Sweet Treat Day III

Today’s sweet treat come all the way to NYC from Maine! Feast your eyes on some REAL Whoopee Pies!!!

Okay I’m not a Whoopee Pie expert, but if I’m going to indulge in one, this is the kind I’d like to eat. The Cranberry Island pies are sold in the freezer section of the Lobster Place in Chelsea Market. All natural ingredients and a beachy seashell shaped case make these whoopee pies stand out from the rest.

Even though the pies were in the freezer section after only about 15 minutes of rest time the cake was pliable and moist. The cold inner filling was not only refreshing but insanely delicious! I really felt like I was in the Florida Keys enjoying a fresh slice of key lime pie! The entire Whoopee pie was lighter than most and the filling to cake ratio was perfect. They carry Chocolate pies at the market as well but I would be hard pressed to pass up the lemon lime.

So there you have it! A little bit of Maine right in our own backyard. You know what I suggest? Order a lobster roll from the Shack-in-the-Back, grab some wine at Chelsea Wine Vault, whoopee pies and have yourself a Maine picnic along the Hudson River. What could be a better way to spend the winding days of summer. Cheers!
