A culinary battle is forming over the humble whoopie pie. I have always associated this cake/filling sandwich with Lancaster County PA and the Amish.
Now the state of Maine is horning in, and trying to claim the pie for their own, and may even name it their official state treat! The Wall Street Journal exposed this dastardly plot to one and all in a recent article. But wait – could it be that the whoopie pie originated in neither state? Maybe….Texas? Or New York? Or Massachusetts? Read the WSJ article for a summary of various scenarios about whoopie pie origins.
And, if you’re a Lancaster County loyalist, visit Lancaster County’s SaveOurWhoopie.com site and place your sticky vote. Remember – Vote early and vote often! Heh heh.
