It’s now a law – you must eat Whoopie Pies (not really, but they are definitely yummy)!
On April 21, 2011 a bill passed making Whoopie Pies Maine’s Official State Treat. This bill became law on September 28, 2011 (90 days after the legislative session ended).
The bill titled, “‘An Act To Designate the Whoopie Pie as the State Treat,” states:
The whoopie pie, a baked good made of 2 cakes with a creamy frosting between them, is the official state treat.
Come into a Fireside Inn & Suite and enjoy a complimentary Whoopie Pie (up to 2 per room). We enacted our Whoopie Pie giveaway back in March – we are ahead of the curve!
