Moon pie

A moon pie or MoonPie is a confection, popular in parts of the United States, which consists of two round graham cracker cookies, with marshmallow filling in the center, dipped in a flavored coating. The snack is often associated with the cuisine of the American South where they are traditionally accompanied by an RC Cola. Today, MoonPies are made by the Chattanooga Bakery in Chattanooga, TN.

The traditional pie is approximately four inches in diameter. A smaller version exists (mini MoonPie) that is approximately half the size, and a Double-Decker MoonPie of the traditional diameter features a third cookie and attendant layer of marshmallow. The four main flavors are chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and banana. Double Decker MoonPies also come in lemon and orange; MoonPie Crunch comes only in peanut butter or mint. In 2014, a salted caramel flavor was introduced.

 
MoonPies have been made daily at the Chattanooga Bakery since the incorporation of MoonPie on April 29, 1917. Earl Mitchell Junior said his father came up with the idea for MoonPies when he asked a Kentucky coal miner what kind of snack he would like to eat, and the miner requested something with graham cracker and marshmallow. Popular folklore, repeated and encouraged by the Chattanooga Bakery itself, states the miner then asked the snack be “as big as the moon”, which inspired the name “moon pie”.

There is a custom for eating MoonPies with RC Cola, although the origin of this is unknown. It is likely that their

A double-decker Moon Pie split in half.

inexpensive prices, combined with their larger serving sizes, contributed to establishing this combination as the “working man’s lunch”. The popularity of this combination was celebrated in a popular song of the 1950s, by Big Bill Lister, “Gimmee an RC Cola and a Moon Pie”. In 1973, NRBQ had a minor hit with the song, “An RC Cola and a Moon Pie”.

Since New Year’s Eve 2008, the city of Mobile, Alabama has been raising a 12-foot-tall lighted mechanical moon pie to celebrate the coming of the new year. The giant banana colored MoonPie is raised by a crane to a height of 200 feet as the clock strikes midnight. Also, the city had for the 2008 New Year’s celebration the world’s largest MoonPie baked for the occasion. It weighed 55 pounds and contained 45,000 calories.

An annual RC & MoonPie Festival is celebrated in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, and a MoonPie Eating Contest is held in Bessemer, Alabama.

On October 16, 2010, Sonya Thomas, a competitive eater known as the “Black Widow”, ate 38 MoonPies in eight minutes in Caruthersville, Missouri.

Newport, Tennessee held its first annual MoonPie Festival in May 2012.

 
Mardi Gras tradition
The MoonPie became a traditional “throw” (an item thrown from a parade float into the crowd) of Mardi Gras “krewes” (parade participants) in Mobile, Alabama during 1956, followed by other communities along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The westernmost outpost of the MoonPie as an important Carnival throw is Slidell, Louisiana, which has a parade by “The Krewe of Mona Lisa and MoonPie”. Also, in the town of Oneonta, Alabama, there is a MoonPie eating contest started by Wal-Mart employee John Love when he inadvertently ordered too many. This anecdote was featured in Sam Walton’s autobiography, Made in America.

 
Apollo 11 great moon walk tradition
The MoonPie is a traditional celebratory food for remembering the Apollo 11 moon walk that took place on July 20, 1969. MoonPies are used in the commemorative celebration by aerospace workers and enthusiasts across the globe.

 
A MoonPie is made with marshmallow, which is a low-fat but high-sugar food. The nutritional content of a chocolate full-size or Mini MoonPie (from 2004) is detailed below, showing (full-size) 226 calories, saturated fat 3.5g, carbohydrate 40g, protein 4g, iron 5%, of a total weight of 57 grams (2 ounces). The nutritional data for a chocolate Mini MoonPie is about 65% the amount of full-size.

The ingredients are as follows: enriched wheat flour (niacin, reduced iron, thiamine mononitrate, riboflavin, folic acid), corn syrup, sugar, vegetable shortening (contains partially hydrogenated soybean oil and/or cottonseed oil and/or coconut oil and/or palm kernel oil and/or palm oil), soy flour, dutched cocoa (processed with alkali), cocoa, kosher gelatin, baking soda, lecithin, salt, artificial flavoring, sodium sulfite.

 

 

Wagon Wheels are similar to moon pies and are found in the United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada

In the northern areas of the U.S. a similar product is called a “Scooter Pie” and there is also a single-cracker marshmallow cookie called “Mallomars”. Little Debbie also makes what they call “Marshmallow Pies” which are nearly identical to the Moonpies. In the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada a similar product is called “Wagon Wheels” and in Japan, “Choco Pie” and the smaller-sized “Angel Pies” by Morinaga.

Some South Korean and Taiwanese companies produce “Choco pies”, and in Mexico there are similar cookie pies called “Mamut” (Spanish for “Mammoth”, sold by Gamesa), and “Rocko” (marketed by Marinela); there are several other minor brands as well. In Turkey, a similar pie is called “Halley”. In Egypt, a similar pie is called “Bimbo”. In Argentina a similar treat is “Alfajor”, more than 20 brands marketed as “alfajores” are very popular.

