Whoopie pies are a New England invention. Some say Maine, some say PA. Which is why I was really suprised when I saw this. Over the break I was driving with my family from Austin to Houston. You’ll have to zoom in to the sign to see why I was so confused. I did some research, apparently someone (or a company?) makes these and brings them to a few Valero gas stations. It’s exactly the kind of thing you see in corner stores and gas stations in Maine, but it seemed totally out of place in Southern Texas. I was kind of mad.
If you want to try Clover’s whoopie pies, come by the restaurant tonight. We’ll be baking them up early evening on. We’ll post on @cloverHSQ when they’re coming out of the oven. We’ll be making traditional whoopie pies, chocolate cake with cream cheese filling.
Whoopie Pie Friday. Tonight 1/6.
