Whoopie pie varieties

Remember how I asked a while back about your favorite whoopie pie flavors?

whoopiepiebasic.jpgWell, Dianne mentioned they’re one of her favorites; she says she likes to add peanut butter to the filling mix. She found a recipe for “Classic Chocolate Whoopie Pies,” complete with step-by-step photos, via King Arthur Flour. (That’s their recipe photo with this entry!)

Lorie said chocolate with peanut butter is her favorite (a woman after my Hubby’s heart, I think!) but adds: “the kids love pumpkin whoopie pies.” Her favorite place to get them made me laugh; she said “my kitchen.” OK, we’ll come visit! :)

She also mentioned that in Pittsburgh, they’re known as “Gobs,” which I totally didn’t know!

So, any other recommendations? Do you guys like the red velvet ones? Or the ones with the yellow cake instead of the chocolate outside?

    I’ve been living in SF for 9 years now, but I’m from Adams County originally. I’d been craving whoopie pies; afterall, nobody here had heard of them. . . at least til last year. Another Pennsylvania expat started a ‘gob’ business (he’s from Western PA, naturally) and he’s become a local sensation! He’s come up with some pretty fantastic flavor combinations. Check ‘em out!

    Classic is my favorite, but red velvet is a nice change of pace and since it’s hard to find when you’re out and about you have to grab them when you see them!
