If they’re not a New England specialty, they sure aren’t a national one! They don’t seem to sell them in the west. I just returned from a trip to Massachusetts (where I grew up). Stopped in a "village store" in East Orleans and was in whoopie pie heaven. They had *fresh* PUMPKIN WHOOPIE PIES! They also had Steve’s Snacks ones, which I did not try because their homemade pumpkin ones were so good that when I returned the next day, I had to get another one! By the way, the Steve’s whoopie pies were noticeably smaller than these unnamed pumpkin whoopies. But Steve’s had a maple nut flavor that I wish I’d bought for later consumption.
