For some reason, all things remotely festive have been consumed around my birthday. This post started with the Moon Pies with sprinkles . For some reason, sprinkles just say "party!" to me.
I've never been a big Moon Pie person, but when I saw this in Cracker Barrel, I thought I'd just check it out. I am such a sucker for nostalgia!
It looks like the current Moon Pie, but flatter:
I wanted to try these solely because of the sprinkles:
As usual, nothing lives up to the image on the box. And now I'm ruined now by the Scooter Pie. This seems way too dry and flavorless to me. Even sprinkles can't save it.
These sprinkles seem to say "hangover" more than "party!".
I've reviewed these before and they really are nothing like a Moon Pie. No marshmallow, no weird cakey/cookie slab:
This is a chocolate cookie with peanut butter filling dipped in chocolate:
These are okay. Not enough peanut butter in my book. (Is there EVER enough peanut butter?)
These are like the peanut butter ones, but with mint:
This has more in common with Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies than a Moon Pie:
If you like those Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies, you will adore these!! I think they did a better job with the mint than the peanut butter. Mint and chocolate lovers - get thee to Cracker Barrel and stock up!
These are just like the regular Moon Pies to me:
Dry and crappy. Sorry Little Debbie. The original Scooter Pie kicked butt.
