To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Apollo 11′s historic landing on the moon, NASA had a giant moon pie created for guests of the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral, FL. According to Yahoo! News, the pie is 40 inches in diameter and weighs 55 pounds. Fourteen of those pounds are made up of marshmallow (a traditional moon pie is made up of marshmallow sandwiched between two round graham crackers and dipped in chocolate).
In the middle of all of the tributes and recognitions going on right now to commemorate the moon landing and all of the people who made it possible, it’s a nice whimsical touch to have a moon pie be part of the celebration. And it looks DELICIOUS.
