You and me Both , Brother..
We saw a thing on the food network, how there was / is some kinda debate over who makes the best whoopies ( pies that is) and where they originated from, and who is better known for them ( Pennsylvania or Maine).
This was the perfect excuse I used to go do a whoopie pie taste test.
Got a bunch from Flying Monkey Bakery
, In Philly's Reading Terminal market , who are also well known for their ' Pummple Cake' ( which is a apple pie baked within a vanilla cake, layered on top of a pumpkin pie baked within a chocolate cake, the whole thing frosted over. (kinda like the turducken of cakes))
Also got some from a few Amish Markets outside of Philly.
Then off to Maine. First stop, Portland's Cranberry Island KItchen
, Featured on a Bobby Flay throw down episode, Two Fat Cats
, on the other side of town, and Finally, our last stop was Freeport Maine, to Wicked Whoopies
, where we visit annually on our Maine Summer vaction.
So, our personal results were that although the Whoopie Pies on Pennsylvania were better ( sorry Maine, we still love you and your whoopies), Wicked Whoopies
took the cake ( so to speak) in Maine. Only ordered online from them once ( this past week), but were very reliable, and everyone loved them, would definitely order again from the site and will obviously still make our annual pilgrimage to Freeport for some Wicked Whoopies...
As an added note, Loved the When Pigs Fly
bread bakery in Freeport too. Was going to order from there for the holidays, but it was too late, and couldnt guarantee Id get them in time for the holiday. You snooze, you loose, as the saying goes.