It’s Nuts I tell you…..All about Superfoods

March 16, 2017 at 5:34 AM | Posted in nuts, NUTS COM | Leave a comment

From the nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/), its all about Superfoods! You ask what is a Superfood? Superfoods are foods that are nutritionally dense and provide a wide array of health benefits that are important for maintaining a balanced diet. And that’s just some of the benefit’s of Superfoods!

Find them al plus a great selection of Coffees and Teas, Chocolates, Nuts, Gifts and more at the Nuts site. Most items can be purchased in small amounts or in bulk. Plus there’s Everyday Free Shipping, see for details. Now on to the Superfoods. Enjoy and Eat Healthy!

 

 

 

What is a superfood?
Superfoods are foods that are nutritionally dense and provide a wide array of health benefits that are important for maintaining a balanced diet. Superfoods have high doses of vitamins and minerals which our bodies need to ward off diseases and stay healthy. They can also contain other important nutrients such as antioxidants, healthy fats, fiber, and phytochemicals. While the American Heart Association states that there are no set criteria for classifying a superfood, there are still foods that can be considered super due to their rich nutrient profile. We have compiled a list of some of the most popular superfoods which you can start incorporating into your diet today!

 

 

 

Popular Superfoods
1) Goji berries: Goji berries are bright orange-red berries that are native to China. In Asia, these berries have been consumed for many generations as they were thought to help you live longer. Goji berries are one of the most nutritionally dense berries. They contain all essential amino acids and are loaded with vitamin C, fiber, iron, calcium, zinc, and protein. These nutritional powerhouses also contains anti-inflammatory properties, as well as antibacterial compounds. Goji berries boast powerful antioxidant properties which help boost the immune system. It’s no wonder they have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries.

 

 

 

2) Quinoa: Quinoa comes from Peru, Bolivia and Chile. It’s been grown in the Andes Mountains for millennia as a food staple of the native people. It is often noted as a superfood because of its wide array of essential nutrients. Quinoa contains protein, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals like iron, copper, and vitamin B6. It is also a rich source of magnesium and phosphorus. A 2009 article in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture noted that quinoa is a highly nutritious food due to its exceptional balance of protein, oil, fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.

This rich nutrient profile provides several health benefits for the body. Quinoa’s fiber content improves digestion and is said to help lower cholesterol levels. A study on the effects of a quinoa diet published in the journal Plant Foods for Human Nutrition found that rats reduced their LDL cholesterol by 57 percent when they were fed quinoa after consuming high levels of fructose. Moreover, lowering your LDL can improve heart health. Quinoa also contains omega-3 fatty acids and alpha-linolenic acids which are important for keeping your heart healthy and happy.

 

 

 

3) Spirulina: Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae found in most lakes and ponds. Spirulina is a superfood naturally loaded with vitamins A through E, iron, and antioxidants. From calcium to potassium to zinc, spirulina contains a wide range of minerals. The essential amino acids present in spirulina play a key role in helping our bodies to efficiently use these minerals.

Furthermore, it is considered a complete protein, containing an ideal balance of all 9 essential amino acids. A one-ounce serving of spirulina contains over 30% of the Daily Value (DV) for protein. Spirulina’s protein is 85-95% digestible, a higher percentage than that of even red meat or soy. Spirulina’s antioxidant concentration is four times that of blueberries. Moreover, spirulina has an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) of over 24,000 – ORAC measures the antioxidant concentration of foods. Antioxidants protect our cells from the damaging oxidative effects of free radicals.

 

 

 

4) Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are a great superfood since they are extremely high in omega-3 fatty acids and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Thirty percent of chia seed oil is omega-3 oil. Ten percent of its oil is omega-6 oil. This is the perfect balance of essential fatty acids. Western diets are usually susceptible to a deficiency of omega-3, but a proper omega 3:6 ratio plays an important role by reducing inflammation in our bodies.

Moreover, chia seeds are great for athletes because they are highly hydrophilic, meaning they can absorb large amounts of water. They can hold 10 times their weight in water making them a great enhancer in hydrating our bodies. Furthermore, studies show that eating chia seed slows down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrate calories into simple sugars. This leads scientists to believe that chia seeds may have great benefits for diabetics.

 

 

 

5) Cacao Nibs: Chocolate in its purest form, cacao nibs are a great superfood. Cacao nibs are rich in antioxidants, fiber, iron and magnesium. They contain a wide array of health benefits that are essential for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Cacao nibs are an excellent source of fiber and iron. A single one-ounce serving of cacao nibs provides 18% of the DV for fiber and 21% of the DV for iron.

Cacao nibs are also chock-full of protective antioxidants and magnesium. In fact, cacao nibs are one of the best food sources of magnesium: an essential mineral involved in over 300 chemical reactions in our body, from nerve function to bone health. Cacao nibs are also said to help improve cognitive function. Cacao nibs have many other health benefits including improving cognitive function, stabilizing blood sugar, improving insulin sensitivity, enhancing your mood, and contributing to overall general health. We definitely suggest adding cacao nibs to your diet!

