On the old Bella's website, we shared how we discovered and created our own natural & organic Whoopie Pies.
Whoop-de-doo (Organic Oatmeal Whoopie Pie)
Ask someone "What's a Whoopie Pie?" and you're sure to get either two responses... 1) shrugged shoulders and "I don't know" or 2) a quick "where... they're delicious." Delaware is about 2 hours south of Pennsylvania Dutch country, Lancaster County, PA. Whoopie Pies grow in fields there. Seriously... take an afternoon drive and you're sure to spot row after row of Whoopies. The Amish, are known for a lot of great dishes, but are most famous for two... Whoopie Pies & Shoofly Pies. Try to find a Whoopie Pie in Delaware though... forget it. This makes us think that most of you... have never tried a Whoopie Pie either.
Not too long ago, we were introduced to the Whoopie Pie on a trip to Hershey Park, PA. We had stopped at roadside bakery/restaurant/type shop, and immediately upon entering the bakery, your eyes zoom on this gargantuan creation. Two cakey cookies stuffed with some sort of fluffy, sugary, filling (it's a meal all to itself). We had to have one... delicious. And from that point, we were committed to bringing to market our version of this classic creation.
You can make a Whoopie in a variety of flavors, but since we haven't formally introduced an oatmeal cookie yet, here's one in a big way. Two, homemade organic oatmeal cookies, sandwiched between an all natural and organic sweet, creamy filling.
Here's to the inner kid in all of us... you'll love it!
