. It’s a true southern dessert. My friend eats his Moon Pie with a fork and an RC Cola. I do not agree or disagree with his Moon Pie etiquette. Question: how would you attack a Moon Pie? Fork, spoon, your fingers?

I would not eat a Moon Pie or drink an RC Cola.

Hold in left hand, chomp, chew, gulp, x2 or x3 if you are a little one. I wash it all down with cow milk. Then I pat my belly three times and try and start a conversation with the nearest object about football.

I lean more towards Little Debbie Swiss Cakes myself. Moon Pies were always snacks, eaten by hand, with milk as a chaser because they’re so sweet.

With my hands, of course! Just like fried chicken!

With Mtn. Dew, of course.

Or Sundrop (if you’re from Scott County, TN).

I’m as southern as southern gets, and I hate Moon Pies though.

A fork? No way. You eat it with your hand, keeping the wrapper on where your hand is so the chocolate doesn’t melt on your fingers. It is hot in the south, ya know.

I’d hire a goat as a proxy, and pay him in Twinkies.

Moon Pies have marshmallow in them and that means gelatin, so no Moon Pies for me since I went vegetarian 20 plus years ago. However, when I did eat them I would put one on a plate and microwave it, which required eating it with a fork. That was the best way to enjoy a Moon Pie.

Moon pie on one hand, fishing rod in the other, ice cold Coke in an old style bottle. C’mon summer.
