Whoopie Pie Festival

I never tire of whoopie pies.  They’re a fun snack that brings out the kid in everyone.  The Amish have sort of adopted the treat as their own, although people in Maine are adamant that their state claim the confection. No matter who invented them, I am glad they did.  There as many variations on whoopie pies as there are flavors.  The theme is the same, though, two cookies with some sort of filling smooshed between them whether that be mint, peanut butter, chocolate, or just plain ol’ cream filling.

One festival that I am just itching to get to one day is the annual Whoopie Pie Festival held at the Hershey Farm Restaurant & Inn.  This year the event is being held on September 7 from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. So mark your calendars!  The photos you see are from a previous year’s event (thank you, Susie Conrad for the pics!).  Yummmm, those Red Velvet whoopies are making me drool.

The festival features over 100 different flavors of whoopie pies. Anne Faix, the festival’s marketing director told me that her favorite whoopie pie is “our classic chocolate shell filled with chocolate filling and dipped in chocolate.” The festival refers to the cookies that surround the filling as a “shell”, a term I’ve not heard or used before, so I’ll just continue to call them cookies:)

Some of the whoopie pie flavors of past years are listed below with the cookie type and the filling.

Chocolate Sandwich cookies: P/B, Vanilla, Mint chip, Raspberry, Strawberry, Cookies & Cream, Coffee, Banana, Chocolate,Cream cheese, Spice, or Mint Fillings

Pumpkin Sandwich Cookies: Vanilla, Cream Cheese, or Spice Fillings

Red Velvet Cookies: Vanilla or Cream Cheese Fillings

Vanilla Cookies: Regular, Peanut Butter, Vanilla, Mint Chip, Raspberry, Strawberry, Cookies and Cream, Coffee, Banana,Chocolate, Cream Cheese, Spice, Jelly, or Lemon Fillings

Peanut Butter Cookies: Regular, Peanut Butter, Chocolate, or Jelly Fillings

Which of the above flavors would you like to try most?:)

    I have been here and done that.
    If you come you will have fun. There are contests, games and of course the whoopie pies. They also make the world’s largest whoopie pie. It goes in to the Guinness Book of World Records.
    The hardest decision is to figure out which pies you want. My favorites are the original with the filling that tastes likes Oreos, and chocolate cookie with mint filling. But then the pumpkin with cream cheese filling is very good too. Oh heck they are all good, you won’t be disappointed with any of them. The one thing we learned from experience is that if it is hot that day you may not want to get the chocolate covered ones. If you do bring a cooler or you will have a mess on your hands, shirt, face…you get the idea…LOL
