Round One of the Southern Sweets Showdown rolls on with the 3-seeds versus the 14-seeds.

Our first matchup of those seeds comes from the Hand-Held Treats Region, pitting the #3 Moon Pies against the #14 Chick-O-Stick.

If you don’t know Chick-O-Stick by name, you’ll certainly remember them by taste. Here’s how Lufkin, Texas’ Atkinson Candy Company, the candy’s makers, describes it:

“Just imagine a delicious combination of homemade peanut butter in a crispy crunchy hard candy shell with mouth watering toasted coconut on the outside.”
