My parents got me a box of Moon Pies for Christmas. And since I didn't go home until June, that's when I got them. As if they weren't aged enough, I only recently rediscovered them on my shelf. They are hard, like little chocolate marshmallow discuses. But on the package, it has "microwave instructions" (between 5 and 15 seconds on high power). Since I'm pretty much out of food in the apartment, other than sundry condiments, I decided to try it. And it makes them quite yummy.
