WAPAKONETA — The hometown of Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong and the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, will have an extra treat as they celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing on July 20, 1969.
The lunar landing is lauded by many as mankind's most significant accomplishment, and it also inspired the MoonPie.
Weighing 55 pounds, measuring 40 inches in diameter and 6 inches in height and boasting 14 pounds of marshmallow, 6 pounds of chocolate and 45,000 gravity defying calories, the world’s largest MoonPie will be served to all in attendance -- as long as it lasts.
