It's a sad commentary when things that we take for granted here in the United States, things that we can literally purchase for loose change, become a national obsession for people in countries like North Korea. I'm talking about a sweet treat that some would sacrifice a days pay to obtain--the marshmallow pie.

That's right, but there it's called a Choco-pie, and right now it can only be obtained on the black market, which means North Koreans are risking prison time for moment of bliss eating a marshmallow pie.

Thank God we live in America!
