Maine recently blew a Pennsylvania record out of the water by creating a Whoopie Pie weighing in at 1,062 pounds – a full 812 pounds heavier than the Pennsylvania Pie. The event was hosted by Portland radio station Coast 93.1, with Wicked Whoopies donating time and materials. The enormous pie was completed near the Maine Mall food court, with slices then being exchanged for donations which would send Whoopie Pies to Maine troops serving abroad.
“It was a monster, a delicious, frosted monster,” said Victoria Foley, promotions coordinator for the Portland Radio Group, which owns Coast 93.1.
A bill has been introduced in the state legislature which would make the Whoopie Pie the state’s official treat. However, they may not be recognized for their Whoopie Pie achievement, as a representative from the Guinness Book of World Records was not present to observe and document the construction of the giant pastry.
