Return of the Whoopie Pie

Some time ago I wrote a post about the whoopie pies they sell at Montes in Bangor, Maine. Today I had reason to travel up to Enfield, Maine where my dad has a camp on Cold Stream pond. It was a beautiful day, as you can see above.

On the way back I decided to stop at Nutter's Market, a mom-and-pop store that sells a variety of things. Last time I went through I discovered their whoopie pies. Apparently they are made fresh almost every day (and boy do they taste like it). Today I told the woman who owns the store that I was going to write about their Whoopie Pies on my blog, and put a picture up. She told me that people have had those whoopie pies shipped to friends and soldiers out of the country, who miss a little bit of Maine comfort food. And then she gave me at no cost a pumpkin chocolate chip whoopie pie to take with me for pictures.

I brought them both home, took pictures and then sampled both (yes, I saved some for my husband and kids!) The traditional one is chocolate with a cream frosting in the middle. The pumpkin one was out of this world, and I didn't think you could improve on the traditional chocolate whoopie pie. I was wrong.

Wow, my mom makes whoopie pies up for Luscious a few times a year. Hers are always chocolate and it is a recipe from her Mom - so you can figure out how old that recipe is. I can't imagine a pumpkin choc. one but bet it is delish!
Hugs to you, dear one.

My gram is the lady who cooks the delicious baked goods at Nutter's Market. Her name is Gloria. We've always known what an outstanding cook she is, but it's nice to see someone outside the family appreciate her culinary prowess! The chocolate whoopies with peanutbutter frosting are delicious too. I also recommend the date squares and macaroons!

Eric Ferguson here. I used to peddle my bike 5 miles, sometimes in the snow (lol), up to Nutters to get the date squares and whoppie pies! Boy do I miss that place! Any chance I could get the choc whoppie pie recipe? Thanks
