Yes!! I grew up in the Lowell, MA area and they were my favorite snack. Two came in a little white box with cellophane wrapped around them. I've been looking for them for years. There is a new bakery in Dracut, Ma that sells blackmoons that taste just like them. It is located on Merrimack Ave (The Boulevard) near the river. They also make them with different fillings like coffee, peanutbutter, etc. They are delicious!

I have been searching for a very long time to find the recipe for these TWIN cake moon pies. I also grew up in Lowell and had them for in my school lunch everyday. What is the name of the bakery in Dracut? They really taste as good? Thank you

Oh my goodness....I remember these black moons. TWINS are what they were called. I lived in

Lowell and bought them at a corner store called Jerrys. I wish they still sold them because my teen aged sons would love them. I do have a recipe but not even close to tasting like the Twins. If I could only get my hands on that recipe I would be delighted. Any suggestions form anyone? Thank you!!

Wicked Whoopie Pies are deliciously habit-forming and there are at least ten smiles in each Wicked Whoopie Pie. Next time you're in Maine, stop by one of our bake shops and say hello. We are located at 5 Mechanic Street in Gardiner, Maine and at 621 Maine Avenue in Farmingdale, Maine. They are the are close as I come to black moons I had in Lowell. You can ordered them mail order at their website Wicked Whoopies.

Wicked whoopies are good but the cake part is more like sponge cake than the 'twins' blackmoons. Twins had a denser cake and the cream filling wasn't as sugary. It was more creamy. I've been lookin for them for years too! I grew up in Chelmsford and they were my favorite snack.

These blackmoons were made by Stoddard's Bakery located on Mammoth Rd in Lowell. When the owners retired they retired the recipe and they were never to be found locally again. My father would purchase them for us right from the bakery in mid-morning when they were still warm. A few of us locals have a recipe very similar but hesitate to give it away. I will say, the frosting is made with Fluff, confectionary sugar and Crisco. The cake is made with cocoa. I'd be surprised to ever find anything close to these delicious treasures!

Yeah, I grew up on Queen Street. I remember the Stoddard Bakery on Mammoth Road in Pawtucketville. Oh my God! Boy, am I old or what. Those were delicious.

My grandfather, Clayton B. Stoddard started in the bakery business in Lowell in the 1890's. My mother was a Stoddard, and I used to work in the bakery and lived upstairs above it. It is so nice to see that so many people have fond memories of the "Twins" but do you also remember the square pies and the fig and raspberry squares?

Your a very lucky person.Black Moons were a big part of my growing up. Every day I had to have a pack of them. By any chance do you know if the recipe will ever be out.

I LOVED those "Black Moons" as a kid. I have tried several Whoopie Pie Recipes and they have never come close to the original Stoddard's Bakery twins. I grew up in Centerville and would buy them at Houle's Variety at the corner of West 6th Street & Boisvert Street. John S. from Boston, "Will you share the recipe with us?" PLEASE.
