Iconic 'MoonPie' Baker Teams with White Coffee
The Flavor of A Southern Tradition Comes North
LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Chattanooga Bakery, Inc., baker of the iconic MoonPie® -- the southern delectable consisting of two round graham cracker cookies with marshmallow filling in the center, dipped in chocolate, vanilla or banana coatings – is partnering with White Coffee Corporation to offer a line of MoonPie® inspired flavored coffees. The new line includes Chocolate, Vanilla, Banana and Mint, evocative of the MoonPie® snack varieties.
"Chattanooga Bakery has leveraged its MoonPie standard and now includes White Coffee in the process," says Jonathan White, Executive Vice President of White Coffee Corporation. "With a new packaging launch this summer and now a licensed gourmet coffee, the brand is well-positioned to obtain even greater success."
Nearly a million MoonPies® are produced every day and distributed throughout the U.S. During the Great Depression, MoonPies® found their place in Southern folklore as part of the "working man's lunch" for coal miners and laborers alike who desired a solid and filling snack.
MoonPie® coffees are sold in 10 oz. bags featuring the bright, "retro" half-moon logo and cherished cookie sandwich on the front. The four varieties are available nationwide in retail outlets at a suggested retail price of $5.99-$6.99 per lb.
Chattanooga Bakery, Inc., founded in 1902, is a fourth generation family-owned business that manufactures MoonPie® products as well as pecan and coconut pie snacks under the "LookOut!" brand. Chattanooga's products are sold nationwide at food retailers, mass merchandisers and convenience stores.
