MERRITT ISLAND, Fla., July 20 (UPI) -- Florida's Kennedy Space Center Monday gave out pieces of "one of the world's largest MoonPies" to mark the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11, officials said.

The MoonPie, comprised of six pounds of chocolate and 14 pounds of marshmallow, was given to the hungry public at the Visitor Complex's rock garden at 2 p.m. to mark the 40th anniversary of the mission that first put man on the moon, Florida Today reported Friday.

Meanwhile, in Cocoa Beach, Fla., a Dunkin' Donuts announced it is honoring the anniversary from Monday to Friday with a special 11-cent "Moon Donut." The treats, which come filled with Boston cream or vanilla cream, bear the words "Apollo 11" in frosting.
