Whoopie Pies

A few of us where in the mood for a sweet pig-out after dinner last nite and somehow, whoopie pies became the mission. With no bakery open at 8pm on Sunday in the burbs, a Hannafords would have to do. Well, once inside, I gravitated to their peanut butter and traditonal whoopie pies and picked up both. However, I noticed a sign and small bin stating "we now carry "Wicked Whoopies". I saw "WW" featured on a few food shows as being the ultimate whoopie pie. I bought three.... traditional, oatmeal and chocolate chip. Well I was darn glad I bought the Hannaford's own brand... Wicked Whoopies were wicked horrible. I still can't get the Crisco slime off my teeth. The cake portion was oily with no flavor, the filling was abominable with no hint of vanilla or custardy flavor. The oatmeal was two hard cookies with the same bland, lard whip. I'm shocked, given the great press Wicked Woopies has gotten. And I'm mortified, because I mailed ordered a few dozen to a relative who is a whoopie fanatic for a birthday. I guess I should never send a foodie gift without taste-testing. Wicked Bad yucky Woopies.
