Review and Giveaway: Whoopsies! Whoopie Pies...

My month-long blogiversary celebration is winding down, but I'm going out with a bang! My friend Marcia at Whoopsie's! Gourmet Whoopie Pies recently sent me a sampler of her delicious summer-inspired whoopie pies. I first tried these little bites of cakey cookies and whipped icing...and shared them in here...last summer. I was immediately hooked. The icing on top...or in the middle in this case...is Marcia. She's passionate about her product, and it shows! She uses all natural ingredients, and each batch is made by hand. I recently received a sampler box that contained mini Whoopsies! in a bunch of awesome flavors. They arrived in perfect shape, and they were wrapped up in cute and colorful packaging.


As cute as the presentation was, the whoopie pies tasted even better! Moist and flavorful, with just the right amount of filling that's somewhere between marshmallow fluff and buttercream in consistency. The flavors I sampled included:
  • Cocoa Nuts: chocolate cake with coconut filling
  • Incredible Hunk: chocolate chip cake with vanilla filling
  • Classic: chocolate cake with vanilla filling
  • Moshely Coconut: coconut cake with coconut filling
  • Beach Blonde: coconut cake with vanilla filling
  • Red Velvet: red velvet cake with vanilla filling
  • Beach Party: coconut cake with raspberry jam and limoncello filling
As soon as I opened the box, I HAD to taste one...and the first flavor I grabbed was the Incredible Hunk. A fun, creative name for a very yummy whoopie pie. Somehow, I did manage to restrain myself long enough to snap a picture between bites.


Over the next couple of days, the entire box was devoured. I took some to a share with my co-workers during a training session, and the results were unanimous: big thumps up from everyone who tried them! I love coconut, so I enjoyed all of the flavors...but my personal favorite was Beach Party. The combo of coconut, lemon, and raspberry was INSANE! The purists among my taste testers raved about the Red Velvet and Classic. As you can see from the pictures, each whoopie pie comes individually sealed for freshness...and the flavor is clearly labeled.

So...who wants to try some of Whoopsies! whoopie pies? To enter for a chance to win a box of 10 assorted minis, here's what you need to do.

The winner will be notified this weekend...good luck!!
