Please note that we are not affiliated in any way with the legendary southern Moon Pie cookie treat, made for more than 75 years by the Chattanooga Bakery. When we came to name our press, we liked the dreaminess and poetic associations of the moon and pie. If you'd like to know more about Moon Pies themselves, check out the website at You can order these treats online, if by an unfortunate accident of birth or employment you live north of the Mason-Dixon Line and can't find them at your corner grocery. Did you know that there's a country music song commemorating that classic Southern two-course meal, "Moon Pie and an RC Cola" ?
