Ummmmm, at my Mother-in-law's house! :D

If you're in Boston, you need to make a pit stop at Mike's Pastry on Hanover St. in the historic North End. There are 50 or so outstanding Italian restaurants surrounding this well known part of Boston, and Mike's is one of the most reputable and most frequented bakeries there.

Yes, they do make an excellent whoopie pie although canolis and other specialties are also outrageously delicious.

If you're not in town, there are a number of supermarkets that carry whoopie pies, but I would suggest window shopping the neighborhood bakeries whereever you happen to be. There is nothing like a whoopie that you know has been truly freshly baked, especially for your first experience.

Moulton Farm in Meredith, NH. Home-made whoopie pies in chocolate and pumpkin. I'm not a big fan of sweets, but I can't go through Meredith without stopping for a pumpkin whoopie pie.

I'll be in Mid-Southern CT (Hartford-NewHaven corridor). Any recommendations in that neck of the woods.

For different reasons. Look at the website for my oldest D's team and you will know why. Better yet send me an e-mail via USCHO and we can discuss. :)

I recommend this place: http://www.wickedwhoopies.com/index.php

They'll even ship anywhere! I get the big one every year for my birthday cake. There's no denying the power of the whoopie pie.
