MOONPIE, one of America’s best-loved brands, has enlisted Craig Morgan, to help send free MoonPies to our U.S. troops! As announced today from the CMA Close Up Stage at CMA Music Festival in Nashville, TN, starting this month, the country music star and former soldier will be featured on over 250k 8-count Chocolate Double-Decker MoonPie boxes on grocery shelves across the nation. The cartons will depict Morgan’s likeness, recap his long-standing commitment to our troops, and list a website where fans of the tasty treat can send a free “thank you” MoonPie to our American heroes serving abroad. Up to fifty thousand free MoonPie marshmallow sandwiches will be sent to our soldiers over the coming months. Morgan kicked off the campaign by giving free MoonPies to soldiers and their families who came out for his CMA Artist of the Day program at CMA Music Festival.
“Long known as ‘the American workingman’s lunch,’ MoonPie is excited to offer this small treat of appreciation to our hard working troops,” shared Tory Johnston, V.P. of Marketing for MoonPie. “We hope it brings a grin and stirs a happy memory from home. And as a veteran and long-time supporter of our troops, Craig Morgan is the ideal partner to help MoonPie engage our terrific fans in supporting our American heroes.”
Morgan recently returned from Afghanistan and his eleventh overseas tour for our troops. His bags were not only stuffed with gear for his live shows but also MoonPies for the soldiers serving overseas, making the singer’s visit that much sweeter.
“It’s always great to perform for our troops stationed overseas, but this time we got to bring them another piece of home,” shared Morgan. “The men and women in uniform loved the familiar taste of the chocolate MoonPies!”
