Macro Monday

What a weekend so far! I had a first this weekend and I am here to show it to you and tell you about it!
I am sure everyone has heard of Whoopie Pies, except me of course until this weekend! I think they are a sweet treat more found in the States than here in Canada. I know that before this weekend, I had never seen or heard of them, much less tasted one.
One of the newer bakeries here in town called Traceycakes, had a Whoopie Pie special. Two for the price of one of these sweet little cakes. Never have I had one before so of course we made plans to go and check it out!

There were six different flavours, here are Toasted Marshmallow, Mint with Chocolate Sprinkles and Salted Caramel.
These ones are Cookies and Cream, Raspberry and Chocolate. Six different flavours so hubby and I got one of each kind to share.
My favorite is the Salted Caramel. With the chocolate cake cookie base, it was a perfect combination!

They were very good, about the size of Oreo Cookies but fatter, and so incredibly sickly sweet that no way could the two of us finish them off to the last crumb. We did give it a good try though!

We washed the Whoopie Pies down with locally roasted Coffee with cream and more sugar. We were so overdosed on the sugar of the Pies and the Caffiene of the coffee that we literally bounced out of the bakery after. I honestly think I poisoned myself, or at least came darn close to it. I won't be going there anytime soon to repeat the lesson but I am glad I got the chance to try out something new and live to tell about it!

I've heard of them, but never have tried them before. They look scrumptious. I love how you photographed them in the top photo.

There was just a battle over who was the originator of the Whoppie pies...It was a town in NH and a town in Pa. I am not sure who won. I stay away from these little treats because of the sugar load!!!! very tempting though! Great shots!

Love the whoopie pie pictures....wish I had the chocolate one right now! And you KNOW I want/need that coffee too! Great shots, all of them!

I LOVE it!
Whoppie Pies were a huge thing probably about 20 or so years ago here in the U.S. No fancy flavors, just plain. Then they just kind of disappeared, and when they returned a few years ago, there was every flavor one could possibly imagine. Love them (too much)!!!
Great shot, and now I'm hungry!
