LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) It’s the 100th anniversary of the Moon Pie.

And to celebrate, the Moon Pie Mobile is driving around. It stopped in Lexington today where they handed out some Moon Pies to lucky passers by.

“We’ve been to Richmond today, we’re on our way down to Southwestern Virginia this afternoon, and we’ll be in the Carolinas tomorrow," says Sam Campbell, President of the Chattanooga Bakery, where Moon Pies are made. "But this van’s going to spend four months running all over where Moon Pies are loved.”

As part of the anniversary, the family-owned bakery that makes Moon Pies are changing its recipe back to its original all-natural ingredients.
