Whoopie Pie Festival

The Whoopie Pie Festival generally takes place just after Labor Day. The 2017 Festival is Saturday, September 9th. If you happen to be in the Lancaster County area next weekend check it out. For more details visit their website!

If you’re unfamiliar with Whoopie Pies … let me fill you in. They are a chocolate cake sandwich with super-rich filling. I grew up calling them “Gobs” because my father’s side of the family is from Western Pennsylvania. I’ve alternately heard them called Black Moons and BFOs (Big F**king Oreos; for their resemblance only … they taste nothing like an Oreo).

This is the most common Whoopie Pie combo – Chocolate with Vanilla Filling. The festival has an enormous tent where you can purchase traditional and “exotic” flavors.

I’m not a fan of coconut but this variety must be popular. I was at the festival in its first  hours and they were nearly sold out.

I brought some Banana-Flavored Whoopie Pies home with me. They were great .. but very, very, very sweet.

 

There were dozens more flavors … but let’s move on to the other parts of the festival … like playing checkers with mini-whoopies.

Whoopie-Launching!

A Treasure Hunt for the little ones.

The crowd favorite: The Whoopie Hollering Contest. Here’s a little sample.
