Moon Pie

Delicious Since 1917 – The Moon Pie

Dating back to 1917, it was a food especially created when a Kentucky coal miner asked a traveling salesman named Earl Mitchell, for a snack “as big as the moon.” Soon after, the gentleman brought back the Moon Pie and hardworking coal miners loved it because it was delicious, filling, and it fit perfectly in their lunch pails.

Mint Juleps

Chocolate Covered Pretzels with Sprinkles

The story of the pretzel is all about love… who knew? First made in the 600s by Italian monks possibly as a food for Lent, pretzels soon came to signify two arms crossed in the bonds of matrimony – hence, some believe, the phrase “tying the knot.” Our chocolate covered pretzels are the perfect marriage of the 7th century pretzel enrobed in 19th century chocolate then lovingly covered in fun, colorful sprinkles.  3 pc – Comes with a label with an historic image on the front and the story on the back!

Chocolate Covered Retro Twinkies

Twinkies… Everyone’s Favorite Snack!

The infamous snack treat was likely invented in NYC in 1849 but took off in 1930 in Illinois, with banana cream filling. And the name? It was inspired by a billboard advertisement for “Twinkle Toe Shoes” the sweet’s creator saw in St. Louis. The Twinkie’s roots go back to the 1700s sponge cake. The vanilla cream appeared during WWII as bananas were rationed.

Do Twinkies Really Last Forever?!

Despite the persistent rumors about Twinkies remaining fresh for decades, they actually had a very short shelf life! Originally only good for about a week, after disappearing briefly from the market they made a return with an extended shelf life of about 45 days. Ours are dipped in handmade milk chocolate. Sold individually.
