June 16, 2010: RC & Moon Pie
Whenever we feature one of these, uh... unique cultural events, UT favors so much, it's always after the fact.

I'm a little frightened by the Goo Goo Cluster Valkyrie.
Gravdigr Wednesday Jun 16 03:06 AM
He's all Goo-Goo for her Clusters. I know I am.
SPUCK Wednesday Jun 16 06:33 AM
I keep thinking, with her shiny sprayed-on look, that she looks like an inflatable doll..

I'm in love with a rubber doll

The first two things I noticed about this picture were the left one and the right one.

Somehow, I just can't imagine "10 mile run" and "Moon Pie" at the same event.

I think that's Nirvana in that goo goo cluster outfit.
DanaC Wednesday Jun 16 01:35 PM
wtf is a moonpie?
squirell nutkin Wednesday Jun 16 02:04 PM
a moonpie is marshmallow sandwiched between two graham cracker cookies with the whole assembly being covered in chocolate. I'm not sure what you have over there that resembles a graham cracker.
Trilby Wednesday Jun 16 03:08 PM
addendum to squirrel's post: the moonpie is NOT as good as it sounds.

Goo Goo clusters are awesome, but in the "if round is funny" category of regional chocolately gooey treats my fave is the Bun Bar. Try a maple bar. They're fresh.

A chocolate moon pie.

Moon Pie looks to me like a Wagon Wheel
Spexxvet Wednesday Jun 16 05:06 PM
There were no Moon Pies when/where I grew up. We had Scooter Pies.
Pie Wednesday Jun 16 05:10 PM
I don't hold with any of those pies.
gtown Wednesday Jun 16 05:16 PM
Undertoad is correct of course, though he is a re-peat oh-fender.
hipshot Wednesday Jun 16 05:59 PM
Pop a Moon Pie into the microwave for 10-12 seconds and it multiplies the goodness tenfold!
DanaC Wednesday Jun 16 06:07 PM
The Moon Pies look a little like WagonWheels

In Mexico, you know what they call Twinkies? "Los submarinos."

To Brianna--Actually, it would probably be spoken thusly: "Gimme one 'er them thar RC co' colas 'n uh moon pie." The "i" in "pie" would be drawn out to become almost a second syllable. Another variation would be "co' colars". By the way, that RC king looks a helluva lot like my older grandson. Yeeeee--HAW!
