Whoopie Pies? Please...

I have nothing against a whoopie pie, but shouldn't the state dessert have a more tangible connection to state agriculture? Whoopie pies are basically pure junk through and through: that's all well and good, but such a thing shouldn't be enshrined as an emblem of the state, no matter what the powerful whoopie pie lobby tries to say.

Instead, I propose that the official state desert be nothing other than the humble blueberry pie. Delicious, undeniably Maine, and made from a wild product of Maine's natural abundance.

Don't seem to be able to leave a comment without making it a response to a post. (Can you fix that?) Anyway, have you seen this?
