    Who's stand is it?

    The best I've had so far came from Baked in Red Hook. Simply divine!

      As I recall, it's the Oak Grove Plantation (Ted Blew) stand. I've never tried the whoopie pies, but I do love the rest of the items he sells.

        The ones from Baked are awesome! Their cookbook has the recipe, and Martha Stewart demonstrated the pumpkin whoopie pie recipe on her show. I made the pumpkin ones and they were delicious.

        Try them at Glaser's Bake Shop on 87th and 1st. Terrific!

          I totally agree with you. I live a block away from Glaser's and I can't get enough of their whoopie pies!

          I bought some at Dag Hammarskjold plaza farmer's market. Pumpkin and chocolate. Don't remember the name though.

            One Girl Cookies has great Whoopie Pies. Looking at my pictures makes me want to have one right now.

              Omg. The best. Worth the trip out to Brooklyn.

                I tried them a little over a year ago and was not impressed at all. The pumpkin was just okay and the chocolate was either over baked or just plain stale. Dry and crumbly. It was pretty bad. I should have brought it back but couldn't be bothered at the time. I never went back.

                An I was a little turned off by he fact that they were advertising that they were the first(or only?) bakery to serve whoopie pies when baked was already selling them.

                  The ones I had were good.

                Tried the chocolate this past weekend. A little sweet for my taste, but pretty good. I'd recommend a glass of milk to go with.

                  That vendor has the BEST whoopies I've had so far and they're good enough that I'm willing to travel up to Columbia on Thursdays to buy them (Union Square won't permit them to be sold there, unfortunately). I like the fact that the chocolate ones are a bit drier at the edges--they're supposed to be simple, homemade-type goodies. They also have the right amount of filling, they're neither too large or too sweet, and the filling doesn't stick to the roof of your mouth. Second best is Labadie's in Maine (especially the peanut butter), third would be Wicked Whoopies (which are just too cloying), and fourth would be the dismal offerings at Whole Foods.
