MoonPie Coffee: It Exists!

Posted By on Tue, Oct 2, 2012 at 1:20 PM

So, about a minute after I finished reading Chris Herrington's review of Tim Burton's Frankenweenie, I received an email press release titled "Iconic 'MoonPie' Baker Teams with White Coffee."

A coincidence? Yes, it was a total coincidence, but you have to see the parallel, a certain mad-science-ing theme.

Now, about that coffee, per the press release:

Chattanooga Bakery, Inc., baker of the iconic MoonPie® — the southern delectable consisting of two round graham cracker cookies with marshmallow filling in the center, dipped in chocolate, vanilla or banana coatings — is partnering with White Coffee Corporation to offer a line of MoonPie® inspired flavored coffees. The new line includes Chocolate, Vanilla, Banana and Mint, evocative of the MoonPie® snack varieties.

The coffee will sell for about $6 for 10 ounces and will be available at retail outlets and online.

This is not White's only foray into snack food-as-coffee, btw. They are sell lines based on Entenmann's, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and Kahlua.
