where to buy pumpkin bars

I used to get them from my local Corner Bakery, but they're not bringing that back this year. Instead, they have pumpkin whoopie pies. If anyone knows where I can get them in the Northern Virginia area, please post! Many thanks.

PS: I'm crazy about pumpkin flan as well.

      Thanks. I did go and got some. But they didn't have any plain ones. The ones they had were with walnuts. But it fixed my temporary cravings. The search continues.

    2. and the pumpkin whoopie pies are pretty darn tasty.

        This may sound strange, but I LOVE the pumpkin bread at Starbuck's!

          Went to Corner Bakery today (Rockville) and they were currently out of them, however, they were being advertised and the staff told me they make them everyday.
          Maybe they are not at every Corner Bakery(?) That does not make sense to me, though. Anyway, I am going back to get one soon, as it sounds awesome-I would love to try it. In the meantime, I got a slice of their cinnamon creme cake which is heavenly!!!

            I've been by Corner Bakery about 4 times already and haven't been able to get them. Always out!

          Everytime I'm there, they're out of them!

            I tried my first pumpkin woopie pie yesterday at Corner Bakery. I thought it was very good- but a little skimpy on the delicious creme-filling - and I thought the whole thing was a bit tiny-But it was very yummy.

              try the pumpkin whoopie pies from the U St farmers market while you can

              Absolutely incredible. Addictive. Sinful!

                Are pumpkin whoopie pies becoming trendy? I saw some in Giant yesterday. I'm not a fan of pumpkin anything, but was curious about the whoopie-pie thing (I like chocolate-vanilla creme ones).

                  Not sure - I saw 'em at Trader Joes today. However, the U St baked goods are SO good. She makes different kinds, no sure way to know what she has. all the stuff is from their farm - the pumpkins, the good. She makes oatmeal ones and chocolate peanut butter ones, too

                  1. re: Jeserf

                    When I saw them at Giant, I was really surprised. Honestly, they didn't look very appetizing .

                    The ones at U St. sound good. Thanks for letting me know about the oatmeal and choc. peanut butter ones. Will have to check them out!

                  really good pumpkin whoopie pies at the dairy godmother in del ray as well.

                    Is the U Street farmers market easy to get to? Is there parking?

                    1. re: chocopaws

                      it's easy to get to as there is a metro stop a block away and many bus lines. I cannot attest to the parking situation, as I walk there. But, it's a residential area so you might get lucky depending on what time you go. I BELIEVE there's a lot right on U St, but not sure if it's open/available at the time. It shouldn't be a big problem, though - much easier than the dupont market if you drive there.
