Mardi Gras is a time of celebration! From balls and parties, to costumes, admiring the floats, and catching throws, it’s a time that captures all of your senses. We spend our days trying to catch the best of the day; and, for many of us, we can’t wait to catch a Moon Pie. Nothing says Mobile like a Moon Pie.

But this year, we challenge you to take it up a notch! With Mardi Gras love, local flavors, and a heap of Moon Pies from each day’s catch, turn them into the ultimate Mobile treat - a Moon Pie ice cream sandwich with Cammie’s Old Dutch Ice Cream Shoppe’s Banana Pudding ice cream. Soft cookie, marshmallow, vanilla ice cream, Nilla Wafers, and banana - what’s not to love?
