Breaking: Maine faces tough decision-Whoopie pie or Blueberries?02 Feb 2011, Posted by Uncategorized in
I usually like to keep DessertBuzz focused on New York but this news was just too big. Maine’s Kennebec Journal reports that Maine’s legislature is poised to make the whoopie pie the official state dessert. Seems like a reasonable idea to me whoopie pies are crowd pleasers even if Jacques Torres never heard of them–but hold on!
The Journal continues: “On Monday, at a hearing before the Legislature’s State and Local Government Committee, Rep. Donald Pilon dismissed whoopies as “frosting delivery vehicles” and suggested that wild-blueberry pie deserves to be the state’s official dessert. Did he steal that line from DessertBuzz?
The rest of the article is actually pretty funny. What would New York’s state dessert be?
