We’ve corrected the entry, and thank you for the heads up.

From the last picture, showing one of the teacakes bitten, or cut, in half, they remind me of a treat I had when I was a kid, called “Moonpies”. They too had a marshmallow cream center on top of a graham cracker base and covered in a chocolate coating. The difference was that the Moonpies were larger, at about three and a half to four inches across and they were much flatter, to fit the mouth better when you take a bite out of it.

Aren’t they the same as either Pinwheels or Mallomars?