It’s Nuts I tell you……DARK CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS

From the nuts.com website (https://nuts.com/) this week its DARK CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS. Dark chocolate covered espresso beans are hand-picked estate Arabica espresso beans smothered in 60% cacao dark chocolate, and says it all!

Plus there’s Everyday Free Shipping, see for details. So be sure to check out the Nuts site and start eating healthier! Now on to the DARK CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS.

 

 

 

DARK CHOCOLATE COVERED ESPRESSO BEANS

Dark chocolate covered espresso beans are hand-picked estate Arabica espresso beans smothered in 60% cacao dark chocolate. Crunchy and decadent, this is the ultimate treat for coffee and chocolate lovers alike. Snack on dark chocolate espresso beans out of the bag, or pair them with your next cup of joe.

Origin
We tasted a lot of dark chocolate covered espresso beans in order to identify the best of the best. Sourced from Colombia, which is recognized for producing some of the highest quality coffee in the world, these espresso beans make all the difference in taste.

Unlike the cheaper and more common Robusta coffee beans, Arabica beans have a sweeter profile and more intense coffee aroma. Arabica coffee beans like the ones used in this treat are considered superior to Robusta beans in all aspects.

What are the Ingredients in Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans?
Dark chocolate covered espresso beans contain 60% cacao dark chocolate, roasted estate Arabica coffee beans, natural cocoa powder, confectioner’s glaze, and gum arabic (an emulsifier).

How Much Caffeine is in Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans?
Every 1/4 cup (about 10 grams) of dark chocolate covered espresso beans contains 60 milligrams of caffeine. For your reference, the average cup of coffee contains about 95 milligrams of caffeine.

Health Benefits of Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
1) Antioxidants: Chocolate and espresso give a one-two punch to free radicals with protective antioxidants. Dark chocolate contains antioxidants in the form of flavonoids, while espresso beans contain polyphenols, which are known to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals.

2) Natural Mood-Lifters: Dark chocolate can increase serotonin and endorphins, your body’s natural “feel-good” chemicals that put you in a good mood. Coffee produces a similar feeling because it stimulates the release of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which triggers the pleasant feelings that come with sipping a cup of coffee.

Recipe Ideas for Dark Chocolate Espresso Beans
Aside from snacking on them by the handful, dark chocolate espresso beans make a crunchy addition to trail mix, cookies, baked treats, and even chocolate bark! They are also a lovely decoration for chocolate- and coffee-flavored cakes and cupcakes. Arrange the chocolate covered espresso beans in a ring atop frosted desserts for a touch of elegance. Homemade coffee ice cream is also better with the addition of crunchy chocolate-drenched espresso beans. Try them as a topping on frozen yogurt, too!

Ingredients
Dark Chocolate: [contains: sugar, cocoa mass, cocoa butter, soy lecithin ( an emulsifier), vanilla], Roasted Estate Arabica Coffee Beans, Natural Cocoa Powder, Confectioner’s Glaze, Gum Arabic. Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, and milk products.

Choose This, Not That Holiday Treats

From the Diabetic Living Online website its – Choose This, Not That Holiday Treats. You can still enjoy the Holiday treats and not over do it withtips and recipes from the Diabetic Living Online website. Less calories and carbs and Diabetic Friendly! Enjoy and Eat Healthy! http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/

 

 

Choose This, Not That Holiday TreatsDiabetic living logo

Yummy, tempting treats are everywhere this time of year. What do you do if you’re following a diabetic diet? Good news! We’ve picked the best options from the holiday treat table. Just be sure to count them as part of your regular meal plan so your blood glucose and weight loss goals aren’t forgotten.

 

 

How to Stand Up to Tempting Holiday Treats

When the holidays roll around, there’s never a lack of tempting treats. For a person with diabetes, it’s important to be armed with better-for-you options that satisfy your holiday cravings. The following substitutions, while more healthful than the traditional treats, still contain calories, fat, and carbohydrates, which need to be accounted for in your daily eating plan.

 
Choose Fat-Free Kettle Corn Over Caramel Corn

Choose This: Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! 94% Fat Free Microwave Kettle Korn (1 cup = 19 cal., 4 g carb., 0 g fat, 1 g pro.)

Not That: Homemade or purchased caramel corn (1 cup = 236 cal., 36 g carb., 11 g fat, 1 g pro.)

Popcorn is typically a healthy snack choice, but caramel corn is loaded with sugar and butter — and calories and fat. Snacking on Orville Redenbacher’s SmartPop! Kettle Korn saves many calories and carbohydrates because it’s sweetened with a sugar substitute…..

 

 
Choose Sugar-Free Hard Candies Over Caramels

Choose This: Werther’s Original Sugar Free Hard Candies (1 piece = 8 cal., 3 g carb., 0 g fat, 0 g pro.)

Not That: Homemade or purchased caramels (1-inch square = 80 cal., 12 g carb., 4 g fat, 0 g pro.)

Traditional caramels are made with sugar, sugar, and more sugar, which makes them hard to work into a healthy eating plan. Trading a piece of sugar-free hard caramel candy not only saves carbohydrates and fat, it also takes longer to eat, making it a longer-lasting treat….
