Indeed, it is.

You can find plenty of moon pie's in the delta. I've never liked them to be honest. I'm surprised you can't find Pralines on the coast.

I spend a decent amount of time on the coast, I haven't specifically looked for moon pies, but feel I wouldn't have a hard time finding some.

Research shows Moon Pies can be found in Gulfport at Walmart, Sams Club, Dollar General, and other places. They even throw them out at Mardi Gras.

Next time i'm down that way, out of curiosity I will look for them.

Yes, but I used to eat them at Does Eat Place. Is it even open there anymore?
