Mental_Floss and Moon Pie

Posted Friday, June 6, 2008, at 9:38 PM

I'm a subscriber to the wonderful print magazine Mental_Floss, and I also keep up with their blog.

Well, the blog today had an entry about "7 of America's Quirkiest Food Festivals." Guess which snack-food-and-carbonated-beverage-related soiree was included?

You guessed it.

How cool that we were included! It's nice to see the festival represented. I'm also glad to see we ranked quite a bit higher than the testicle festival in Montana!

Curious about Michigan having 6 of the top 10 festivals. I am not sure what that says, but I may pay better attention to the menu next time I am there.

I grew up in MI and don't remember that many festivals. Kalamazoo had a Harvest and Wine festival every fall that was always fun to attend.
