2 Whoops · Oregon

A Western Whoop!

It’s a momentous day for sure here at Big Whoop HQ. Today we’re reviewing the very first whoopie pie we’ve sampled outside of New England! Last week I was on tour on the west coast and we played a show in the delightful small town of Ashland, Oregon. Home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and my friend Elias, it’s a beautiful community just north of the California border.

Ashland has many redeeming qualities

Before our gig, we stopped at Sauce for a wholesome dinner of tempeh/nutritional yeast/sprouted tofu/liquid aminos/yougettheidea. BUT…what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a refrigerator case chock-full-o whoopie pies! The two teen boys we were having dinner had been led to believe that whoopie pies only existed at this establishment. Poor waifs, if only they knew the land of bounty to the east!

An elusive creature, this west-coast whoopie was both GLUTEN-free and SUGAR-free, two ingredients which I had previously believed to be necessary for a proper whoopie pie. (Spoiler alert: it turns out that they are.) While this little whoopie pie tried as hard as it could, I can in good conscience only award it 2/5 Whoops.
