Chattanooga Bakery — the maker of the MoonPie brand marshmallow sandwich cookie — is marketing a new peanut butter version.
The company sent out a press release to let everyone know they don’t use the supplier of peanut butter tied to the current salmonella outbreak.
In a prepared statement, Tory Johnson, VP of Marketing, says, “We have an ongoing and aggressive quality assurance program that prevents any contamination concerns. ENJOY this exciting and delicious new product!”
I feel so sorry for the MoonPie people that I may have to eat one, even if it is 170 calories for a cookie-sized mini-pie and loaded with partially hydrogenated oils.
