The Most Delicious Day in Lancaster County! The annual Whoopie Pie Festival features more than 100 different Whoopie Pie flavors and is held at the Hershey Farm Restaurant & Inn, located in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country.

Who can resist rich, creamy icing spread between two soft, delicious cakes? They’ve been a favorite Lancaster County confection for years. And now the Whoopie Pie isn’t just for eating!

The Bakery at Hershey Farm has been hard at work developing 25 new, never before seen at the Whoopie Pie Festival, whoopie pie flavors!

While I am unable to share ALL of the new flavors I can share a few of my favorites.

  • Strawberry/Pineapple

A ripe strawberry cake with sweet whipped pineapple filling. The pie is made with real strawberries and pineapple. Very refreshing.

  • Chocolate Dipped Chocolate Pineapple

To be fair, my vote usually leans toward anything chocolate, but take something chocolate and dip it in more chocolate and I am there. The whipped pineapple filling is a sweet and unusual surprise.

  • Confetti/Raspberry

Moist white confetti cake sandwiches a sweet and rich raspberry filling. Almost too pretty to eat. Almost.

  • Chocolate Chunk/Chocolate Cream Cheese

See above for my views on chocolate. This whoopie pie combines buttery yellow cake, chocolate chunks and whipped chocolate cream cheese into the perfect bite. A chocolate lovers treat.

  • Confetti/ Coffee

Imagine color studded confetti cake filled with whipped coffee flavored filling. Imagine your first bite. Imagine the sweet cake crumbling in your mouth as the coffee flavor explodes on your tongue. Imagine yourself realizing that you have only taken your first bite and that there are many more bites to go. Smile.

My favorites listed above are only 5 of the 150 unusual flavors expected at the 2012 Whoopie Pie Festival! I hope you’re as excited as I am for the other 145!
