Time Out For Whoopie began in 2010 when Shannon entered a Whoopie Pie contest at the local fair in Vermont. She had never entered anything at the fair before, but there is a first for everything! Much to her surprise, she won the blue ribbon for her Pumpkin Whoopie Pie, which motivated her to enter again in 2011. She then won the yellow ribbon for her Chocolate Strawberry Whoopie Pie. In 2012 they changed their mandatory requirements that all contestants had to follow... they all had to use the same recipe for the Traditional Chocolate Whoopie Pie. Although Shannon felt this impeded on her creativity she still decided to enter and she won the red ribbon! This completed her collection! All of this helped her realize her love for baking and allowed her to be creative and experiment with new yummy creations. She has worked in the social work field for the past 14 years, but her most recent employer made a hard decision for her. She chose to take on the journey that fit better with her family life. She opened her own Whoopie Pie business and due to taking some time out of her career in the social working field she came up with the name "Time Out For Whoopie".
Traditional Whoopie Pies
Delicious Traditional Whoopie Pies are chocolate cakes with vanilla cream centers.
I think I had one or two of these and there are four, Cade absolutely loved them! These were his first Whoopie Pie's and if I would have let him they all would have been gone immediately. The cakes were soft and moist as well as the cream filling. Nothing was dried out and even after opening the little pouches and leaving them in the box over night they were still moist! Hard and dry cakes or cream is gross, so I was quite surprised when we woke up the next day and they were still moist! Awesome!
Maple Walnut Whoopie Pies
The Maple Walnut Whoopie Pies are made with maple flavored cakes with walnuts in them and the cream is a sweet maple cream. The maple used for these Whoopie Pies is made in Vermont and comes from Poor Farm Sugar Works in Colchester. These can be made with or without the walnuts in the cakes.
These were Ezio's treat as he is allergic to chocolate, this was his first Whoopie Pie and he loved it! He greatly enjoyed his 4 pack of mini Maple Walnut Whoopie Pies! I didn't try one of these as they were for him and Cade and I received 8 mini Whoopie Pies.
He was satisfied and kept pointing to the box of them for more so I had to hide them, out of sight out of mind. Even after all of the Whoopie Pies were gone Cade and Ezio both kept checking the box for more. In all honesty, I did as well. They were so delicious and gone too quick.
Time Out For Whoopie also offers gluten free Whoopie Pies by substituting for gluten free flour. There are cream filled, cream cheese filled and mousse filled Whoopie Pies in a variety of delicious flavors! Check out all of their flavors here.
