Battle of the Whoopie Pies

People in Maine think they invented the Lancaster County treat

Uh Oh. The Amish Are Pissed. Folks in Maine have filed a bill proposing the whoopie pie be named the official state dessert of the northern state. However, as any good Pennsylvanians knows, the treat has origins in Lancaster. [New York Times] The Pennsylvania Dutch Convention and Visitors Bureau is on the case.  They’ve created a “Save Our Whoopie” campaign, which includes this (sort of weird but well-intentioned) video promotion.
