What is a Whoopie Pie?

We love them! We eat them! But have you ever wondered where the name “Whoopie Pie” came from?

These two soft cookies made into a sandwich originally started with Amish bakers. Many Amish recipes come from generations that have passed down the recipes, so no one really knows. But it’s been told that when the Amish children would find these treats in their lunch bags, they would shout “Whoopie!”

In the early 1920’s the Whoopie Pies were sold at bakeries. And they have now evolved into many, many flavor combinations, although Marshmallow Fluff is the most popular for filling.
