      Labor Day Moon Pie eating contest

      Dozens of folks got their ''fill'' of a popular Alabama treat this Labor Day.

      Tannehill State Park hosted the largest Moon Pie eating contest. All total there were 65 people who signed up. The winner receives a cash prize of $100. But this is about more than money. Park administrator, Stacey Green says, "I thought at times it was about the cash prizes, because the adults will win $100. But we've had so many repeat competitors, that I really think they're more in it for bragging rights. I really do." This is the 23rd annual Moon Pie eating contest held on Labor Day at Tannehill. The record was set two years ago, with 14 Moon Pies in ten minutes.
