Seen any Whoopies in SD?

I'm a Whoopie addict. I manage to let myself make them only, like, every two years, but the NYTimes just did a story on them-- ( -- which made me realize I'm not alone in my guilty pleasure. Has anybody seen any Whoopies in a San Diego bakery or restaurant?

  1. If you can't find them locally, I can recommend this place.

    Worth the shipping.

      1. I do not know if she carries them, but Elizabethan Desserts in Encinitas may have them

          Thanks for the suggestions, cstr and Enorah. I 'll call Elizabethan. I"ve mailordered from two places including Wicked Whoopies-- but not as good as my homemade.

              Saw that same article too and have been on the hunt...

                I didn't mean to be snarky, cstr. It's just that if I have to order and then pay shipping, something ought to be purty durn awesome. I also ordered from West Coast Whoopies. They arrived so smooshed that the order was repeated and doubled for free. But still didn't win me over. . . I've been making Whoopies for 25 years now and I just want someone to do it for me!

          1. The article said that both Whole Foods and Traders should carry them. I did not see them in Whole Foods, so I went to Traders with the NYT, and after careful reading, I think it is only the NYC stores that actually stock the item. I would love to try one though.

            1. I just saw that the NYT article gave a Whoopie recipe, which I missed the first time around. Maybe I'll try that. (I normally use the Maida Heatter recipe.) But I'm gladly patronize a bakery and let them do the work!
