Never had a whoopie pie, you say? Don’t even know what a whoopie pie is? Well, this is the perfect event for you! Who can resist rich, creamy filling spread between two soft and delicious cakes? Whoopie pies have been a favorite dessert in Lancaster County for a very long time, and at this festival, the whoopie pie isn’t just for eating!
I had never heard of a whoopie pie before I came to Lancaster, and then when I did see them, I thought they just came in chocolate with vanilla filling. Not so – just yesterday I was at Central Market looking at the sweets, and I saw pumpkin with cream cheese filling, red velvet with vanilla filling, peanut butter with vanilla filling, and a few other flavors in addition to the traditional! Amazing!
Head to Hershey Farm Restaurant & Inn on Saturday, September 18 from 11am – 5pm to enjoy the events including a treasure hunt, whoopie pie race, whoopie pie long launch, whoopie pie checkers, whoopie pie yell off, whoopie pie eating contest create the most creative whoopie pie and MUCH more!
