There’s nothing quite like a little cultural dissonance.
I was walking through the grounds of the Summer Palace in Beijing (part of our experiences during the China 2.0 Tour for bloggers and tech folk) and someone came back from one of the small concession stands with several of these, labeled “Orion Pie.”
So, I unwrapped mine and took a bite, and found that thousands of miles away from the US Deep South, I was really chewing on….a Moon Pie.
No RC Cola in sight, though.
