Junk Food Review: Salted Caramel Moon Pies

This is part of Things I Shouldn’t Be Eating: A Continuing Series.

I found this at an HEB:

A Salted Caramel Moon Pie.

Obviously I had to pick it up.

How does it taste?

I wouldn’t waste your money. It tastes like a Banana Moon Pie without the banana, so it still has that faint artificial petrochemical tang, a faint hint of caramel, and a tiny bit of salt.

That’s not good enough.

The Banana Moon Pie is a nostalgic taste from childhood I occasionally indulge in. By comparison, the Salted Caramel Moon Pie is just a disappointment.

When I want a subtle dessert, I’m not reaching for a Moon Pie. I want the the sweet junk food rush of caramel to hit my tongue like jackhammer. The Salted Caramel Moon Pie doesn’t deliver.

    You need Jeni’s Salted Caramel ice cream. That will hit your tastebuds like a piledriver.
