Refrigerated, these whoopie pies will remain fresh for up to 5 days

Brand: Cranberry Island Kitchen
Some people call them gobs, bobs, or black moons. Karen Haase and Carol Ford, the baking wizards behind Portland, Maine’s Cranberry Island Kitchen, call them whoopie pies. "What is this strange whoopie thing?" you ask. Well, it's a delicious sandwich-like dessert made from two small chocolate cakes stuck together with a gob of icing. Beloved by none other than Martha Stewart, Cranberry Island Kitchen's gourmet whoopie pies include butter, water, eggs, and sea salt harvested from Maine (where the whoopie pie is the official state treat), and are shaped like mussel and scallop shells as a gentle nod to their coastal origins. The basic whoopie pie comes in chocolate, golden, and pumpkin; 4-Layer Gourmet Whoopie Pie Cake, a larger and more complex version of its smaller sibling, is available in even more flavors, including lemon & lime and Cointreau. Cranberry Island Kitchen also sells unique gourmet food products, rich and delicious buttermilk cakes, adorable lobster-shaped shortbread cookies, and gift sets for every occasion from baby showers to birthdays (the Break-up Box, which includes 12 X-shaped, double-chocolate whoopie pies and wads of tissues, is a favorite).
